TN entering most difficult phase of Covid: Expert

Chennai: At a time when Covid-19 cases are rising sharply in Tamilnadu, a senior government health expert has issued a warning to the people.

Tamilnadu Covid panel expert committee member Prabhdeep Kaur who is also the Deputy Director, National Institute of Epidemiology, said in a tweet: ‘We are just entering the most difficult phase of #CovidSecondWave in Tamil Nadu.”

She added: “Next 2 months – only thing you should worry about is saving yourself, your family and community from #Covid19 ; I am disappointed to see poor mask compliance and lack of social distancing even now!!”

Only recently she had said that cases have been growing in an exponential manner. ‘People must cooperate by wearing face medical masks and avoiding all non-essential activities. We must do this to protect ourselves, our community and society at large,’ Kaur had said.
