Leader of Opposition M K Stalin on Thursday urged Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami to be transparent and conduct door to door testing in Chennai to control the spread of coronavirus. Stalin also attributed the spurt in positive cases in the State capital to keeping asymptomatic patients in home quarantine.
The LoP said the spurt in positive cases among doctors/nurses of GHs in Chennai, police and media personnel suggests that people on the frontline of defence against Covid-19 were not safe. They were infected because of the government’s failure in isolating them, he charged. “Are asymptomatic patients in home quarantine monitored by the people? Will cases increase daily in Chennai if they were monitored by the government? What kind of discussion is the CM engaged in daily?,”questioned Stalin.
