A community- based transgender organisation, Sahodaran in collaboration with the Greater Chennai Corporation organised this event.
"We are an organisation that focuses on lesbian, gay, bisexual, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) rights and sexual health. During this lockdown, we have decided to also spread awareness about COVID-19. During the last two months, we have organised awareness and prevention programmes across Chennai city. Kolattam is one of the most historical dances of our state and people warmly welcomed us and many have enjoyed our performances," Jaya, General Manager of Sahodaran told ANI.
Jaya further said they have so far performed in zones 9 and 11 of the city.
There are various social awareness campaign being run around in the city to create an awareness campaign.
The awareness among the public seems to bear fruit which can be understood by the considerable decrease in the positive cases for the past few days.
Tamil Nadu now has a total of 1,92,964 COVID-19 cases, including 52, 939 active cases, with 1,36,793 recoveries and 3,232 fatalities, the state's health department said. The State Capital, Chennai saw 1,336 new cases with a tally 90,900 in total. Though Chennai leads the COVID cases toll in the state, its percentage of contribution towards the State's tally has considerably reduced.
