Claiming that the increase in Covid-19 cases was an indicator that Tamil Nadu was on the cusp of a third wave, he called upon the government to announce night curfew as well as declaring holidays for schools as has been already done in northern states.
 He said even people who had taken two doses of vaccine were infected by Omicron, and the school children have not yet been vaccinated.
 Ramadoss said that only solution available was to declare holidays to schools and urged the government to increase vaccination and testing across the state.
