Meanwhile, health secretary J Radhakrishnan said that districts may review minor increases and take up control measures to avoid cases from increasing again.

“In the last two days Chennai, Vellore and Chengalpattu have been showing variations though overall figures are only about 35 for 32,000 tests,” he added. “So, contact tracing and suppressing the virus completely by control measures should be the goal.”
