Measures are being taken to screen passengers arriving in Tamil Nadu from neighbouring States in buses and trains, Chief Secretary K. Shanmugam said.
With Kerala and Karnataka reporting COVID-19 cases, he said, “We have been screening international travellers at airports and seaports. There are cases due to internal spread in the neighbouring States. So, Tamil Nadu has to be extra cautious in screening inter-State movement of persons. We have advised for screening of bus and train travellers using thermal scanners.”
He added that work on establishing quarantine facilities in Tambaram and Madurai was on. “As of now, isolation wards have been set up in hospitals. If these quarantine facilities are ready, it will be a better place and more safe,” he told reporters after a meeting with officials of consulates in the city.
Health Minister C. Vijayabaskar said the 45-year-old man, who had tested positive for COVID-19, was ready to be discharged after two mandatory tests returned negative for the virus. There are no new positive cases in the State. “However, as Kerala and Karnataka have positive cases, we are very alert and cautious and have taken up surveillance measures in the border districts,” he said.
