There are two new Coronavirus cases in Tamil Nadu and the total count has gone upto 9. Now the health minister of Tamil Nadu Mr. Vijayabhaskar has officially confirmed regarding the two new cases. One of the cases is from California and she is admitted in Stanley Medical College, she is a 64 year old female returning from California. The other is a 43 year old male from Dubai, he is under isolation at Tirunelveli Medical College.
The contacts of both these people are being traced at present. We are not sure how the 43 year old male travelled to Tirunelveli from Chennai, if he had taken a public transport then tracing everyone will be a lot more difficult. The minister has advised all the citizens to stay at home and asked them to travel only if necessary.
