He also ordered released Rs 60 crore from the State Disaster relief fund to spruce up the preventive mechanism for containing the spread of the virus, which, however, has infected only one person in the state so far.
So far, a total of 79 samples have been taken from people in the state. Speaking to TNM, Dr Kolandasamy, Director of Public Health and Preventive Medicine says for one to be tested, they will have to fall under the testing criteria.
“There is a testing criterion – there must be travel history, symptoms or they must come under the list of contacts of someone suspected to be affected by the virus. In TN we had only one positive case and we took samples from 8 family members. Whereas in Kerala, the number of infected 19, they might have taken at least 8-10 samples per case. Naturally, their number will go up to 200.”
