Mask made mandatory in Tamil Nadu’s Ranipet

Authorities in Tamil Nadu’s Ranipet have made wearing face masks mandatory in the district amid a surge in Covid cases in the state. District Collector S Valaramathi has also directed people to maintain social distancing in crowded areas.

However, the state health department has said that there is no need to panic as no major cluster has been observed in the state and most of the cases are isolated. However, it has asked elderly people and those with co-morbidities to wear masks and avoid crowded places.

Dr. Sanjay Rai, Professor of Community Medicine at AIIMS Hospital in Delhi, believes that at this time the booster dose of the vaccine can do more harm than good. Dr. Sanjay said, ‘Due to mutation in RNA virus, cases will keep on increasing and decreasing. This situation will remain the same in the coming times as well. There is no need to panic because of this. People who are infected with the new variant will develop immunity to the new disease. But more importantly, whether there is an increase in severity, hospitalization or mortality.
