Chief Minister MK Stalin on Tuesday reviewed the coronavirus situation across the State and asked officials to ensure 100% vaccination in all local bodies.

Stalin held the meeting in the backdrop of Covid surge being seen in neighbouring contries like China. Measures to prevent a further spread here were discussed. In the meeting, Stalin directed the authorities to identify the 50 lakh people who are yet to receive the first dose of vaccination against Covid-19, and 1.32 crore people yet to receive the second dose.

Local representatives of the health department in all the districts should identify those people who are eligible to receive the vaccination and make use of the mega vaccination camp conducted every week by the department, he said in an official release. Stalin said the local panchayats that have attained 100 per cent coverage in terms of vaccination be honoured for the feat so that their accomplishment encourages other panchayats to follow suit.
