Chennai, Dec 30 (BPNS)

Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) founder leader, Dr. S.Ramadoss Thursday called upon the state government to direct schools and colleges to cancel physical classes and shift to online mode due to the surge in Omicron cases in the country.

The PMK leader said that the increase in Covid -19 cases was an indicator that Tamil Nadu was on the cusp of a third wave. He called upon the government to announce night curfew as well as declaring holidays to schools that have been already done in Northern states.

The senior leader said that even people who had taken two doses of vaccine were infected by the Omicron variant of Covid -19 and said that school children have not yet been vaccinated.

Dr. Ramadoss said that only solution available was to declare holidays to schools and urged the government to increase the vaccination and testing across the state.
