In Tamil Nadu, the total COVID-19 cases crossed the ninety-thousand mark with 3,943 people tested positive yesterday. The new cases included 2,393 in Chennai. One of those who tested positive for the virus is the State Higher Education Minister K. P. Anbalagan. He is admitted into a private hospital in Chennai.
 
The active caseload in the state remains 38,889. From hospitals, 2,325 people were discharged after recovery. Sixty others died of the disease yesterday, taking the toll to 1,201.
 
In terms of the total infection, the state has ascended to the second place in the country, after Maharashtra. AIR correspondent reports that the State Administration says increased testing, efficient clinical management and effective tracing of contacts are part of the strategy to contain the viral spread. Officials say increased testing may show higher infection figures.
 
They assert that more testing leads to the identification of more hidden cases who could be isolated and treated. They say it will help reduce the further spread. Meanwhile, the State Government has announced a 75-crore rupees scheme to provide piped oxygen supply to the patients in 59 major Government hospitals.
