Sharing excerpts frm my conversations with the kin of deceased #COVID19 patients (who died between Jun 10 & 20) in #Madurai GRH.

Sadly, the conversations with people frm different walks of life seemed to bound by one common thread (read fully to know what).
1. Son of a 70-yr-old deceased COVID-19 pt frm Anuppanadi said his father ((a retired govt. teacher) was taken to a pvt. medical colg. hospital in Anuppanadi with fever & breathlessness as he had undergone a stenting procedure at that hospital about 1.5 years ago.
The son: “At the hospital, we were asked to produce a certificate/test result proving he was free from Covid-19 infection. My father was then taken to the GRH where he tested +ve for COVID-19. 3 days later, on June 15, he died at the Govt Rajaji Hospital (GRH).”

47 year old Mohan owns a salon in Madurai for the last 20 years. He earns Rs 600 profit everyday, and he has been saving every penny for the education of his only daughter. Nethra, 13 years old. Cc: @IASassociation
He had saved Rs 5 lakh, and wanted Nethra to become an IAS officer.

When the #lockdown started, and economic crisis crept in, the families in and around #Madurai became helpless. It was then that Nethra asked his father to use his Rs 5 lakh fund to #help the needy.
They created food packets, and fed 600 families in Madurai, using their saving of Rs 5 lakh. Nethra told her father that helping these poor people is the 1st priority right now. If she has to, she will become IAS officer later.

There seems to be some kind of #Corona competition going on in #Madurai between 2 ministers. At a time when PM, Union Ministers & State CMs are avoiding public appearances, looks like these TN Ministers can’t live without facing cameras 1/6
#Madurai reporters are already fed up & now scared to cover the events organised by these ministers where social distancing norms are blatantly flouted. Look at this report by @NairShilpa1308 to see how "well" these events are organised 👇🏽2/6
According to sources in #Madurai, there is a competition between Ministers Sellur Raju & RB Udaykumar to organise events & get media coverage. If RBU has an event in the morning then SR will hold one event in the evening or the next morning. 3/6
