Government and private hospitals in Chennai are overwhelmed. This is not to spread panic, but people in Chennai need to realise the seriousness of the situation and understand what we are up against.

Below are visuals from 3 major govt hospitals in the city.

Stanley Hospital:
Rajiv Gandhi Govt General Hospital: Patients are given oxygen in ambulance even as they wait for admission & allotment of beds.
The situation is the same at Omandurar too.
Genuine request to everyone: Wear a mask properly, sanitize your hands frequently, don't step out of your homes unnecessarily. Let's do all that we can to break the chain.

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

One hand you are asking the more privileged people to put up a spectacle of lights while on the other hand the poor man’s plight is itself becoming a shameful spectacle - #KamalHaasan
While your world lit up oil diyas in their balconies, the poor are struggling to gather enough oil to bake their next roti - #KamalHaasan
I am sure you don’t want to be a balcony government only for the balcony people by completely ignoring the poor who are biggest constituent of our society, our support system and the foundation on which the middle-class, the well-to-do and the rich build their lives- #KamalHaasan

Neeraj Verma & Rashmi travelled all the way to from #Nagpur to #Sriharikota to witness the historic #Chandrayaan2 take off. I asked them what do they do for a living? Their answer amazed me, We are science activists (vigyaanan sevak) said the couple. Like how? #IndiaMoonMission
The couple travelled more than 1100 KM's to reach #Sriharikota from their village near #Nagpur border to be a part of @isro #Chandrayan2 launch

The couple travelled for more than 20 hours & reached #Sriharikota on 15th July, but the launch was called off in the last minute
They went back to their village & by the time they reached home the next launch date was announced

The couple left home again and travelled all the way back to #Sriharikota just to be there to witness the historic #MoonMission2 launch
