To prevent the surging positive cases of COVID 19 virus in the state, Tamil nadu government has imposed a full lockdown from 10th of May to 24. The order was issued a day after the state recorded its biggest day spike of over 26,000 new COVID infections. The newly elected Chief Minister MK Stalin said that the lockdown was being enforced due to โ€œunavoidable reasonsโ€ in his statement. The decision, Mr Stalin added, was taken based on inputs received at a review meeting he had with district collectors on Friday, besides consultations with medical experts.

It has been reported that the full lockdown will be enforced from 4 AM of May 10 to 4 AM of 24th May. Banks and ration shops are allowed to function with 50 % staffs and restaurants will be allowed to give takeaways for the customers. The order said that no cabs, auto rickshaws should function unless itโ€™s for funeral, hospital or wedding emergency. The order came in as MK Stalinโ€™s first ever major decision.
