Chennai: A five-member team of Indian Foreign Service officers consulted on the plans of the Tamil Nadu Health Department at Omanturar Government Pannoku Hospital, Chennai. Minister M. Subramanian and Health Department Secretary Senthilkumar explained to them the programs of the Tamil Nadu Health Department such as Seeking Medicine and Saving Lives.
Following this, Minister Subramanian said to the media, “Tamil Nadu has taken the first place in the national level in the provision of post-partum contraceptive rings for women. The health department has filed an appeal in the case related to the sale of eggs in various places like Erode and Salem.
Newly established artificial insemination centers should operate within the norms. Strict rules are imposed. Strict action will be taken against anyone who does not follow this.
A booster dose vaccination campaign is underway in Tamil Nadu. So far 3 crore 51 lakh people are still to be put. The 34th Mega Vaccination Camp is going to be held at 50,000 locations on the 7th.
A booster dose of vaccines will also be administered on the day. So far no one has been affected by monkeypox in Tamil Nadu. If they are symptomatic, their blood samples will be tested at Kindy King’s laboratory and the results will be provided.
The chiefs have been directed to examine whether the doctors working in the government hospitals are properly handling the attendance register. Steps will be taken to re-implement biometric system for attendance register of doctors in hospitals. It is regrettable if doctors work overtime. Adequate measures will be taken to prevent the doctors from being under stress,” he said.
