“For the past few days in Tamil Nadu, more and more students who can go to school are affected by flu. Chennai Egmore Children’s Hospital does not have enough beds for children with fever. Swine flu is spreading rapidly. It is sad that the government has not released this officially. The H1N1 virus can spread very quickly. A virus that can affect the respiratory tract. .
Be very careful, alert and aware. Flu can make the public, children and parents nervous. There is a shortage of medicines in Tamil Nadu. Nurses themselves find people and report that there is no medicine, no pills, no antibiotics in the medical program. People’s welfare should be concerned about children’s welfare. The fever is spreading. A holiday has also been announced for schools in the neighboring state of Puducherry.
However, the Health Minister has said that there is no need for school holidays in Tamil Nadu. My request is to approach this matter with care. There is no need to hide the spread of the flu. Doctors say that various types of fevers including swine fever, dengue and influenza are affecting.
During the last 8 years, 30 thousand nurses and doctors were openly appointed by the Medical Staff Selection Board. At the same pace employees should be appointed now. Special wards should be set up exclusively for fever in all Government Medical College Hospitals and Head Hospitals.
Immediately establish fever wards especially for children and ensure 24-hour staffing of doctors and nurses.
The same wards should also have equipment that can take blood samples immediately and test them. Also, it is necessary to identify and treat what type of fever the person suffering from fever has developed in 24 hours. The Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu should immediately intervene in this and speed up what kind of fever is spreading in which districts and what kind of steps should be taken,” he said.
