Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin on Sunday flagged off 50 car ambulances for use in five zones of the city corporation for transporting COVID-19 patients to hospitals.

Stalin, who is on a visit to three western districts of Erode, Tirupur and Coimbatore, arrived in Coimbatore after reviewing the situation and facilities at Perundurai IRT Hospital in Erode and a centre set up at Kumaran College in Tirupur, in view of the increasing Covid-19 positive cases.

Ten ambulances were dedicated to each zone.

Stalin then visited Government ESI Hospital, an exclusive facility for COVID-19 treatment. Wearing a PPE kit, he went around the facility and made enquiries about the conditions with some patients.

State Medical and Family Welfare Minister M. Subramanian and his cabinet colleagues K Ramachandran and R Sakkarapani were also present.

The chief minister will hold discussions with senior officials in the three districts about the situation and steps to be taken to control the pandemic spread.
