Health officials claim that all the four patients, who were admitted at Tirupathur government hospital, were Severe Acute Respiratory Infection (SARI) cases and had various co-morbidities. District Collector M. P. Sivanarul has clarified that there is enough oxygen supply and four oxygen generation plants will also be constructed in the district on a war footing. However health officials denied this. Health officials claim that as on date they have 2,000 beds and every day steps are being taken to increase this. Meanwhile seven COVID-19 patients died in Vaniyambadi government general hospital on Wednesday.
