Coronavirus peak in Tamil Nadu: Experts say that in Tamil Nadu, the coronavirus may peak at different times in different districts. In Chennai, if the lockdown continues, it may rise with more testing in the next few days.
After ten days, the infections may reduce as the infected persons will be isolated to result in fewer infections. But in the other districts, it depends on people in the villages without testing and spreading the virus.
All have to wait for the CM meeting with the medical expert panel to know about the lockdown status in Tamil Nadu.
