People need not fear over spreading of corona as no community spreading was reported so far, said Erode corporation commissioner Dr M Elangovan. Talking to newsmen, on Monday, he said that the civic body took enough steps to check the spread though many were quarantined at Kannagi, Agathiyar Veedhi, VVCR, Sampath Nagars, Rajajipuram, Thirunagar Colony, etc.
The houses where the affected persons were staying and nearby houses, which were quarantined, were monitored fully. The inmates of the quarantined homes were given all essential goods and PCR tests were also intensified.
The civic body conducted such tests for all vegetable traders at the bus stand and call taxi drivers and the results became negative. As for as Erode town, no community spreading was seen, he said and pleaded to the people to follow all safety measures like using masks and following social distancing strictly.
