Tamil Nadu actor points out the ‘No Bed’ scenario of hospitals – Minister threatens for actions. TN minister has warned action against the actor for his video that no beds were available to treat COVID-19 patients.

A popular theatre artiste and Former Television newsreader S Varadharajan, better known as ‘TV’ Varadharajan, recently put out a video statement in which he shared a personal, second-hand experience and said that there were no beds available in Chennai to treat COVID-19 patients.

The video went viral and the Tamil Nadu Health and Family Welfare Minister C Vijayabhaskar during his press meet on Monday condemned Varadharajan’s statement and said that action would be taken against him as per the Pandemic Act (The Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897).

“Varadharajan has spread false news at this time when we have a major disaster. As per the Pandemic Act we will take action. What he has done is a big mistake because during the time of a crisis, people are in a state of panic. Therefore, such a statement is wrong and needs to be condemned. The state government has continually been doing all it can during this pandemic,” the minister said.

“We spoke to the hospital owner, Chairman, Managing Director… we spoke to everyone. Nobody could help us. They are very frank. It is true that there are no beds available,” Varadarajan said.
