“All essential services will be provided by the State Government. It is a very, very challenging situation.

I appreciate the State Government for taking many proactive steps,” a statement of the Governor released by Raj Bhavan stated.

“I have full trust in people of Tamil Nadu, let’s fight this challenge together. Humanity and India should win this fight and Tamil Nadu should lead the fight as a model state. Stay at home and stay safe,” the Governor said.

People, who have been asked for home quarantine must follow it scrupulously, he said and added: “Don't at all put life of yours, your dear ones in danger. Take care of your family and friends. Keep social distancing about 1.5 meters. Don't panic,” the statement said.
