Makkal Needhi Maiam founder Kamal Haasan on Tuesday urged his party cadres to continue efforts to help people in need to tide over the second wave of COVID-19 infections in Tamil Nadu.

In a letter, Mr. Haasan urged party cadres to find out the needs of local hospitals and primary health care centres and extend help. He also said that people should not hesitate or fear to get themselves vaccinated.

“I have taken two doses already. I did not have any side effects. Reduce going out in public as much as possible and send young people in the house to buy essentials. Wear masks if you have to venture in public due to unavoidable circumstances and avoid crowded places,” he said.

Mr. Haasan further urged people not to share unsubstantiated reports on social media and support small businesses during this time.
