Hudhud times: Chennai | Amid fears of a third Covid wave, Tamil Nadu today extended till October 31 a ban on public festivities and any gathering of a religious, political or cultural nature. Chief Minister MK Stalin’s administration is apprehensive about these events turning into super-spreaders of the infection.

The DMK-led state government pointed towards Kerala’s battle with the pandemic and a resurgent Nipah infection to extend the ban. It also cited the Centre’s advisory on a possible third Covid wave sweeping the country in the months of September or October.
