Kerala Health Minister K Sudhakar said on Wednesday that there is no need to panic about reports of tomato flu in neighbouring Kerala because the disease is endemic to that state, and he directed authorities in the border district to remain vigilant in order to control its spread. Tomato flu is a rare viral disease that causes red rashes, skin irritation, and dehydration. It gets its name from the blisters it causes, which resemble tomatoes.
In Kerala, children under the age of five are being affected by tomato fever. “Though some symptoms are similar to COVID-19, the tomato flu is not the same. These symptoms are common in other types of viral infections as well. There is no need to panic because authorities have been instructed to remain vigilant. Furthermore, the tomato flu is endemic in Kerala “Sudhakar explained. The most common symptom of tomato flu is large red blisters the size of tomatoes. Other symptoms include high fever, body aches, joint swelling, and fatigue, which are similar to chikungunya, according to the Minister’s office.
Siddaramaiah stated that Ravindranath was assigned to investigate and prosecute those who obtained fake certificates. “According to Ravindranath’s statement, he investigated a few influential leaders and as a result, he was transferred by the government,” Siddaramaiah said, adding that this was incorrect. “Former minister and BJP leader M P Renukacharya obtained a forged ‘Beda Jangama’ caste certificate for his daughter. This was even debated in the state legislature.
He is ineligible to participate in Beda Jangama. There should be legal action taken against him “According to the Congress leader’s media statement. “We cannot expect stability and good governance where there is corruption. The BJP government is riddled with corruption. How can we expect justice to be served?” According to the Leader of the Opposition. Renukacharya, who is also Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai’s political secretary, has not responded to Siddaramaiah’s allegations.
