Though Sunday was ‘Kaanum Pongal’, traditionally celebrated by people by visiting places of their choice alongwith family and friends, they were confined to their homes this year

CHENNAI: A full-fledged shutdown was enforced on Sunday in Tamil Nadu to tackle the surge in COVID cases, while police cracked down on violators of curbs, imposed fine and seized vehicles involved in flouting norms. Though Sunday was 'Kaanum Pongal', traditionally celebrated by people by visiting places of their choice alongwith family and friends, they were confined to their homes this year in view of the one-day lockdown.

Popular hangout locations like beaches, zoos, cinemas, Mamallapuram and hill stations including the Nilgiris were all deserted besides roads and highways as public remained at home.

On Sunday, January 9, a complete one-day shutdown was enforced in Tamil Nadu which was the first in 2022 and also during the third wave of the COVID pandemic.
