Yesterday night, it was speculated that politician and producer Jayaraman Anbazhagan had passed away after being affected by Corona Virus. The DMK MLA has been kept on ventilator support after testing Covid-19 positive earlier this week. Anbazhagan is admitted to Reela Institute and Medical Centre located in Chrompet, Chennai and has been relying on 80 per cent of oxygen through the ventilator. Late-night yesterday, it was reported by a section of media that J Anbazhagan might have died and the party is waiting for the right time to announce the death. However, all those speculations are mere rumours and as a confirmation, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu CM Edappadi Palaniswami called Reela Institute an hour ago to enquire about the health of Corona affected DMK MLA J Anbazhagan.
