Madurai, Mar 25: India on Wednesday reported 11th coronavirus death after a 54-year-old Tamil Nadu man passed away from the infection. The deceased passed away at a hospital in Madurai, said state health minister C Vijayabaskar.

The man reportedly had a medical history of prolonged illness with 'uncontrollable diabetes'.

"Despite our best efforts, the COVID-19 positive patient at MDU, Rajaji Hospital, passed away... he had a medical history of prolonged illness with steroid-dependent COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), uncontrolled diabetes with hypertension," Vijayabaskar said in a tweet.

This is the first fatality reported in Tamil Nadu due to the deadly coronavirus. According to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the total number of COVID-19 cases in Tamil Nadu rose to 18 on Tuesday after six more people, including three women, tested positive for coronavirus.

    These figures seem very unlikely, India has a far higher number of people infected with the carona virus and it is high time rigorous testing should take place and all suspects should be isolated immediately.

    A letter from Italy,
    peace for all,
    We live in Italy - Milan,
    I'm going to share with you and explain to you, "How is life here in Milan" during these difficult
    days and how do I think you should learn from the mistakes and their consequences that we live here.
    We are currently in quarantine. We don't take to the streets, the police are in constant motion and arrest anyone outside his home.
    Everything is closed! ... business, malls, stores, all streets without movement.
    Italy, the country of living life, is transformed from one moment to the next as if it were a dark country of war.
    People are confused, sad, anxious and helpless, and often do not understand how this reality was imposed on
    them and when this whole nightmare will end.
    The big mistake was that at the start of the first hit people continued to lead their lives as usual and took
    to the streets for work, entertainment and feeling like a vacation period, so gatherings with friends and banquets abound.
    Everyone was wrong and so were you!
    I beg you, be careful, this is neither a laugh nor a joke.
    Protect your loved ones, your parents, and your grandparents! The disease is dangerous for them.
    About 200 people die here every day, not because medicine in Milan is not good (it's one of the best in the world),
    but rather because there are no places for everyone!
    Doctors choose who will die!

    This is only because of the silliness of the citizens at the beginning, who decided
    to continue their lives as usual, regardless of the new situation!
    Please, learn from the mistakes, we are a small country that could end up with a great tragedy.
    Listen well now ,,,
    Don't go out into crowded places.
    Try not to eat in public places.
    Stay longer at home during this time!

    In Italy, the entire country is isolated, meaning 60 million people in quarantine !!
    This would have been prevented if people had heard the instructions from the beginning.

    "We have an invisible enemy
