The Apollo hospitals family, the clinicians, the nursing and the paramedical staff, have tried hard to provide the best standards of care and had worked tirelessly using our clinical and technological resources at our best with the healing spirit and compassion which will inspires us always.

On Monday the whole day, Tamil Nadu was waiting for any word on her health status from Apollo Hospital. Later when Jaya TV, broadcaster of ruling AIADMK and some other Tamil networks reported that the CM had passed away, the emotions ran high and confusion prevailed across the state in the afternoon, around 5.30 pm.

As the people started wept, the police fought back crowds surging towards the hospital. The party flag of AIADMK at headquarters in Royapettah was immediately lowered to half-mast. But later when the Apollo Hospitals said that she was still alive, her condition critical, the flag had later raised to full-mast.

Later within hours, the road from Apollo to her house was ringed by security personnel and police fanned out across the city preparing for her last journey back home.
