More than 20 containment zones
More than 20 containment zones have been created so far to prevent the spread of corona infection within the district. From July 2 to July 7, there are 16 Corona positive cases in the district that came in contact with the nearest infected person, while there are more than 25 positive cases who have no travel history.
Whereas earlier, corona reports of people returning from other states like Maharashtra, Gujarat, Delhi, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, UP, etc. were coming positive.
Without travel history and close contact, challenges have increased. The easiest way to avoid corona is to follow social distance. Containment zones are being built where such cases are coming up. At the moment, all of us should follow the government guidelines.
