Hyderabad: Amid rise in coronavirus cases in Hyderabad, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) started designating areas as containment zones.

The authorities are sealing the area if more than four cases are diagnosed in 50 meter radius.

However, designating an area as a “containment zone” is proving ineffective as people are seen moving freely without any restrictions.

Residents of Banjara Hills Road Number 12 and Bharat Nagar, Moosapet are seen going to office and other work by removing barricades.

In Old City too, barricades and board of containment zone are place, however, people are seen moving without any restrictions.

Talking to media, a GHMC Special Officer said that police monitors entry and exit of the containment clusters.  

It seems that there is a lack of coordination between the Health Ministry, GHMC and Police.

Despite rise in coronavirus cases in Hyderabad, people are moving freely without taking necessary precautions.
