Hyderabad: In wake of the huge surge of COVID-19 cases across city, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has again set up as many as 63 containment zones across 30 circles.
According to sources, the mini containment zones are being set up if there are more than five positive cases reported in a locality. To contain the spread of virus, the GHMC authorities are planning to form clusters by allowing the sanitation and medical persons.
The Disaster Response Force (DRF) teams of the GHMC are concentrating on sanitation with sodium hypochlorite in densely populated areas of twin cities. GHMC Commissioner Lokesh Kumar directed the authorities to strictly enforce the containment zones.
Though night curfew has been imposed in Telangana, the GHMC too has swung into action and started notifying the mini containment zones as a measure to curb the spread of COVID-19. Over the last few days, the state has been reporting between 5000 to 6000 new cases.
