Containment clusters back in old city

Tue 14 Jul 2020, 11:36:49
The decision to reintroduce the concept of containment clusters was reportedly taken following an increase in Covid-19 cases in certain pockets of the old city. The containment clusters are mainly seen in Sultan Shahi, Moghalpura, Lal Darwaza and Shahalibanda areas of the old city.

Ashok Samrath, Zonal Commissioner (South) GHMC said wherever there was a high concentration of Covid-19 cases, they were barricading the area and marking it as a cluster zone.

“Around 20 cluster zones have come up in the South Zone in the last four days,” he said, adding that the GHMC had previously been only barricading the houses where there were cases.

“Now we are identifying lanes or neighbourhoods with multiple cases and then declaring the area as a cluster. Our teams are later barricading the area to ensure that the people stay inside the houses. We are also taking up disinfecting works,” the official said.

At Moghalpura, on the Ishrath function hall road, the bamboo barricade was removed by the people to facilitate the movement of the vehicles. “A few persons removed a part of the barricade to make way for their motorcycles. Authorities should use barricades that cannot be easily removed,” suggested  a local resident.
