Centre flags 145 districts as potential Covid-19 hotspots

May 30, 2020 13:53 IST

The central government has identified 145 new districts, mostly rural, that have reported Covid-19 infections over the past three weeks, the Hindustan Times has reported. It has warned that these districts could emerge as “epicentres” of the disease if effective containment measures are not undertaken. In a presentation to representatives of states on Thursday, cabinet secretary Rajiv Gauba highlighted that eastern India was likely to be the next big Covid-19 hotspot with the return of migrant workers from the worst-hit states. The cabinet secretary said 12 states, including Bihar, West Bengal and Odisha in eastern India which had not reported many cases earlier, have witnessed rapid infection spread in the three weeks until May 25.
