Fewer containment zones in Delhi, count drops by 200

Aug 02, 2020 14:00 IST

The Delhi government on Saturday completed a 3-day review exercise and has now brought down the number of containment zones in the city from 715 to 496. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reviewed the capital's containment strategy implemented by the 11 district administrations. The drive involved the restructuring and subsequent de-scaling of containment zones to allow movement of more people to further boost the economy, said the Delhi government. The move aims to bring relief to as many as 241,888 people stranded in various containment zones. Under the Centre's new guidelines, a containment zone can be de-listed 14 days after the last Covid-19 patient in the area has recovered. Earlier the duration was 28 days.
