New Delhi, May 3 : With two more zones de-contained on Sunday, the total number of containment zones in Delhi stood at 94.
According to the Delhi government, the areas de-contained on Sunday were the Bengali Market in New Delhi and House No. 97 to 107 and House No. 120-127, Kailash Hills, East of Kailash in South East district.
“So far, seven areas have been de-contained and now the active containment zones in the city are 94,” an official statement said.
After an area is declared as a containment zone by the district administration, the Delhi government starts ‘Operation SHIELD’ — Sealing, Home Quarantine, Isolation and Tracking, Essential Supply, Local Sanitisation and Door-To-Door Checking — to control the spread of the virus.
While the areas are no more a containment zone, however, strict compliance of the lockdown has to be followed there.
The SHO concerned and the survey teams, as constituted by the District Administration, have to keep a strict vigil in the de-contained areas to make sure that there should be minimum movement of people as per directions issued by the government with regard to the lockdown.
The SDM will need to keep strict vigil in the area for the next 14 days from the date of de-containment.
Social distancing and masks are compulsory in the area even for the vendors, and hawkers.
On Sunday, Delhi announced several relaxations from Monday for the city, except the containment zones.
