Chandigarh, April 30

To prevent further spread of coronavirus, the UT Administration today declared 15 more micro-containment zones in the city.

District Magistrate Mandip Singh Brar stated that the issue of Covid-19 outbreak was further studied and examined by a committee and a considered view emerged that the affected areas be declared as micro-containment zones.

He, however, said regular screening and monitoring of the areas would continue. Frequent sanitisation of the areas would be conducted and residents were advised to strictly maintain social distancing, wear masks and follow hand hygiene.

As many as 33 micro-containment zones were declared in the city on April 29.

The affected areas declared as micro-containment zones are part of Sectors 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 25, Sarangpur, Khuda Lahora, and Dhanas villages. — TNS
