To deter the spread of coronavirus, the Health Department has declared 12 areas as micro-containment zones in Patiala. Of the 12 micro-containment zones, four are in Patiala city, three in Rajpura, two each in Samana and Nabha and one in Patran. Besides, the Raghu Majra area in Patiala city has been declared as a macro-containment zone.

Patiala Civil Surgeon Dr Harish Malhotra said around 25 to 30 households were cordoned off in each micro-containment zone. “The micro-containment zones have been earmarked as per the policy. We will conduct 100 per cent testing in these zones to prevent further spread of Covid-19,” Dr Malhotra added.

Meanwhile, a four-member committee, including a WHO official, visited the containment areas to oversee the situation and submitted its report to the Deputy Commissioner.
