New Delhi: While the national capital's tally of coronavirus cases has crossed the 11,000 mark, the posh South District of the capital city has given a tough fight to the deadly virus. The densely populated district, which was feared to become the biggest hub of cases, turned its fate with rigorous efforts in contact tracing and establishing coordination with the residents. Out of 14 containment zones, which were initially created after a herd of cases appeared, more than half of these zones have now been de-contained and scaled down. BM Mishra, District Magistrate, South, said, "The containment was done on the basis of the spread of the virus. We had created 14 containment zones, out of which we have now scaled down more than half of these zones." Responding to how the rapid spreading of this virus has been controlled swiftly, he said that proper perimeter control of the containment zone was maintained. "We made sure that entry and exit points are sealed and ensured that no one enters or exits without proper scrutiny," he said. (IANS)
