New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Despite the rapidly increasing cases of coronavirus in Delhi, half of the 92 containment zones in the city could turn into the green or orange zone in the next 15 days as they have not reported a single COVID-19 case in the last 14 days, a senior Delhi government official was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.

The Delhi government started categorising the localities as containment zones from late March. Since then 126 areas were notified as containment zones. However, the number came down with time and according to the latest list shared by the Delhi government on Friday, there were 92 containment zones in the national capital.

According to the guidelines, a containment zone comprises of slums, gated community, apartment blocks or entire neighbourhoods. The containment zones were notified after 3 or more cases were reported from a locality. However, the Delhi government has earlier categorised localities reporting only one COVID-19 case.

The containment zones are completely quarantine zones and no one is allowed to enter or step out of their homes even for buying essential goods. All entry and exit points are closed and internal lanes were barricaded. In containment zones, the authorities undertake house to house surveys and identify potential case by carrying out contact tracing.  

The number of containment zones in Delhi have subsequently decreased. “Our analysis of the containment zones implies that the focused action taken by the administration in containment zones is paying off,” a senior government official said as quoted by Hindustan Times.

According to a report by Hindustan Times, 13 of the 45 containment zones that have not reported any new case for the past 14 days and are now classified as ‘orange’ containment zones are situated in South Delhi. If these 45 zones do not report any new case over the next two weeks more, about 2.5 lakh more people would be free to get back to their normal lives, the Hindustan Times report further stated.
