Delhi: 87 Containment Zones and how they differ from Hotspots

 

What is a COVID-19 hotspot?

Areas in districts where six or more people have tested positive for coronavirus are identified as “hotspots”. The areas are recognized based on the assessment of risk factors, probability of high degree of virus spread and whether people are taking the lockdown seriously.

 

What is a containment zone or area?

MOHFW defines the containment zone as a specific geographical area where positive cases of coronavirus are found. Strict movement restrictions are put in place in such areas to prevent further spread of the virus. The zones are conceived to map the local transmission of the disease and prevent the contagion from spreading.

 

What is the difference between a hot spot and a containment zone?

While a hotspot is converted into a containment zone, a containment zone need not always be a hotspot. The authorities declare some lanes or neighbourhoods as containment zone even if it has one case, but it is declared a hotspot particularly when more than 6 cases appear.

 

What are the punishments for the violators?

At first, the violators are warned. After the warning, the violator can be charged under sections of Disaster Management Act, 2005, Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897, and under the terms of IPC.

 

What’s prohibited:

  • Movement of individuals in and out of their homes is not allowed
  • Visiting grocery stores and pharmacies is also not allowed
  • Media not allowed in the area
  • Outlets like banks, ATMs, post offices will remain closed
  • For people engaged in essential services, going out of the house without a valid movement pass is prohibited
  • Walking in parks/ community areas is not allowed
  • Entering the sealed zone or gathering inside it
  • Exemptions given from 20 April will not be applicable in containment zones

 

What’s allowed:

  • Home delivery of essential items like groceries, medicines, and dairy products by government authorized delivery personnel only
  • Going to the hospital for medical emergencies 
  • Ambulances with special permission
  • Rigorous door-to-door monitoring
  • Sanitisation of the area
