Gurugram : The administration on Tuesday divided the district into seven zones in a bid to tackle the rising cases of coronavirus disease (Covid-19). With Covid-19 cases crossing 1,000 on Tuesday, senior officials said that dividing the district into separate zones would streamline the process of handling new coronavirus cases.

“The district has been divided into seven zones, including five zones in Gurugram city and two in Sohna and Pataudi blocks. Each zone will have several containment areas where Covid-19 cases have been detected. District administration and health department officials have been designated as nodal officers to look after the management of each of these seven zones,” said Amit Khatri, deputy commissioner. Currently, there are 63 containment zones in the district.

Under the administration’s new plan, a separate control room would be set up at the civil surgeon’s office from where data on Covid-19 positive cases will be shared with the nodal officers of each new zones.

Dr Asruddin, director, health services (training), who has been deputed to monitor the situation in Gurugram and Faridabad for a week, said, “At the control room level, the positive cases will be segregated based on the new zones and the containment areas in these zones. The nodal officer will coordinate with the health team of the Urban Primary Health Centre (PHC) or Community Health Centre (CHC) of the respective area to reach to the affected patient at the earliest.”

Acknowledging that the cases will continue to surge in the city, Rajeev Arora, additional chief secretary, health department, said, “A majority of the cases are asymptomatic and do not require immediate critical care. We have already started self-paid and government-paid isolation facilities in different hotels in the city and many asymptomatic patients are getting admitted there.”
