New Delhi, April 8 (IANS) As Faridabad in the National Capital Region has emerged as a hotspot for coronavirus with 28 cases surfacing in the area, taking Haryana's tally to 141, the authorities have geared up to fight the Covid-19 outbreak.
The authorities have identified 13 affected areas in the Faridabad district, marking them as "containment zones".
"Containment zones are different from lockdown as there are further stricter restrictions on movement of people. All essential items in these areas are supplied at the doorsteps of people by the vendors or authorities in order to limit movement," said Yashpal Yadav, District Collector, Faridabad.
He added that each and every household in the whole district is being scanned and anyone found even with the smallest of symptoms are being identified and notices are being sent to such houses, placing them on home quarantine.
"The whole exercise is being carried out by the government officials with the assistance of civil volunteers. Each person is being given 50 houses for scanning," the DC said.
Yadav, however, has ensured that these restrictions are in place for a limited period only. "These restrictions are for limited periods. We are in total control of the situation and there should not be any fear in the minds of the public.
"We are ensuring that basic necessities are available with every house. The government is distributing more than 30,000 food packets twice a day to meet the food needs of the people," he said.
"Apart from cooked food, we are also distributing dry ration along with other Public Distribution System (PDS) schemes which are already in place," Yadav said.
Yadav also informed that regular assistance in the form of funds, food and supplies is being given by the government to all the persons who are in need.
"If the people follow these restrictions and lockdown instructions wisely, we can beat the tough times faster and earlier," he said.
