Hyderabad: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) have dismantled all COVID-19 Containment Zones in Old City which affectively means that not only primary and secondary contacts of COVID-19 patient “should take of themselves.” The COVID-19 positive patients should too as the GHMC Commissioner on Wednesday asked the Corona patients can stay at home.

The municipal corporation earlier claimed there are more than 1,100 containment zones in GHMC limits. Now the corporation has removed all the Containment Zones in South Zone (Charminar) despite its 567 active cases. It is currently maintaining 516 house clusters in the city. The Containment Zones have now been changed to house clusters. Wherever the positive cases are being reported that particular house is being declared as a ‘house cluster.’
