The containment zone will be marked and notified on micro level. The list of such areas will be shared with the Ministry for Health and Family Welfare. The medical teams will provide a list of covid positives to the relevant police stations on daily basis. The beat constables will keep a watch over such people and also visit once in three days to ensure that the infected person doesn’t leave home at all during the quarantine period. Directives will be issued for enforcing Section 144 in all containment zones.
