With Corona infection cases rising rapidly, the regime is back on track again. Guidelines have been issued to the districts by preparing a complete outline, including the determination of the containment zone for serious monitoring. It has been decided that if a case is found in any area, 25 meters will be considered as the center of that patient's home, while a circumference of fifty meters will be declared as a containment zone if more than one is found infected. On Sunday, instructions were issued by Chief Secretary RK Tiwari regarding surveillance for the prevention of corona infection. It states that corona infection is on the rise again. It has now become necessary to closely monitor the infected patients, the people who come in contact with them. The district solvency officer will make the information of corona infected patients available daily to the district immunization officer. The District Immunization Officer will be the nodal officer for the activities of solvency in the Containment Zone.

Regarding the determination of the Containment Zone, it has been decided that a 25-meter circumference for each case will be considered as a center and a 50-meter circumference for more than one case will be made a Containment Zone. According to the present average population density of the state, there will be about 20 houses in a radius of 25 meters and about 60 houses in 50 meters. A team will be set up in two containment zones with one case each of Kovid. Assuming the cluster to be more than one case in an area, the point between the clusters will be marked as an epicenter and a circumference zone of 50 meters will be made.

Separate arrangement for multi-story buildings:  On finding an infected in a multi-story building, the floor on which the infected person is dwelling will be made. If more than one case is found, the concerned tower will be marked as a containment zone. In such a situation, the local administration can take necessary decisions as per the advice of the Chief Medical Officer.

This will be a system of monitoring

  • It will be compulsory to sample a potential patient identified in the Containment Zone within 24 hours.
  • Each team will have a total of three members from the health department, local bodies in urban areas, village development or panchayat raj in rural areas, and local administration.
  • Every team member will go door-to-door in their area. After marking the patients with symptoms like cough, cold, fever, difficulty in breathing, etc., they will take the name, full address, mobile number, and description of the symptoms of such patients.
  • A supervisor will be formed on each of the five teams, which will compile all the information after the work of the five teams under them and make it available to the District Solvency Officer. He will collect the information of the district and send it to the state headquarters.
  • In the past, if a casement zone is created after a case is found and one or more cases are found in the same area then it will be considered as a cluster.
  • The relevant zone will be the Containment Zone for 14 days from the date of taking the sample of the last positive case. After that, if the case is not found, the area will be removed from the list of containment zones.
