This is the tenth time a micro containment zone list is being put out in the month of July and the eleventh such list in the last two months (June-July). Media reports said that the rise in micro containment zones was also because the AMC was not taking any chances and declaring an area as a containment zone even if it had three to four cases.
The AMC in a statement said it has also begun door-to-door surveillance in the newly declared micro containment zones and has begun taking samples of those who have displayed COVID-19 symptoms.
