The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation has declared 12 new micro containment zones on Monday. It has also removed six such zones from the earlier list. With this the number of micro containment zones in the city now stands at 195. Of the six zones that have been removed, two are in the south zone and north west zone each and one each in the north and south west zone.

Of the total 12 newly declared micro containment zones, three are in the north west zone and two each in south, south west, east and west zones. One such zone is in the central zone.

This is the ninth time a micro containment zone list is being put out in the month of July and the tenth 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.
