“Strict enforcement measures in containment zones should be continued as per GoI (Government of India’s) guidelines to prevent spread of COVID-19,” Baijal tweeted after the meeting.

Last month, he had directed all district magistrates to implement a “micro-containment zone strategy” in their respective areas to curb the spread of the virus. Under this plan, small clusters reporting cases of the infection are identified and declared containment zones, instead of big ones.
