Full list of 170 COVID-19 hotspot districts: What if you are an inhabitant of one of these hotspots?
A total of 170 districts in 25 states was clearly described and showed as COVID-19 hotspots by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare on 16th April. 207 districts in 27 states will be classified non-hotspots. Joint Secretary (Ministry of Health) Lav Agarwal said that all the states have been informed to declare their districts as hotspots, non-hotspots and green zones, depending on the number of cases associated with the districts. Following are the classifications:
- Hotspots: districts with a higher number of cases,
- Non-hotspots: districts with a lesser number of cases, and
- Green zones: districts which have reported no cases.
♦Identification of Red Zones
- Red zone districts (hotspots) are those districts which are having a high growth rate of infections or reporting large numbers of cases. These districts require focused attention, so they are labelled red zones. These are the highest caseload districts contributing to more than 80 per cent of cases in India or highest caseload districts contributing to more than 80 per cent of cases for each state in India.
♦How will hotspots be managed?
- The Centre has said that in the hotspot districts having a large number of COVID-19 cases or those with fast growth of such cases, very strong containment measures will be implemented.
- According to the new guidelines issued by the Centre a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the extension of the nationwide lockdown till May 3, all the health services including AYUSH, hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, dispensaries, telemedicine facilities, chemists, pharmacies as well as all types of medicine shops, Jan Aushadhi Kendras and medical equipment shops, will remain functional.
Cluster containment strategies are going to be implemented in the hotspots. Cluster containment strategies would include:
- social distancing measures,
- geographic quarantine,
- testing all suspected cases,
- enhanced active surveillance,
- isolation of cases,
- quarantine of contacts, and
- risk communication to create awareness among the public on preventive public health measures.
The joint secretary said special teams will look for new cases and samples are going to be collected and tested as per sampling criteria and the movement of individuals won’t be allowed in containment zones apart from those related with essential services.
