Containment zones in Mumbai come down by 189 – Times of India

As many as 189 of the 930 containment zones in the city have got off the list for tight lockdown till April 22 after they completed 14 days without a new infection since a Covid-19 case was found. Over 300 pockets still continue in the strictest red zone.
A containment zone is where a Covid-19 patient and his contacts live. “During the 14-day quarantine, we monitor if there are any new Covid-19 patients from the area. Only if there is no new case, a decision is taken at the ward level to release the area. If patients increase, another 14-day quarantine is accounted for,” said a senior ward level official.
Some of the areas released include buildings on Ridge road in Malabar Hill, Arab Lane, Grant road, Forjett Street, Antop Hill-Wadala, Hiranandani in Powai, IC Colony in Borivli and chawls in Parel, Sewri, Kanamwar Nagar in Vikrohli, and Lalbaug.
