KOLKATA: The authorities in Salt Lake and New Town are planning to conduct rapid antigen tests for residents living adjacent to micro-containment zones and at places where multiple Covid cases are being reported. From only about 20-25 daily cases even till early last week, over 200 new cases are getting reported daily from these areas now.
Three more micro-containment zones – one each HA, IB and BF blocks – were demarcated in Salt Lake on Tuesday, taking the tally in the township to nine. The other six micro C-zones are in FD Block (two), one each in GD Block and CB Block and two in AK Block. In New Town, one flat each at Uniworld City, Akanksha cooperative society and Sapoorji housing complex have been demarcated as micro-containment zones.
There was some confusion over a micro C-zone that was previously demarcated in Salt Lake’s CD Block. TOI on Tuesday visited the spot and found that nobody in the four to five houses as listed were presently affected by Covid or was affected within the last few weeks. The authorities said the matter was being rectified.
New Town Kolkata Development Authority (NKDA) officials said they were planning to send mobile rapid antigen test teams at places where multiple cases are getting reported to check whether others living in the area are getting infected. Also, they are keeping ambulances ready for.
NKDA will hold an online meeting with residents’ welfare associations and NGOs in New Town to urge them to take up Covid measures. A few gated communities in New Town have already taken safety steps. “We are introducing no-mask-no-entry rule along with thermal scanning, keeping PPE kits and oxygen concentrators ready,” he said.
