Gurugram society declared containment zone after 20 test positive for Covid

After almost a gap of two months, Gurugram has gone ahead with cluster containment after 20 residents of a posh condominium tested positive for coronavirus.

According to residents, around seven people contracted the infection after a group of 22-25 attended the party on February 7. Soon 12 others also tested positive.

The party was hosted on February 7 and the first case was detected on February 19,” chief medical officer (CMO) Virender Yadav said.

The health department has collected more than 700 samples so far and are conducting contact tracing.

Covid restrictions have been imposed in society mandating strict social distancing and suspension of the majority of outdoor activities or gathering.

However, health authorities are yet to confirm the development.

It is suspected that the contagion spread after a birthday party hosted by a resident at a restaurant.
