MORE THAN one-third of micro-containment zones out of a total of 268 in the city are from well-developed ward office areas of Aundh-Baner and Nagar Road-Vadgaonsheri. Housing societies are among the worst-hit during the ongoing second wave of Covid-19.

The PMC did not enforce any containment zone in January and February after cases started going down. It was decided that micro-containment zones will be reintroduced once cases started increasing in the last two months.

On April 1, 117 housing societies, 115 buildings and 36 localities were declared micro-containment zones.

Maximum zones are in Aundh-Baner ward office area at 56. It is followed by 40 each in Nagar Road-Vadgaonsheri and Hadapsar-Mundhwa ward offices.
