Risala Bazar is now fourth hotspot in Secunderabad Cantonment Board | Hyderabad News

SECUNDERABAD: A steep surge in the Covid-19 cases coupled with increasing containment clusters in Secunderabad Cantonment Board (SCB) are leaving the officials worried.
Two days after four coronavirus positive cases were identified in Karkhana, a housewife in Gummadi Rajareddy Colony of Risala Bazar contracted the virus on Wednesday. The officials swung into action, sanitised the entire area, erected barricades and declared it as a new hotspot in the SCB. Risala Bazar has now joined Laxminagar (Picket), Karkhana and Mahendra Hills as containment areas in the cantonment. SCB officials have shifted the woman to Gandhi Hospital and are busy tracing her contacts.
“We have shifted the woman to Gandhi Hospital for quarantine. A detailed survey is being conducted by the District Medical and Health Department at 75 houses in Gummadi Rajareddy Colony to identify the woman’s contacts. Every bylane in the colony is being sanitised and sprinkled with DDT powder. A special team to distribute groceries and medicines to needy people has been deployed in this area,” SCB senior superintendent (SWM), M Devender told TOI.
After positive cases in Karkhana, the residents of the P&T Colony had closed seven of the eight entry points. Even Vikrampuri Colony, which is opposite to P&T Colony, has also shut most of their roads after the fresh scare. Meanwhile, three out of four members of a family were discharged after they were found negative for the virus.
