Odisha’s Bhadrak Move Back To COVID Zone, Indicate Local Transmission

Odisha’s Bhadrak slips back to COVID zone, signals local transmission

Among 25 districts in country the Union Health Ministry had remembered for COVID example of overcoming adversity for not revealing new case in most recent 14 days, Bhadrak and Vizag rise as odd places out in only 36 hours. 

In contrast to nine different states, Odisha apparently has lost an opportunity to script a COVID-19 example of overcoming adversity. Within 36 hours subsequent to joining the desired list of 25 districts nationally, Odisha's Bhadrak with 5 new cases reappeared on the COVID map, only to join the list of slip-back districts. 

Nonetheless, Bhadrak is not the lone district to figure in the slip-archive, Vishakapatnam has additionally reported a new case today. 

A look at the 25 districts declared by Center on Friday shows that none, with the exception of two districts (Bhadrak and Vizag), have reported any new Covid-19 case till date. 

While discharging the list of 25 districts in the country, Union Health Ministry accentuated on the way that overwhelming bunch containment plan in COVID hit places has yielded results, for which, an aggregate of 25 districts, remembering two for Odisha, didn't report any new COVID-19 positive case during the last fortnight. 

The first COVID case in Bhadrak district had been reported from Purana Bazar locality of Bhadrak town. The district administration forced containment zone right away. Afterward, two other positive COVID-19 cases were identified. And containment zone restrictions were braced at Charampa and Erein area in the town to break the transmission pattern of the coronavirus. 

While the district administration originally lifted containment zone restrictions from Purana bazar area on April 15, the containment zone 2 at Charampa and Erien was lifted only on Sunday. 

And hours after the fact, two squares neighboring the Bhadrak municipality area, Basudevpur and Bhandaripokhari, reported 5 new COVID-19 cases.

The detection of new cases in the squares neighboring the Bhadrak municipality area puts a question mark on the viability of containment plan in Odisha. 

Also, according to the status report of new positives discharged by the State health department, "contact tracing is on". Since, starting at now, the State health department is yet show any of the new cases having contact with the prior three positives, a specific surmising can be drawn here, which as far as possible alludes to local transmission of COVID-19 is on in the district.
