Thereby, to implement cluster isolation and in turn prevent community spread. Similarly, in this regard, the health minister is examining the recorded data and tracing the clusters of COVID 19.
The Cluster Containment Strategy- Cluster Hotspots
This severe and laborious formula is the necessity of the hour. Accordingly, the administration identifies the most emergent hotspots and introduces restrictive quarantine rules. Subsequently, it includes delineation of the area with around 3-kilometer radius. Further, a buffer region of 5- kilometers. Subsequently, highlighting to follow the rigid quarantine rules here.

Highly Vigilant Hotspot Containment Act
