The number of cases in Jharkhand, Odisha, for example, is not alarming. But the short span of time in which the states reported these numbers is alarming.

Though Maharashtra, Delhi, Tamil Nadu are still the top three states contributing to the COVID cases, according to experts, these states have brought the situation under control.

Here is what the Centre now advises:

1. Regular review of containment zones. Containment zones should not be static. Cases are being reported from outside the containment zones which implies that the concentration of the cases might have been shifting while the administration is focussing on the wrong containment zones.

2. House-to-house active case search in containment zones: When a case is reported from an area, that area is transformed into a containment zone. But what needs to be done is to check every house in that area instead of just tracing the infected person’s contacts.

3. The fatality rate should be kept low.

4. Mapping of the high-risk population should be done.

5. Elderly people and people with co-morbidities should be monitored.
