Day by day Covid-19 cases are increasing in Ahmedabad city, highest in Gujarat state.
Amdavad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has yet not redrawn its zones despite more cases having been reported from the western parts of the city.
The active cases tally of the 10 existing containment zones on Wednesday was Khadia (339), Asarwa (213), Dariyapur (51), Jamalpur (341), Shahpur (220), Saraspur-Rakhiyal (234), Gomtipur (160), Danilimda (116), Behrampura (186) and Maninagar (243). However, the number of active cases in the existing containment zones are far lesser than non-containment zones.
Among the 38 non-containment zones out of the total 48 wards in the city, eight have a high number of active cases. These include Naroda (200), Vatva (150), Odhav (123), Amraiwadi (183), Navrangpura (123), Shahibaug (125), Vejalpur (111) and Nikol (104). Despite this, none of these wards have been contained and the number of red zones in the city remains ten.
For instance, Dariyapur in the central zone with only 51 active cases remains under containment, while Kubernagar in the north zone with 254 cases remains outside the red zone. As of Wednesday, Danilimda ward in the south zone has 116 active cases and is among the ten red zones. On the other hand, Naroda has 200 cases and has still not been declared as a containment ward.
