Orange Zones: The districts with fewer cases have been marked as orange zones or non-hotspots.

Green Zones: The Districts with no new COVID-19 infection has been categorised as green zones. 

Note: A red or orange zone can be marked as green if it does not report any new COVID-19 case for 28 and 14 days respectively.

What are Coronavirus hotspots?

Hotspots are areas that have reported a comparatively higher number of confirmed coronavirus cases. The people detected positive may not be family members, increasing the possibility of community transmission of coronavirus in such areas. To prevent the same, the governments have identified and sealed off such areas to stop people from stepping out at all. Containment zones have been created to prevent exposure to deadly infection. In Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, the areas with more than 6 positive cases have been declared as hotspot areas and will be subjected to a harsh lockdown.

Background

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced lockdown extension till May 3, 2020 to further boost efforts to curb COVID-19 spread. The states have been issued directions to use this lockdown period to curb the spread of the coronavirus. As per latest reports, some states/ UTs including Maharashtra, Delhi, Meghalaya, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal and Punjab may extend their lockdown by two more weeks, beyond May 3rd.

No Evidence of Community Transmission

The Union Health Ministry has reiterated that there is no evidence of community transmission of the disease in the nation. All COVID-19 hotspot areas are being sealed off and turned into containment zones. All movement of people in such areas have been restricted except for essential services and door-to-door health checking is being undertaken to identify those with mild symptoms or the asymptomatic cases. The entire hotspot areas are being santinised as well.

Tracing and identification of hotspot areas is followed by isolation of those with symptoms and then testing and treatment if they turn out to be positive. This way, the government will have a better chance of controlling the spread of COVID-19 pandemic. The centre has asked the states to focus on converting the red zones or hotspot areas to orange and then green zones.
