Similar problem was also faced by health workers of Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) in the city.
At present there are 56 containment zones in Howrah including 19 in Howrah Municipal Corporation (HMC) area.
In a bid to identify a person suffering from COVID-19, stress was given on door-to-door visits to collect information whether any person is suffering from fever of COVID-19 like symptoms.
The health workers of the HMC are carrying out the door-to-door surveillance in the urban part of the district while ASHA workers carrying out the same in its ruralparts.
Necessary steps are being taken to carry out proper door-to-door surveillance in high rises as well.
