“We are receiving frequent cases in Gurugram. It is a concern for us. We are working hard to contain spread in limited places”, said Dr Jaswant Singh Punia, civil surgeon of Gurugram.
Reports have claimed that a majority of residential societies and condominiums have positive cases. Areas like Dundahera, DLF phase 3 Nathupur, Sirhaul, Mollahera, sector 10A, Devilal colony are badly-affected. Following this, the administration in Gurugram has decided to build temporary quarantine centres in the residential societies and upscale condomimums.
