BMC has marked out 381 containment zones to prevent COVID-19 transmission. The van covers 3 to 5 areas of Mumbai between 10 am to 6 pm. Residents of Dhiraj Gaurav Heights Mumbai in Andheri West are facing trouble in getting cash to pay for their daily requirements. After one COVID-19 positive case was traced in the society, the area was declared as a containment zone to prevent residents from coming out.
