Panvel City Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has taken off Kamothe from the list of 139 containment zones. Till Wednesday, Kamothe had reported 163 Covid cases.

Municipal commissioner Sudhakar Deshmukh said, “We surveyed the PCMC area and demarcated new containment zones. Only those buildings, societies or areas which have case will be sealed. Only if a sector has many cases, then it will be a containment zone.”

Kamothe has got 50 smaller containment zones. “Economic activity with curbs will start in areas which are not containment zones,” said Deshmukh.

For the past few days, there has been a decrease in cases and Tuesday saw only two positive cases from Kamothe.

Kamothe has reported 163 positive cases and eight deaths.
