'Bhilwara Model' likely to get coronavirus out from India: All we know about it
New Delhi : Coronavirus is expanding its wings in the nation and with the lockdown end date nearing, it is likely that 'Bhilwara model' is likely to be implemented in the nation to break the chain of spreading coronavirus in the nation.
What is Bhilwara Model and how it was implemented?
After six people were found coronavirus positive in Bhilwara (Rajasthan) on March 19, the alerted authorities started looking for ways to combat the situation. Collector Rajendra Bhatt did not wait for approval from the authorities and implemented curfew in the region.
The very next day all borders were sealed around the district. Post that, the authorities geared themselves up for screening everyone in the place; around 6000 teams of doctors were placed for the task. Around 24 lakh people were screened by these teams in mere 9000 days. Around 18000 people were found to be having cough and cold, they have been moved to the second phase of testing.
Bhilwara Model implemented in Agra as well!
On the lines of Bhilwara, Agra official Prabhu N Singh also implemented strict rules in the region, with a 14-day jail term to those found roaming without a reason. A case would be filed against those under the Indian Penal Code 188.
