COMPLETE HOTSPOT LIST ACROSS INDIA

The main criteria of these hotspot districts are those from which more cases are being currently reported or where the rate of growth of cases is more i.e. that doubling rate of cases is less.

Districts were also told to classify hospitals as:

  • COVID Care Centres for mild cases or very mild cases,
  • COVID Health Centres for clinical moderate cases requiring oxygen support and
  • COVID Dedicated Hospitals for severe & critical cases with ventilator support.

Government of India is taking several steps for prevention, containment and management of COVID-19 through a collective effort with the States/UTs. These are being regularly reviewed and monitored at the highest level.

In order to break the chain of transmission, focus needs to be on contact tracing, monitoring and clinical management. States have been asked to uniformly implement the containment plan in every district across the country.

In case of any queries on COVID-19, call at Ministry of Health & Family Welfare helpline no. : +91-11-23978046 or 1075 (Toll-free). List of helpline numbers of States/UTs on COVID-19 is also available at https://www.mohfw.gov.in/pdf/coronvavirushelplinenumber.pdf .
