A sudden hike in the number of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases has led the West Bengal government impose fresh lockdown in the containment and buffer zones of the state. Without going into the details of the containment and buffer zones, the state government has been identifying these as “affected areas” that will come under the lockdown rules.
