In a bid to contain the coronavirus spread in the Valley, the local administrations have come up with a new strategy.

Under this strategy, as many as 13 persons with a contact history with an infected person will be tested for coronavirus infection. At present, there are almost 3,500 infection cases in the Valley. So, the local authorities will conduct PCR tests for around 45,000 people in the coming week.

A team of health experts has already started the contact tracing of people who came in contact with the COVID-19 patients.
