CHENNAI: The number of COVID-19 containment zones in Chennai has come down to 64, with six Corporation zones no longer featuring in the list.

They are Thiruvottriyur, Manali, Madhavaram, Valsaravakkam, Alandur and Adyar.

Tondiarpet has the most active containment zones with 24, while Kodambakkam has 15.

The Corporation’s health department officials said the removed containment zones did not have any case for 14 days and hence were taken off the list.
