Four districts have been put under Green Zone category. District Pulwama is the only district from Kashmir division featuring in this category. From Jammu division, Kishtwar, Doda and Poonch districts are Green Zones.
However, Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Pandurang K Pole, said the entire 10 districts of Kashmir will be treated as red zones. .
We have only one green district which also has seen some new positive cases in past couple of days,” he said. He added that orange zones have “very little difference” from red zones and therefore entire Kashmir “will remain Red Zone.” .
We cannot lower our guard at this stage. We have decreasing percentage of positive cases among the total number of samples tested but we need to keep doing what needs to be done,” he said.
