Out of 18 active cases, 10 are from Dandu Bazaar area in Maharanipeta.
Previously the cases started coming into light with an old woman getting affected and later on her family contracting the virus.
This is the first case, where even neighbours got affected and not just the family members.
Only in that area about 40,000 residents dwell in. In the previous cases it was just people getting affected within a family or close contact.
As of now there is only one entry and exit point been made in that area and people are being tested, results will be coming out on May 6.
People are asked to stay at home and not mingle as the virus can spread even with a single interaction.
