Samples were taken from the residents after three people were found positive. When the results came, 20 more were found positive, district health department officer J Prakash told ANI.

The apartment complex is in Gurgaon's Sector 67. "First, three cases were reported, after which a testing camp was set up. Some 20 people turned out positive, so we declared it as a containment zone. More tests are being conducted," Mr Prakash said, ANI reported.
