The move came after two patients infected with COVID-19 recovered from disease.
Earlier on April 15, the district administration had lifted containment restrictions at Puruna Bazar in Bhadrak following recovery of a COVID-19 patient.
The district authorities had declared three places — Puruna Bazar, Charampa and Erein — as containment zones after three persons tested positive for COVID-19 in the town.
The first positive case in the district was detected from Puruna Bazar, where a 29-year-old youth with a travel history to Dubai was infected with the deadly virus. Thereafter, two more persons had tested positive in Charampa and Erein localities.
