Q. The Bhilwara model is recently seen in news is related to which of the following?

[A] CoVID-19 tackling

[B] Controlling locust attack

[C] Migrants mobilization

[D] Global Warming

Answer: A

The Bhilwara COVID-19 containment “model” refers to the steps taken by the administration in Rajasthan’s Bhilwara district to contain the disease, after it emerged as a hotspot for coronavirus positive cases. 

  • The measures taken by the Rajasthan government include imposing a curfew in the district which also barred essential services, extensive screening and house-to-house surveys to check for possible cases, and detailed contact tracing of each positive case so as to create a dossier on everybody they met ever since they got infected. 
  • The Bhilwara model (in Rajasthan) has become a successful example for the world to emulate in tackling the Covid-19 crisis because of the efforts of local bureaucracy.  
  • This earmarks the importance of the role of civil services in containing the spread of disease at community level.
