When the lockdown first began people were allowed out of their homes, but restrictions soon tightened.
In some areas, this was limited to outings of just one member of a family every two days in order to buy necessities.
Others barred residents from leaving, obligating them to order food and other supplies from couriers.
When the policy later stepped up again, officials visited homes door to door to undertake health checks and force ill persons into isolation.
A disabled boy reportedly died after he was left without food, water or help when his father and brother were quarantined leaving him without proper care.
