The decision to seal the border came after Ghaziabad witnessed an increase of 10 cases of Covid-19 recently.
The district administration issued an order saying, “In Ghaziabad district, there is an increase in the number of coronavirus cases in the last few days. A large chunk of these cases is linked to those who travel between Delhi and Ghaziabad. Hence, on the recommendations of the chief medical officer, the district administration has decided to seal the Delhi-Ghaziabad border until further orders.”
