Noida: The borders of Delhi and Gautam Budh Nagar, which lies in Uttar Pradesh has been strictly sealed to cater restricting the spread of Covid-19. Police has stomped barricades all over the borders.
The District Magistrate has ordered to seal the borders as it is feared that the people who travel from Delhi to Gautam Budh Nagar might carry the virus from Delhi. People are repulsive because there are thousands of emergency workers who work in Delhi but reside in Noida.
Only essential service providers are allowed to go, however, currently even they are restricted. This has invited traffic jam stretched in kilometres. This was an unexpected closure.
However, this wasn’t a decision that was taken randomly. Many people who travel from Noida to Delhi and back have been tested positive for Corona.
Emergency service providers will be given an e-pass to commute.
Noida, in itself has been reported to have 100 Corona cases till date. There are more than 33 hotspots of coronavirus in Gautam Budh Nagar.
