Coronavirus cases have been increasing in districts sharing a border with the national capital, Anil Vij said in an order. “The main reason behind the spike in cases is the entry of people from Delhi into areas of Haryana which share its border with Delhi,” he said.
Just two weeks ago, the Delhi High Court had to reconcile and order Haryana to allow those involved in essential services to travel between the state and the capital and remove special restrictions on its borders imposed during the nationwide COVID-19 lockdown.
The Haryana government has issued orders to completely seal all borders with Delhi except for essential services, state Home Minister Anil Vij said on Thursday, over concerns of coronavirus spreading with people travelling from the national capital.
The Haryana government gave a promise assuring that those essential service workers including doctors, nurses, officials of police, courts and municipal bodies, will be allowed between Delhi and Haryana on producing e-passes.
