Haryana closes borders blaming Delhi for its Covid19 cases

Agency News

The measures came as Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij said many who work in Delhi and stay in Haryana have become "corona-carriers".

Haryana will tighten its borders with Delhi, clamping down on travel to its satellite cities of Gurgaon and Faridabad, after a number of recent coronavirus cases were traced to the national capital, authorities said. At least two other borders - Sonipat and Jhajjar - were sealed earlier amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

Those travelling between the cities will need passes from the government starting Tuesday. Even health care workers, media employees and those providing essential services will need the passes, authorities said.

"So far we have only sealed Sonipat and Jhajjar borders with Delhi. Gurgaon and Faridabad borders have been tightened but not sealed yet," Haryana police chief Manoj Yadava said.

The measures came as Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij said many who work in Delhi and stay in Haryana have become "corona-carriers".
