Due to this, on the recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer, District Magistrate Ajay Shankar Pandey has decided to seal the Delhi border. The movement in Delhi has been banned from today with some relaxations.
District Magistrate Ajay Shankar Pandey said that there has been an increase in coronavirus positive cases in the district in the last few days. A large proportion of these increased cases are related to those traveling between Ghaziabad-Delhi.
