Delhi seals borders for a week as corona cases shoot up
Delhi cannot close its borders for long because it is the national Capital, said Kejriwal. Therefore, he seeks suggestions from the people to take a final call on extending the border closure beyond the one week now ordered.

NEW DELHI, June 2: The Delhi Government has sealed the Capital's borders with neighbouring Haryana and Uttar Pradesh for a week till June 8 to check the rise in the cases of coronavirus in the Capital.

Announcing the decision on Monday, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal sought suggestions from the people to decide if the border closure should continue beyond June 8.

Anyway, the borders at Noida, Ghaziabad and Gurugram are already closed by Uttar Pradesh and Haryana, Delhi's neighbouring States.

"Covid-19 positive cases are rising in Delhi, which is a matter of worry but there is no need to panic. I say this because the AAP Government has invested a lot in developing the healthcare infrastructure of Delhi in the last five years," he said.

The Chief Minister said, "As soon as we open the borders, people from across the country will come to Delhi for better treatment. We have a capacity of 9,500 beds for coronavirus treatment in Delhi hospitals as against 2,300 patients today, but all the beds will be occupied in just 2-3 days if we have an influx of patients from across the country. What should we do? Should Delhi borders be opened."

How to cross the border::

  • Essential service providers with e-pass will be allowed entry
  • Those going to airports and railway stations can show the tickets
  • Non-residents must procure e-pass from the authorities/DM of the State concerned
  • Government employees must carry i-cards
  • Those for non-essential work also can seek entry with e-passes.

Patients from outside are overwhelming the health infrastructure in Delhi, especially because treatment is cheaper and better in Delhi, the Chief Minister said. This movement of people becomes all the more risky in view of the coronavirus epidemic. The cases are increasing in Delhi now unlike earlier.

However, Kejriwal said Delhi being the Capital cannot afford to block free movement any Indian citizen. Therefore, he said, the border sealing will be for a week and the people of Delhi should decide whether to continue the restrictions or not. For that he appealed to the Delhi citizens to file their suggestions so as to facilitate a final decision.

Earlier, last week, the Haryana Government had closed its borders with the Capital on the argument that coronavirus cases are on the rise in the State because a large number of people are commuting between Delhi and Haryana. Uttar Pradesh had closed its borders with Delhi last week.
