The Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border at Ghaziabad will be sealed once again in view of the sudden spike in coronavirus cases. On Sunday, 10 people tested positive in the district, which earlier was among the areas worst affected by the virus in the state. There have been 227 cases of coronavirus in Ghaziabad, of which 33 are active cases. Delhi recorded 635 fresh cases of COVID-19 on Monday, taking the tally to 14,053 with 276 deaths so far in the national capital. The number of active patients of COVID-19 was 7,006 while 6,771 patients have either recovered or gone to other places, according to the Delhi government's daily health bulletin. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that any state government which wants to employ migrant workers from his state will have to seek permission first. He did not elaborate on how UP planned to ensure that permission was taken or how it would monitor the movement of lakhs of migrant workers once the lockdown is lifted and economic activity restarts. The SC said today that Special international flights to repatriate Indians must have middle seats vacant. The top court said it was "common sense" that social distancing is important as a precaution against coronavirus.
