On Monday, Delhi sealed all its borders for 1 week amidst rising worry from the surge in COVID-19 cases. The sealing orders came hours after Haryana opened Gurugram-Delhi border in line with the revised lockdown guidelines which were issued by the Central Government which made it very clear that non-essential inter-state travel of vehicles shall be allowed without e-passes or any special permits.

Uttar Pradesh’s Noida, which also shares a border with the national capital, sealed all its routes in April in an attempt to control the spread of the novel Coronavirus. On Sunday, however, the Noida administration confirmed that the borders will remain closed until further notice, claiming that 42% of the cases in the area were traced back to Delhi.

The three states were witnessing massive traffic jams, especially from the Delhi-Gurugram borders, with the irate commuters pointing that despite the orders passed by the Haryana Government, they were being asked to present their e-passes.
