The people of the state are welcoming this decision of the government and they too feel that this will curb the cases of corona virus in the state. Most of the people believe that Delhi border is the main reason for increasing cases of infection in the state, many people from Delhi for their jobs or business purposes. Significantly, Corona virus has the highest number of corona cases in the capital.
