15 UP districts to be sealed from midnight; corona hotspots to remain out of bounds for all


A complete sealing affecting as many as 15 districts will be observed in Uttar Pradesh starting midnight of today. The government has said that the lockdown will be total in areas where corona positive cases had been found or which are corona hotspots—which means that nobody will be able to venture out and essential services will be available at the doorstep. The 15 districts are Ghaziabad, Noida, Shamli, Kanpur, Varanasi, Maharajganj, Lucknow, Basti, Bulandshahar, Kanpur, Sitapur, Saharanpur, Agra, Firozabad and Bareilly.

People living in hotspots can order online delivery of grocery, milk and medicines for which a call centre will be set up.
