The spike in numbers keeps rising in the city with 619 cases registered in last one week. It is worrying for all age groups especially senior citizens as infection appeared from every place in the district. The total cases have now reached 903, more than 2.5 times higher than Faridabad with 392. A of total 265 cases emerged in Haryana on Monday.

Official believes that interstate movement between Delhi and Gurugram has been responsible for the spike. The Haryana government has sealed the borders with Delhi, but still a large number of people sneak through.

On Monday morning, there was some strictness on the borders as police checked vehicles. Though, it was not the case throughout the day as commuters easily crossed the border in the afternoon between 12 to 4 pm.
