The border between Delhi and Ghaziabad has been sealed as a measure to contain the spread of coronavirus.

The said order is being issued under the National Disaster Act 2005, he added.

Traffic movement between Delhi-Ghaziabad is completely prohibited, only those rendering essential services and people holding valid passes are being allowed.

Long queues of vehicles were seen at the Delhi-Ghaziabad border on Tuesday morning.
