Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has given orders for the lockdown in Agra, Meerut, and Kanpur to be made stricter since the three districts are said to be among the worst-hit in the state as COVID-19 cases rose to 3,392.

The decision has been made after there was a sudden rise in COVID-19 cases, following the violation of lockdown rules to a certain extent in the districts over the past few days. Yogi Adityanath has also told officials to implement the lockdown more strictly. However, revised regulations are yet to be released.

“The medical check-up of all migrants workers must be done,” Adityanath said as over 70,000 migrant workers have returned to Uttar Pradesh in 57 trains. It is also said that about 3,00,000 people are expected to return in the coming days.

Adityanath has put forward the need to improve doorstep delivery and increase quarantine centres in the state.
