The number of active cases in the state has gone up from 100 on April 30 to 345 on May 22.
Commenting on the spurt in Covid-19 cases in the NCR, Health Minister Anil Vij said the people living in districts which are closer to Delhi have also been affected. There are a total of 12,319 corona virus cases in the national capital, according to authorities.
Haryana has maintained that several cases reported from Sonipat, Jhajjar, Gurgaon, Faridabad and even Panipat have their origins in infections emanating from the national capital, following which authorities had put strict regulation on borders with Delhi to check the spread of infection.
Though, the essential services and movement of doctors, paramedical staff and some others as per orders of the Delhi High Court have been allowed.
"We had to put strict regulations on our borders with Delhi to check the spread of infection. We have nothing against the people of Delhi, but we have to protect our own people too," Vij said.
