The administration failed to control the situation, as the migrants ignored the social distancing norms and were standing close to each other.
Risk factors arose, even more, when a positive case was seen within 500 meters of that area on the Aarogya Sethu app.
Uttar Pradesh currently has 4259 COVID-19 cases, 256 Shramik special trains given NOC for the return of migrants to the state.
