The number of patients has exceeded 3,000 in Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. 

Uttar Pradesh’s Noida is among the areas worst-affected by the coronavirus but on Thursday night, social distancing went for a toss in Sector-88 here.

People in large numbers were seen buying vegetables and fruits here. According to Market Committee Secretary Santosh, several factories have re-opened in Noida because of which crowds have increased. 

The committee has said that now passes will be issued to people going to the vegetable market and only 100-150 people will be allowed entry.

Meanwhile, 23 labourers have run away from a quarantine centre in Chhattisgarh’s Dantewada. 

According to Dantewada Superintendent of Police Abhishek Pallav, the labourers had been kept at a boys’ hostel in Aranpur but they ran away from there. 

Worryingly, coronavirus patients are being found at a very fast pace in the third phase of the lockdown.

Around 14,000 new coronavirus patients have been found across the country in the past four days.
