Delhi Police on March 29 blocked the roads going towards Anand Vihar and nearby locations as a precautionary measure to avoid COVID-19 spread. On March 28, daily wage workers thronged the Anand Vihar Bus depot to board the buses to their respective cities/villages. Post Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's request and announcement of the arrangements, the daily wage workers gathered at the depot in huge numbers. Because of which, social distancing and all precautionary measures for COVID-19 went for a toss.
