COVID-19: Over 400 placed under quarantine in Sisauli in UP

Muzaffarnagar, Apr 10 () Over 400 people have been placed under quarantine in their homes in the Sisauli area of the district after they attended the 'Teravih' (13th day) of a deceased where the husband of a coronavirus positive woman was also present, officials said on Friday.

The district authorities have put up quarantine notices outside the residences of over 400 people, including Bharatiya Kisan Union president Naresh Tikait, asking them to stay indoors.
