Coronavirus Live Updates: COVID-19 Cases Cross 3,500 Mark In India, Boris Johnson Admitted To Hospital For Tests

Coronavirus cases: 83 deaths have been linked to COVID-19 virus and 275 people have been discharged

New Delhi:

Over 500 novel coronavirus cases have been reported in the past 24 hours, taking the total number of cases past the 3,500 mark, the Health Ministry said on Sunday evening. At least 83 deaths have been linked to the COVID-19 virus and 275 people have been discharged after receiving treatment. On Friday India recorded the highest number of fresh cases (601) and deaths (12) amid a surge linked to a controversial religious gathering in Delhi. More than 1,000 people who attended the religious held by Islamic group Tablighi Jamaat in Delhi last month have tested positive, the government said on Saturday. Millions switched off lights and lit diyas (earthen lamps) and candles, burst firecrackers, chanted slogans and shouted and cheered from their balconies Sunday night, following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call to “challenge the darkness spread by the coronavirus crisis”. On Sunday the Prime Minister spoke to two former Presidents and Prime Ministers and all senior opposition leaders, including Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. The phone calls came roughly two weeks after he ordered a three-week “total lockdown” to control the spread of the virus – a lockdown criticised by the opposition who had not been consulted on the matter. Sources said the calls were part of an outreach on the lifting of the lockdown.

Here are the LIVE updates on the coronavirus (COVID-19) India outbreak:

Flights likely to be allowed in staggered manner after lockdown: Report

The government is likely to allow domestic and international flight operations in India in a staggered manner post the 21-day lockdown period which is expected to end on April 14, officials said on Sunday. The aviation sector has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. On Sunday, Air Deccan became the latest casualty of the crisis as it announced indefinite suspension of flight operations and asked all employees to go on sabbatical without pay.

Centre’s aggressive containment plan to control runaway COVID-19 spread
The Health Ministry has released an aggressive containment plan for large outbreaks of COVID-19, which includes buffer zones and sealing off areas for nearly a month. The government made the containment plan after clusters posing high risk of further spread of COVID-19 emerged in several states. The strategy is meant to contain the highly contagious disease caused by a novel coronavirus, first detected in China in December, within a defined geographical area by early detection of cases, breaking the chain of transmission and thus preventing its spread to new areas. A novel virus is one that has not been previously identified in humans.
Boris Johnson hospitalised 10 days after testing positive for COVID-19

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was taken to hospital on Sunday for tests, his office said, 10 days after he tested positive for coronavirus. Boris Johnson, 55, announced he had mild symptoms of COVID-19 on March 27 and had been in self-isolation at his Downing Street residence for seven days. He had been scheduled to re-emerge on Friday after a week of recovery and working remotely but said he would remain at home because he still had a high temperature — one of the symptoms.

COVID-19: UN Chief Urges Protection of Women During Virus Lockdown

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres is urging governments around the world to include the protection of women in their response to the deadly novel coronavirus pandemic. “Violence is not confined to the battlefield,” said Guterres in a statement and a video released in multiple languages, reminiscent of his call for a ceasefire in conflicts worldwide to face the COVID-19 pandemic. “For many women and girls, the threat looms largest where they should be safest. In their own homes,” Guterres said.

1.67 million tested for coronavirus in US, says Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump on Sunday said that at least 1.6 million people have been tested for the novel coronavirus in the United States and the results have been shared with those who took a test. “That’s far more than any country’s been able to do,” Trump said. During a Coronavirus Taskforce press briefing, he exuded optimism and said “We are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel and hopefully in the not-too-distant future, we”ll be very proud of the job we all did.” He also said that Abbott Laboratories will produce 1,200 of its new 15-minute coronavirus test weekly. Abbott’s test was approved by the Food and Drug Administration on March 27.

Coronavirus: Over 500 cases in India in 24 hours
Over 500 novel coronavirus cases have been reported in the past 24 hours, taking the total number of cases past the 3,500 mark, the Health Ministry said on Sunday evening. At least 83 deaths have been linked to the COVID-19 virus and 275 people have been discharged after receiving treatment. On Friday India recorded the highest number of fresh cases (601) and deaths (12) amid a surge linked to a controversial religious gathering in Delhi.
