Biggest 24-Hour Spike In Coronavirus Deaths, Cases In India

New Delhi:More than a month into a countrywide lockdown, India reported the biggest single-day jump in the number of coronavirus patients with 2,644 new cases in the last 24 hours, including 83 deaths – also the highest – taking the total to 39,980 cases and 1,301 deaths, the Union Health Ministry said today.
In the last week, the country has registered more than 13,000 cases and more than 700 deaths linked to the highly contagious illness, which began in China’s Wuhan city in December and has spread to over 180 countries.

The lockdown is set to ease from tomorrow in parts of the country that are least affected by the pandemic identified as Orange and Green zones. Strict restrictions continue to be in place in worst-hit districts marked as “Red Zones”.
