On Tuesday India recorded the third death due to COVID-19, a 64-year-old man from Mumbai, who died with symptoms of the novel coronavirus at Kasturba Hospital.
On Tuesday the WHO in its report said that nearly 14,000 people were infected with the novel coronavirus globally over the past day, bringing the entire number of confirmed cases above 167,500.
A total of 167,511 cases are confirmed worldwide, with 13,903 new ones over the past 24 hours. At the same time, the global death toll rose by 862 to 6,606.
As the world shut down borders and limited travel, India’s total number of cases touched 125 after fresh cases were reported from several states.
Late night reports said two more tested positive one in Kalaburagi and another in Bengaluru. This brings the total cases of COVID-19 in the state to ten five in Bengaluru, and the wife and daughter of a techie who tested positive.
In Tamil Nadu, which has had just one coronavirus case, the govt on Monday ordered the closure of all malls, clubs, bars, amusement parks, swimming pools, gymnasiums, museums and zoos till March 31.
A short while after the Tamil Nadu order came news that the Ministry of Health had proposed detailed social distancing measures across India that included urging states to shut down all schools, universities, theatres, swimming pools, gyms and museums till March 31 while “exploring the likelihood of postponing all examinations.”
