COVID-19: India tally crosses 850; 149 positive cases in 24 hours
On Saturday the number of COVID-19 cases climbed to 873 in India with the death toll rising to 19, according to the Union Health Ministry. These include a 10-month-old from Karnataka, with no travel history, and a seven month old from Kashmir
In a big announcement, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted that he had tested positive for the virus. “I have mild symptoms and am self-isolating,” Johnson said.
The news came on a day when a 65-year-old man who travelled to Delhi by train died at a district hospital in Karnataka’s Tumakuru, becoming the state’s third and India’s 19th victim to the deadly virus.
On Thursday, at least four more coronavirus deaths had been reported across the country, the highest in a day so far. However, the Union health ministry dismissed concern of community transmission of the virus.
