Coronavirus: Death Toll In India Surges To 29

No plan to extend 21 day lockdown any further, government says.

The coronavirus pandemic has claimed at least 29 lives in India, with confirmed cases rising to 1,071, authorities said Monday.
According to latest figures by the Health Ministry, the state of Maharashtra, whose capital is the country's financial hub Mumbai, is the worst-affected region in the country with some 215 positive cases and eight deaths.
As part of the measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 that has killed over 34,000 people worldwide, the Indian government imposed a 21-day countrywide lockdown from March 25. Malls, markets, restaurants, cinema houses and public transport remain shut.
Yesterday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi sought forgiveness over his government's "harsh measures."
"The battle with coronavirus is difficult and requires harsh decisions. I apologize for taking these harsh steps which have caused difficulties in your lives, especially the poor," he said in his monthly address to the nation.
"I know some of you would be angry with me also. But these tough measures were needed to win this battle."
With no work in metropolitans, the restrictions have forced many migrant workers to return to their native cities. They have no choice but to walk home or die because of hunger.
The government has denied rumors of an extension in the three-week lockdown.
"There are rumors and media reports, claiming that the Government will extend the 21-day lockdown when it expires. They are baseless," the Press Information Bureau "ed Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba as saying.
Meanwhile, it has been decided to convert the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi into a COVID-19 hospital.
Preparations are underway to convert the facility, which provides treatment mostly to victims of road accidents, into a dedicated hospital to treat coronavirus patients, according to the Press Trust of India news agency.
So far, at least 53 people have tested positive while two have died of the virus in the Indian capital. -
