Delhi-Noida Border Sealed Amid Coronavirus Crisis, Cases In India Near 19,000-Mark – Newsfeed


COVID-19 Cases India Updates: India has extended lockdown till May 3. (File)

New Delhi:

Total 18,985 positive coronavirus cases have been reported across the country so far which includes 603 deaths. A total of 3,252 people have been cured of coronavirus in India so far, including 705 patients who were discharged on Monday, taking the recovery percentage to 17.48 per cent, the government informed on Tuesday.

The efficacy of Rapid Testing kits for coronavirus brought in from China have been questioned by three states, one of which, Rajasthan, has refused to use them. Following complaints from Rajasthan that only 5.4 per cent of the tests have proved effective, the Indian Council of Medical Research — the nodal body in the fight against coronavirus — has asked states to hold off the use of the Rapid Testing Kits for two days, in which they hope to resolve the matter.

Worldwide, more than 24 lakh people have been infected from coronavirus and over 1,75,000 have died so far.
