India’s nCoV tally reaches 2,26,700 with record jump of 9,851 infections

New Delhi, (thestates.news) India on Friday registered sharpest spike with 9,851 novel coronavirus infections, taking the caseload to 2,26,700 even as the country is gearing for reopening of malls, religious places and restaurants from June 8 to jump-start the economy battered by the pandemic outbreak.
However, strict guidelines will accompany the trimmed restrictions.
As per Union Health Ministry, 273 deaths were recorded in the past 24 hrs, raising the fatalities to 6,348.
In a positive development, nearly 48 per cent of the total coronavirus cases — 1.09 lakh patients have recovered from the contagion. Active cases in the country now stand at 1,10,960.
For migrants
The Supreme Court ordered the central and state governments to transport all migrants stranded across the country to their native places within the next 15 days.
In another judgement, Apex Court sought a detailed response from the Central government on a PIL for capping cost of treatment of COVID-19 patients in private hospitals as they were charging exorbitant fees from them, making it inaccessible to many infected with the virus.    (uni) (mediasaheb.com)
