The coronavirus, which has already been declared pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO), has so far claimed more than 7,400 lives and has affected over 186,000.

Meanwhile, talking about India, the number of cases rose to 126 on Tuesday with 3 deaths reported, even as the Government put the country in a near-total lockdown with states shutting down schools and colleges and banning gatherings.

The government has advised people to maintain 1-meter distance between people till March 31, as a precautionary measure. The government has also restricted entry of travelers from the European Union, Turkey and the United Kingdom from March 18, 2020. However, this decision will be reviewed again.
