The ICMR data said of the 506 cases as of Tuesday morning, 35 have recovered and nine died. Karnataka, Delhi, Gujarat, Punjab, Bihar, West Bengal and Himachal Pradesh have recorded one death each. Delhi has 30 coronavirus cases; five of the patients have recovered.

As of Monday night, there were 471 cases and the same number of fatalities. The updated number means 35 new cases and no fresh casualties.

The announcement came on the day over 1.06 billion people residing in more than 600 Indian districts are under lockdown.

India has also suspended domestic flights as well as passenger services of the railways till March 31, widening curbs amid the public health emergency. International flight operations have been stopped on March 22, and the restriction will remain in place for seven days.

There are restrictions on traffic movements, and people not following orders are being booked. However, people discharging essential services, such as medical facilities, are exempt.
