Earlier today, the Union Health Ministry said that recovery rate of COVID-19 in India stands at 27.52 per cent with 11,706 COVID-19 patients cured till Monday evening. 

"COVID-19 curve relatively flat as of now; if we work collectively peak mayn't come, but if we fail we may see spike in cases," said Luv Agarwal, Joint Secretary, Union Health Ministry.

Taking about ferrying migrant labourers to respective hometowns, the central government in the joint press conference added that they have advised that people must stay wherever they are during lockdown but in special cases allowed trains to function. 

As India entered the third phase of the lockdown with ease in restrictions in green, orange and red zones, large numbers of people queued to buy liquor. After some people flouted social distancing norms, people closed wine shops in four districts in Delhi.
