The record surge in numbers comes a day after India entered its phase 3 of the nationwide lockdown. The centre has eased several restrictions in green, orange and red zones of the country. 

As the government allowed selling of liquor in green, orange, and red zones (except containment zones) in the country, there was huge queue at wine shops that opened after 42 days. In Delhi, the Arvind Kejriwal-led government said 70 per cent tax will be charged on wine to fight COVID-19. Wine shops were closed in four districts of Delhi on Monday as people flouted social distancing norms. 

Meanwhile, India on Tuesday sent three naval ships to evacuate Indians stranded in Maldives and UAE due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Three ships sent to evacuate Indians from the Maldives and UAE will return to Kochi.
