As per the latest update from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the total number of cases has now reached 2547 in India, including 2322 active cases, 162 cured/discharged/migrated people and 62 deaths. Early on Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a video message applauded the unprecedented discipline and sense of service shown by people during coronavirus lockdown.  “We have to move towards light from the darkness created by coronavirus,” PM said, as he urged people to switch off the lights at their homes and light up lamps, candles or mobile phone torches for nine minutes at 9 pm on April 5 to display the country’s “collective resolve” to defeat coronavirus.

“Maintain social distancing while lighting up lamps; remain in your homes. There is no force stronger than our spirit and enthusiasm,” PM Modi further added.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, the Delhi health department authorities wrote to the city police commissioner, seeking deployment of adequate security personnel at the hospitals designated for COVID-19 treatment and the quarantine facilities in the national capital.

In a letter to the police chief, Delhi Health Secretary Padmini Singla said the coronavirus patients brought from the Markaz in the Nizamuddin area and some other patients were triggering a “law-and-order problem” and “commotions” in hospitals. It said those who had congregated inside the mosque were brought out in a “massive exercise” held from March 30 to April 1, 536 of them were sent to various hospitals after they showed symptoms and 1,810 were sent to quarantine facilities.
