Covid in India

The Northern Railways on Thursday cancelled a slew of Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto Express', stating low patronisation and rising coronavirus cases as the reason behind the decision. The to-and-fro services of eight Shatabdi Express, two Rajdhani Express, two Duronto Express and one Vande Bharat Express are among around 28 trains that have been cancelled "till further advice" by the Northern Railways. Meanwhile, India reported 4,12,262 new cases and 3,980 deaths in the 24 hours ending 9 am Thursday. India had become the first country in the world to register over 4 lakh infections in a single day on April 30, when it reported 4.08 lakh infections. The new infections have pushed India's caseload to over 2.06 crore while active cases stand at 35.66 lakh.
