New Delhi, Dec 04, 2020: India’s caseload of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) is currently at 9,571,559 after the Union health ministry on Friday reported that the country had logged a total of 36,595 infections in the previous 24 hours. The Supreme Court, meanwhile, stayed the Gujarat high court’s order mandating ’compulsory community service’ at Covid-19 care centres for people not wearing masks, after the order was challenged there by the state government.
Also, the Delhi government told the high court it did not intend to impose a night curfew in the capital for now. The city has been the epicentre of the country’s recent surge in Covid-19 cases. With a total of 3,734 new Covid-19 cases on Thursday, Delhi’s overall case count reached 582,058, a Delhi government health bulletin showed. With 82 fatalities, death toll has risen to 9,424.
