Almost 800 people who came in contact with COVID-19 infected doctor in Delhi has been quarantined. A mohalla clinic doctor and 4 others were tested positive after they came in contact with an infected woman who returned from Saudi Arabia. The doctor's wife and daughter have also tested positive, informed Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain. Moreover, a total of 800 people who came in contact with the mohalla clinic doctor have been quarantined for 14 days, Jain added. Delhi has so far 34 confirmed COVID-19 cases while 1 person has died. Delhi along with rest of the country is under a complete 21-day lockdown after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announcement on Tuesday. 

Meanwhile, India coronavirus confirmed cases toll has surged to 649 with 13 deaths. Globally, more than 4,70,000 people have been tested positive for coronavirus and over 21,000 have died. Almost half of the world population is under lockdown due to coronavirus outbreak as number of infected person continues to rise. China, US, Italy and Spain are the worst-hit countries in the world having maximum number of COVID-19 cases and deaths.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has advised nations that just a lockdown will not help to eradicate the virus. The authorities need to find COVID-19 suspects, test them and treat. WHO has asked countries to use this time to attack the virus through mass sanitisation and identifying suspected patients. To slow the spread of COVID-19, many countries introduced "lockdown" measures. But on their own, these measures will not extinguish epidemics. We call on all countries to use this time to attack the coronavirus. You have created a 2nd window of opportunity, said  Ghebreyesus, WHO.
