Toll rises amid eco­nomic push

San Francisco Chronicle - - CORONAVIRU­S PANDEMIC -

Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi says In­dia must fo­cus on bol­ster­ing the econ­omy as it ex­its the shut­down phase, even as the num­ber of coro­n­avirus cases continues to climb.

On Sunday, In­dia re­ported ad­di­tional 19,906 con­firmed cases, tak­ing the to­tal to 528,859 with 16,095 deaths.

Modi said that dur­ing the post­shut­down pe­riod, In­di­ans have to stay vig­i­lant, wear­ing masks and ob­serv­ing so­cial dis­tanc­ing.
