With this, the tally has gone up to 1,58,333 cases and 4,531 deaths, according to the Health Ministry. Case-wise India is now among the top ten worst-hit, having steadily moved up from the bottom, from among 180 countries, three months ago. Yet India's mortality rate has been consolably low, even as globally there have been over 3.5 lakh deaths, the US alone losing 1 lakh lives in less than three months.

Meanwhile, a confident India resumed domestic flights last Monday, a week ahead of a national lockdown scheduled to end on May 31, although in a heavily curtailed volume. Bengal, which stayed away from joining the operations then due to the cyclone, on Thursday made its entry into the aviation map. Passengers were seen queueing up at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata on Thursday morning.

Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri has said that all the airports are functioning smoothly. The night before the domestic flights were to resume, the objections from several Sates in view of the coronavirus epidemic were resolved by cancelling some flights to bring down the traffic at airports in a compromise. Although it led to chaos at the airport the next morning.

The Railways too is resuming the train service from June 1. Initially, 200 trains will run, covering all the States. This will be in addition to the special trains being run to ferry the stranded people as also the thousands of Shramik Special trains transporting jobless migrant workers back to their home States.

In Delhi, as employee of Raj Niwas has contracted the infection and a building has been sealed. So also the NDMC central office. The Railway Ministry was sealed a few days ago as several of its employees were detected to have the infection.
