As of Sunday night, the number of confirmed novel coronavirus cases in India was 3,374 and the death toll at 77.

Meanwhile, responding to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s appeal, Indians across the country switched off lights and lit candles, diyas on Sunday night to show solidarity in the fight against coronavirus.

People turned off lights at their homes, lit lamps and candles as some stood in their balconies. While fireworks were heard in some areas, at many places the air resonated with the sounds of devotional songs, mantras and national anthem.

The nine-minute lights-out event on Sunday evening went off well without any disruption in the electricity grid after the government and utilities put in place elaborate plans to deal with the sudden drop and then a quick spurt in demand.
