India is currently under the third phase of the lockdown to curb the spread of the virus. While some relaxations have been granted in the green and orange zone, most restrictions continue in the red zones, where the case load of the virus is high.

The ministry on its website also said, "The case status will be updated on the website only once a day in the morning instead of twice a day, as being done presently."

"States wise distribution is subject to further verification and reconciliation", it added.
