The Indian Railways cancelled 84 more trains, taking the total number to 155 on Thursday, 19 March, PTI reported.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the nation on Thursday at 8 pm about the coronavirus pandemic. He chaired a high-level meeting to review the ongoing efforts on Wednesday.

Indian Council of Medical research told ANI that 826 random samples have been tested and none of them are positive, so community transmission of COVID-19 can be ruled out for now.

Meanwhile, as COVID-19 cases worldwide swell, China on Thursday claimed it had no new domestic cases of the novel coronavirus for the first time since it started recording them in January, but reported a spike in infections imported from abroad, AFP reported.
