Indian Railways on Friday evening cancelled all passenger trains from midnight Saturday to 10 pm Sunday after Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for a "janata curfew". BJP leader and former Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje has gone into self-isolation, with her son Dushyant Singh, after singer Kanika Kapoor tested positive for the virus. Meanwhile the number of confirmed novel coronavirus cases in the country jumped past 230, with at 63 cases reported on Friday alone. This marks the largest single-day jump in the outbreak. At least four deaths have been linked to the virus. The Health Ministry has urged people to follow PM Modi's curfew call. In response to the spread of the virus, the centre has shut borders to international flights and suspended incoming visas, while states have closed public spaces and asked people to work from home.
