India has registered 6,977 cases of novel coronavirus in 24 hours, the Health Ministry data showed. 154 people have died of COVID-19 illness during the period, it said.

This is for the fourth consecutive day that the number of infection have risen past 6,000-mark. With the new cases, the total number of cases stand at 1,38, 845 and death toll climbs to 4,021, making India among top 10 countries affected the most by the virus.

In Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the national capital, which has the fourth highest coronavirus cases in India, recorded a jump of 3,500 new patients in a week after the lockdown was relaxed for the fourth phase but added that the situation was under control.

"Our government on Sunday ordered 117 private hospitals in the city to reserve 20 per cent of their beds for coronavirus patients. Now, 2,000 beds are available in private sector from today," Arvind Kejriwal said this afternoon while addressing reporters via video conference.

Despite the spike in virus cases, the government has opened Indian skies for domestic passenger services from today (Monday). Union Minister for Civil Aviation, Hardeep Singh Puri, on Sunday announced that following a "long day of hard negotiations", domestic flights will recommence across the country, after nearly two months.

The government announced a series of dos and don'ts that would begin with social distancing at the airport and no-contact check-in. Ahead of the journey, the government has asked all passengers to download the Aarogya Setu application on their mobile devices and states to ensure thermal screening.

Passengers have also been asked to reach the airport two hours before departure and maintain social distancing. The centre has allowed states to develop their own isolation and quarantine protocols.
