Coronavirus: India is promised $1 billion to fight pandemic as deaths rise

The World Bank has pledged one billion dollars to India to help tackle the coronavirus pandemic there. The city of Mumbai has some of the highest numbers of cases in India, with many people living in congested slums. Worldwide there are now more than a million confirmed cases of coronavirus. Europe remains at the epicentre of the outbreak. Italy is worst affected with more than 14,000 deaths although the mortality rate is beginning to slow. In France, the number of deaths is continuing to rise. Police in Paris are strictly enforcing tough quarantine measures with railway stations, airports and major roads monitored, to prevent people leaving the city.
