NEW DELHI: Three more people infected with coronavirus died overnight in India as the government sought on Thursday (Mar 26) to improve basic services to 1.3 billion people locked indoors to slow the spread of the disease. 

Streets were silent across India's cities and towns on the second day of a three-week, 24 hour shutdown as people heeded Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call not to step out of homes except in emergencies or to buy food and other necessities.
