India finds six cases of coronavirus variant as daily infections drop


India has found six people who returned from Britain in recent weeks with a more infectious strain of the novel coronavirus that has prompted border closures around the world, even as its daily increase in cases fell to a six-month low.

All six patients have been kept in isolation, the health ministry said in a statement on Tuesday, adding that their fellow travellers were being tracked down.

“Their close contacts have also been put under quarantine,” the ministry said. -reuters-
