India reported 9,987 coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours, according to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

That's the biggest single-day jump in reported infections in the country and comes as India entered the "Unlock 1" reopening phase on Monday.

The easing of restrictions allows most economic activities to resume. But Mumbai -- Maharashtra state's capital and the worst-hit city nationwide -- still has major restrictions in place, effective for schools, train services, cinemas, shopping malls, places of worship and more spaces.

In total, India has recorded at least 266,598 Covid-19 infections and 7,466 deaths, according to the health ministry.

The number of active cases in the country stands at 129,917 and 129,215 have been treated or discharged.

Qatar will gradually lift its coronavirus restrictions beginning June 15, according to Qatar News Agency (QNA.)

The easing of restrictions will happen in four stages, Qatar's spokesperson of the Supreme Committee for Crisis Management announced Monday, QNA reported.

First stage starts June 15: It includes the gradual reopening of mosques with precautionary measures. 

Second stage starts July 1: It will allow for public gatherings of a maximum of 10 people.

Third stage starts August 1: This allows for gatherings of 40 people maximum and flights from countries "with low risk" for residents and other "priority travelers" who will be subject to two weeks of quarantine upon entering Qatar.

Final stage starts September 1: It includes "gatherings to be permitted according to certain controls and capacity," QNA reported.

The spokesperson "stressed that the gradual lifting of restrictions doesn't mean lack of application of the precautionary measures, noting that transition from stage to next depends on extent of everyone's commitment to the instructions," QNA reported.

As of Monday night, Qatar has 70,158 confirmed coronavirus cases and 57 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.
