Global coronavirus cases surpassed 400,000, according to data collated by Johns Hopkins University. Almost 17,000 people have now died, while more than 100,000 have recovered
Italy reported a jump of 743 deaths in the past day - 141 more than Monday
While the number of deaths has risen, the number of new infections appears to be slowing down

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi has imposed a nationwide lockdown in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The restrictions came into force at midnight local time (18:30 GMT) and will be enforced for 21 days.

"There will be a total ban on venturing out of your homes," Mr Modi said in a televised address.

He appealed for people not to panic - but crowds quickly mobbed stores in the capital, Delhi, and other cities.

Correspondents say it is not clear how - or even if - people will now be allowed out to buy food and other essentials.
