The wife of an Indian diplomat has tested positive for coronavirus, the Foreign Office of Pakistan said Monday.

The woman arrived in Pakistan as part of a 12-member delegation from India on May 22 through Wagah border. Their tests were at first negative but then was positive in a second round.

Pakistan has asked the delegation to quarantine.

The foreign office said that Pakistan has told the Indian foreign ministry to ensure strict compliance with the National Control Command Centre’s instructions.

Death toll in India has crossed 300,000 due to the virus, it said Monday. It is the third country after the United States and Brazil to hit the figure as it battles a huge wave of infections, AFP reported.

The South Asian nation has been seeing record single-day rises in infections and fatalities in recent weeks, with its healthcare system overwhelmed by the Covid-19 wave, according to AFP.
