Policemen ask vegetable vendor to leave a market during lockdown to check the spread of the coronavirus, in Prayagraj, India, Saturday, April 4, 2020. India is adding more resources to tackle its increase in coronavirus cases by announcing that private hospitals may be requisitioned to help treat virus patients, and turning railway cars and a motor racing circuit into makeshift quarantine facilities.
