Hello, I'm Neil Nunes with the BBC News. India has surpassed Russia as the country with the 3rd highest number of coronavirus infections. New cases hit a record-high in each of the last three days, bringing the Indian health ministry tally to about 690000. Our South Asia editor Anbarasan Ethirajan says it's very difficult to enforce a lockdown in India.

With most votes counted, Croatia's governing center-right, HDZ Party is on track to win a convincing victory in parliamentary elections. It'll easily finish as the largest party though without an outright majority, leaving the Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic in a strong position to dictate the terms of a new coalition. He said voters had opted for responsibility and experience to meet Croatia serious problems. This big victory gives us right to be happy and relaxed. We will together continue to work with our full hearts for Croatia. Big voter support is also huge obligation for us and we will take that into account every day of the new term in dealing with the challenges facing Croatia.
