From China allowing Indians to return to another Uttar Pradesh minister reportedly testing positive - here are the top news updates on the Covid-19 pandemic.

Around 150 Indians including diplomats' kin, bank staff, etc will return to China on August 6.

Beijing hadn't allowed Indians into China on a June 29 flight following which hectic talks took place.
