by OtownGist

India’s Taj Mahal, which was set to welcome tourists on Monday, will remain closed until further notice as cases continue to spike in the northern city of Agra, and across the country.

Other monuments in the city such as Agra Fort and Akbar’s tomb will also not be open to tourists.

Officials are yet to announce a date for their re-opening.

India’s caseload has been rising at an alarming rate – more than 24,000 cases were added in the last 24 hours.
