As the number of coronavirus cases across the world continues to rise, Chinese Ambassador to India Sun Weidong on Sunday wished his host country an early victory over the pandemic.

"Pay tribute to all those who have contributed to the fight against COVID-19. Wish India an early victory over the epidemic," Weidong said on Twitter.

The total number of positive coronavirus cases in India stands at more than 340, according to the Health Ministry. Seven people have died in the country so far due to the contagion.
