The number of COVID-19 cases spiked from 126 to 137 Tuesday in India, including 14 discharged and three deaths. 

The new figures forced the government to issue an advisory asking businesses to allow employees to work from home.

The country also reported its third death from the virus Tuesday.

The advisory comes one day after the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare announced a temporary travel ban from the EU, U.K., and Turkey, effective Wednesday.
It suspended travel from Afghanistan, the Philippines, and Malaysia, with immediate effect. Airlines have been informed not to board passengers from those countries.
