A 3.5-magnitude earthquake at a depth of 2.9 km, struck the Delhi region at around 1:45 p.m. (local time) on Sunday. There was, however, no immediate report of any deaths or damage to property.
The quake was observed 21 km north-north-east of New Delhi, the capital city of India, the country's seismology department stated on its website.
The tremors from the quake took residents, spending the day inside homes due to the COVID-19 lockdown, by surprise, as just minutes before a pleasant change of weather was experienced due to a heavy dust storm and rain in the city.
The quake, however, evoked a flurry of reactions on social media as people are confused about whether to go out to save themselves from the earthquake or to stay home and save themselves from the pandemic.
Some even stated that we all are going to die and no one will be saved.
