COVID-19 Cases in Nepal

Nepal has started witnessing a sudden surge in the coronavirus infection cases since the last week. However, the total COVID-19 cases are almost negligible when compared to other countries.

The Nepali Government has reported 30 coronavirus positive cases in the last three days, taking the total tally to 99.
