While the Nepali Government is striving to implement the best strategies to impede the coronavirus spread, the nation has entered the second phase of COVID-19 transmission.
Nepal has reported its first locally transmitted case on April 4, 2020. A 34-year-old woman in Kailali has contracted the COVID-19 infection from her brother-in-law, a 34-year-old man, who had recently returned from Dubai and was infected with the coronavirus.
A total of three new coronavirus positive cases were reported on April 4, 2020.
A 21-year-old youth and a 41-year-old man both with a travel history to India have tested positive for the COVID-19 infection.
Among the nine positive coronavirus cases in the country, eight patients have travel history to coronavirus-infected countries.
In view of this, the Nepali Government has started performing contact tracing of all the Nepalis who have returned home from various countries.
According to the Nepali Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration, around 61,000 citizens have returned home from abroad via land and air since March 17 to April 5, 2020.
Among these foreign returnees, 485 have reached home via air.
According to the Ministry, around 117 foreign returnees are under self-isolation in Kathmandu. However, the nation has not witnessed any coronavirus infection cases in the last 24-hours.
As of today, coronavirus has infected 1,346,261 people and claimed 69,477 lives globally.
