So far, the Nepali Government has reported 48 coronavirus positive cases and zero death cases. However, 10 patients have been discharged after a successful recovery.
As of today, the global coronavirus death toll stood at 191,055, while the total number of infection cases increased to 2,725,391.
Currently, 1,788,516 patients are undergoing treatment while 1,729,838 of them are in mild condition and 58,678 in critical condition.
In the past 24 hours, Nepal has reported 3 new COVID-19 positive cases taking the total tally to 48.
The new cases include:
The 14-year-old boy is the youngest person to be diagnosed with coronavirus infection in Nepal so far. The boy has entered Nepal from India on April 5, 2020 during the lockdown and was kept in quarantine.
At first, his swab samples tested positive for COVID-19 through RDT technology. However, the result came negative from the swab sample test at Janakpur.
Surprisingly, when the sample was sent to Teku-based National Public Laboratory for reconfirmation, the result came positive for coronavirus.
These appalling situations demonstrate the inefficiency of the health care system in the country.
Even though the number of coronavirus infection cases has been rising continuously in Nepal, there are no death cases and the number of recovered patients is also increasing.
So far, 10 coronavirus patients have been discharged after full recovery taking the number of active cases in the nation to 38.
On April 24, 2020, a 50-year-old woman from Sudurpaschim Province and a 58-years old man and his 81-year-old mother with travel history to London have been discharged from the hospital.
According to the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP), 9,199 samples have been tested through the Polymerase Chain Reaction method and 34,523 through Rapid Diagnostic Test.
