A glance at the global coronavirus statistics reveals that the Nepalis living in their homeland are far safe than the Nepalis residing in various foreign countries.
While Nepal seems to escape the worst from the contagion, the situation of the Nepalis abroad is becoming worse day by day.
The condition of Non-Residential Nepalis (NRNs) is very daunting, especially those in the European and American countries.
Lately, the other countries including Kuwait and Bahrain have seen a sudden surge in the number of Nepalis infected by COVID-19.
According to the Nepali Ambassador to Kuwait Durga Prasad Bhandari, 22 Nepalis have tested positive for coronavirus on April 28, 2020. With this, the total number of Nepalis infected has reached 51.
Earlier, 29 Nepalis were reported to have been infected with COVID-19 in the country.
According to the Nepali Embassy in Bahrain, 72 Nepalis have tested positive for coronavirus on April 28, 2020, taking the total number to 121.
Earlier, only 49 Nepalis have been infected with coronavirus in the country.
According to the Embassy, around 30,000 Nepali migrant workers are residing in Bahrain.
According to the Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA), over 2000 Nepalis have been infected and 49 have died in 24 foreign countries.
Around 1000 Nepalis in the USA and over 700 in the UK have been infected with COVID-19 so far.
On the contrary, Nepal has reported only 57 coronavirus positive cases and zero death cases.
