COVID-19 Live Updates: 4 Nepalis Test ‘Positive’

Despite taking drastic steps to hinder the spread of the coronavirus to the country, a Nepali citizen, who has returned home from China, has tested positive for the deadly virus.

This is the second COVID-19 infection case in Nepal. Earlier, a 32-year-old Nepali student, who returned from Wuhan, China, tested positive in January 2020. However, he was discharged within 4 days of isolation upon clinical improvement.

Meanwhile, 2 Nepali migrant workers in the UAE and a Nepali student in Australia have been infected with the novel virus.

The Nepali student, who reached Australia via Singapore from Nepal on February 26, has been isolated at the Royal Hobart Hospital in Tasmania, Australia.

Nepal’s Response to #COVID-19:

In a bid to tackle COVID-19 disease, the Nepali High-Level Coordination Committee has decided to call an all-party meeting to discuss the contagion.

Moreover, the Nepali Government has arranged self-quarantine facilities for 71 Chinese workers, who has returned from China for the construction of Pokhara Regional International Airport.

Earlier, around 36 Chinese workers had stayed in self-isolation and returned to work after proving asymptomatic.
