Impact of Coronavirus

On the back of growing fear of COVID-19, the number of visitors to the hotels across the nation has reduced drastically. According to the President of the Regional Hotel Association Sauraha, Deepak Bhattarai, the current hotel bookings in Sauraha, Chitwan is only 20% against 90% around this period last year.


As there are no visitors, the hotels in Sauraha have started sending their employees on leave. Around half of the hotels have already sent 50% of their staff on leave.
