But amidst all this, support is pouring in from across the country, as people are stepping up to help others.
Lately, Nepali cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane has launched a COVID-19 fundraising campaign by providing NPR 300,000 on his behalf.
Leg spinner Lamichhane initiated the campaign through Twitter with the hashtag “Team Sandeep Lamichhane.” In the tweet, he mentioned his bank account and appealed all to make contributions to the fund.
