The coronavirus pandemic has not only disrupted the socio-economic conditions across the world, it has taken a ‘huge emotional‘ toll on the people.
Many people are feeling emotionally stressed due to the uncertainty surrounding the contagion.
With the major countries now in lockdown, the people have been feeling an overwhelming amount of stress, whether it may be due to watching the news, visiting hospitals or self-quarantine.
Even in countries like Nepal with no significant number of coronavirus infections, people are anxious, helpless and insecure.
In the need of the hour, the Nepali Embassy in Washington DC has endorsed a ‘COVID-19 Stress Management Information Desk’ to support Nepalis working in the USA and the rest of the world.
