Kathmandu : The general public is entering Nepal without any hindrance by land route from India, which has become the ‘hotspot’ of the coronavirus epidemic.
The government’s efforts to spot it have not yet been effective. When two people were infected with corona in Nepal, all international borders between India and China were closed and traffic was banned from Chaitra 10, 2076.
Although the second wave of infection has been spreading rapidly in recent times, the border has not been sealed and no health check-up has been organized for the commuters.
Infection has been confirmed in 670 people who have entered Nepal from India since Bhaisak 1. Many who have entered Nepal from India, 5,971 were tested for antigen and PCR. About 12 percent of them were infected.
According to these statistics, there is a risk that the situation will get out of control if the border is not blocked. According to public health experts, the epidemic that spread rapidly in India could spread to Nepal at the same rate if it enters without testing.
The Ministry of Health and Population had put 14 districts in the Valley and Terai-Madhesh at high risk of infection a year and half ago. However, no precautions have been taken accordingly.
