Stay safe: Third wave of Covid-19 has begun in Nepal

KATHMANDU: Health experts and officials at the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) have said that the third wave of Covid-19 has begun in Nepal as both infection rate and the number of new cases have increased.

“Looking into the infection rate and death rate, third wave of the coronavirus has hit Nepali community,” informed Sameer Kumar Adhikari, joint-spokesperson at the MoHP.

Similarly, Anup Bastola, director at the Sukraraj Tropical and Infectious Diseases Hospital at Teku, informed that inability to follow safety standards and health protocols have triggered  third wave in Nepal.

Nepal on Wednesday recorded the highest single-day spike of 4,107 new cases of COVID-19 after the government relaxed the prohibitory orders a few weeks ago.

There are currently 30,270 people in home isolation, 3,194 in institutional isolation, 714 in ICU’s and 156 on ventilators.
