He said, “We cannot lift the lockdown despite the fact that number of cases continue to rise in India. There is no point in becoming emotional about lifting the lockdown. Instead, we have to adopt stricter measures to control the spread of COVID-19.”
Stressing up on the need to step up strong coordination between the federal government and provincial governments, Mr. Oli also appealed Chief Ministers to launch awareness campaign on COVID-19. Nepal has so far reported 9 confirmed cases of COVID-19 out of which eight are undergoing treatment while one person has recovered.
