COVID 19 UPDATES

The Covid-19 call center

Data from the Epidemiology and Disease Control Division show the call centre has received 300,000 phone calls so far.

Gauff tests positive for Covid-19, to miss Tokyo Games

The announcement by Gauff, who last competed at Wimbledon where she lost in the last 16, comes two days after Australian tennis player Alex de Minaur tested positive for Covid-19 prior to his departure for the Tokyo Olympics.

Editorial

Get the point?

Nepali migrant workers cannot travel to labour destinations as they are yet to be inoculated.

Kanchanpur sees decline in Covid-19 cases

Health workers say the prohibitory orders put in place on April 29 have been effective in curbing the spread of the virus but advise caution while easing restrictions.

What we know about the origins of Covid-19

The two prevailing competing theories are that the virus jumped from animals, possibly originating with bats, to humans, or that it escaped from a virology laboratory in Wuhan, China.

Editorial

Ramp up testing

Without curbing the infection rate, we risk a perilous situation of a flare-up in new cases and deaths.

Queuing up for O2

Shortage of medical oxygen as cases rise, coupled with the nation's crumbling health infrastructure, has put the lives of Covid-19 infected at risk.

A tale of two Nepals

As the country reported 8,842 new Covid-19 cases and 214 deaths, Nepali politicians had but one number in mind–136, the figure that could secure them power.

Nepal’s vaccination status

The country so far has received 3,148,000 doses and used 2,397,000 doses. Those who took the first dose of China’s Sinopharm vaccine will be administered the second dose from May 16 to May 25.

Complacency, miscalculation and missteps

Country records highest daily coronavirus death toll and new cases. Oli’s chest-thumping and false claims continue as vaccine supply is nowhere in sight. 47 percent of total tests return positive results.

As if there’s no pandemic

Oli and his clique’s seeming indifference to the raging coronavirus and unfolding tragedy is stark. Even as virus cases hit a new record of 7,137 and death toll clocks 3,325, political games continue.

People leaving Capital in droves

Health experts fear these masses could spread the disease to remote villages untouched by the virus and call for strict monitoring of visitors by communities and local governments.

Fake negative test reports cause for concern

172 passengers were turned away from Tribhuvan International Airport for furnishing Covid-19 negative results from the labs that were caught issuing reports to foreign job aspirants without testing them.

Covid-19: The year of living dangerously

One year since Nepal reported its first case, government response has been dismal. Vaccines are likely to be available sooner or later, but the path to inoculate all is not clear.

WHO warns against pandemic complacency amid vaccine rollout

Britain approved Pfizer Inc’s Covid-19 vaccine on Wednesday, raising hopes that the tide could soon turn against a virus that has killed nearly 1.5 million people globally, hammered the world economy and upended normal life for billions.

No takers for government’s migrant repatriation plan

Since the government launched its repatriation scheme in June following outbreaks of Covid-19 in labour destination countries, a total of 103,807 Nepalis, including migrant workers, have returned home from 59 countries under the evacuation plan.

Editorial

Covid-19 spares no one

The average number of new infections has been consistently rising, with no exit strategy in sight.
