The District Administration Office in Banke has issued a prohibitory order across the district effective from Monday midnight until May 3.
Issuing a notice on Sunday, the district administration asked the public to refrain from going out unnecessarily.
Chief District Officer Shivaram Gelal said the district administration was compelled to impose the order as the lockdown enforced by Nepalgunj Sub-metropolitan City and Kohalpur Municipality did not bear expected results. “The prohibitory order has been issued in accordance with the prevailing laws of the country to break the chain of Covid-19 infection cases in the district,” reads the notice.
All services except those in the health and security sectors, and in the supply of daily essentials such as vegetables, cooking gas, milk, and medicines will remain closed.
Similarly, air services and already scheduled examinations will run as usual.
