Nepal entered its 40th day of lockdown imposed by the government to contain the spread of SARS-CoV-2, a virus that causes Covid-19.
Nepal so far has reported 59 Covid-19 cases and 16 patients have returned home after recovery. The country has not reported any deaths due to the virus yet.
A House committee on Friday instructed the government to find ways to ease the lockdown by putting in some necessary protocols, arguing that the extended lockdown has thrown normal life out of gear.
After losing their jobs to lockdown, thousands of daily wage workers were compelled to make their journey home on foot. The tourism and hospitality sectors have been severely affected.
