Kathmandu at high risk of covid-19 infection; CCMC

Kathmandu: The Covid-19 Crisis Management Committee (CCMC) has concluded that the risk of corona infection is high in the Kathmandu Valley. However, the CCMC has also stated that the injunction demanded by the Upatyaka Municipal Forum will not be imposed.

The latest stage of the transition was discussed at a meeting of the CCMC Board of Directors on Tuesday. According to CCMC Secretary Mahendra Guragain, although the infection is low in some districts, there is a high risk in the Valley.

However, he clarified that the ban will not be imposed as demanded by the Mayor’s Forum.

Class 12 examination has also started from Tuesday. Colleges are also conducting class 11 examinations.

The meeting has discussed which areas should be opened and which areas should be closed in high and low risk areas. Services that have been shut down in districts where transition is low can be gradually reopened.

The meeting also decided to arrange parking for the ambulances of the Kathmandu Valley’s integrated ambulance service at the local level including the Kathmandu Metropolitan City.

Also, instructions have been given not to shut down the entire service once the corona infection has been confirmed in one employee or official. The meeting also agreed with the Ministry of Tourism to start regular flights to more countries after analyzing the risks.
