Kathmandu: The government has directed to strengthen security in border linked with India from Baitadi, as the corona virus infection in India is rising rapidly.

The district administration office, Baitadi, has issued a notice and requested to adopt health safety standards as there is a risk of corona virus in neighboring countries as well.

It has been requested to use masks, sanitizers and maintain physical distance while traveling in public transport.
