Kathmandu: The Education and Health Committee of the Parliament has directed the government to provide ICU with oxygen and ventilator in the hospitals.

A meeting of the committee held at SinghaDurbar on Tuesday said that covid-19 infection is spreading rapidly and directed the government to take care of the patients.

The committee has also instructed the government to carry out systematic lockdown. The government has decided to impose lockdown on the most infected districts, including the Kathmandu Valley. The government has also been directed to send skilled health workers as soon as possible to Nepalgunj, Birgunj, Bhairahawa and other cities bordering India and the areas most affected by Corona.

During the discussion, the lawmakers said that the morale of doctors and nurses had declined due to the non-receipt of risk allowance and the government should pay attention to this.
