Nepal’s Kovid-19 Task Force on Sunday made recommendations such as banning gatherings, closing schools and making vaccination cards mandatory in public places to overcome the increase in corona virus infection. According to the data released by the Ministry of Health, 1,167 new cases of Kovid-19 were reported in Nepal on Sunday and 224 people were cured, while two patients died. The total cases of infection with corona virus in Nepal increased to 9,30,004. Currently 6,848 patients are being treated in the country. So far 11,604 patients have died due to this disease in Nepal. The Health Ministry has confirmed 27 cases of Omicron form.
The COVID Crisis Management Coordination Center (CCMCC), a government body set up to deal with the pandemic situation in the country, on Sunday issued several recommendations, including a ban on gatherings of more than 25 people. The CCMCC has also recommended the government to close the schools by January 29. It also urged students to get vaccinated as the vaccination campaign for children in the age group of 12 to 17 years began in Kathmandu on Sunday.
It asked the home ministry to make vaccination cards mandatory for people to avail public services from January 17. “People will have to present their vaccination card to enter public places like offices, hotels, restaurants, cinema halls, stadiums, airports and parks,” the recommendations said. The task force has also urged political parties to refrain from organizing large gatherings. All the recommendations of the task force will be implemented only after the approval of the concerned ministries.
