How Nepal is Preparing for COVID19

The world is on high alert: borders are closing and stringent measures are being taken to limit the spread of Covid-19, as the disease has come to be known.

On Wednesday, after weeks of dithering, the High-Level Coordination Committee, led by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Defence Ishwar Pokhrel took a series of crucial decisions aimed at limiting the spread of Covid-19 to Nepal. All incoming passengers, including Nepalis, from more than 50 countries in Europe, the UK, the Gulf, and West Asia, were restricted; the nation-wide Secondary Education Examinations were postponed; all gyms, health clubs, cinema halls, and dance bars were asked to close; and all gatherings of more than 25 people were forbidden.

The current testing process consists of assessing whether patients have a fever paired with symptoms of an acute respiratory disease and whether they have preexisting conditions; and then assessing if they have been in contact with someone who may have had Covid-19 within 14 days of presentation, or has been in an affected country. Those arriving in Nepal are checked for fever, and even if they don’t present any symptoms, they are asked to self-quarantine themselves. If there is a fever, they are placed in isolation and sent to a designated hospital.

If You are in Nepal: Quarantine!

If you are stuck or staying in Nepal, then you need to stay at home and quarantine.

Each person with Covid-19 transmits coronavirus on average to two to three people. With such a large multiplying factor, there will be exponential growth of cases. If there are 100 cases today, there will be 200 in a couple of days and a thousand in over a week. If contact tracing and isolation measures are not strictly instituted, this number could spiral to a million in a month, which would be disastrous in a country like Nepal.
