Kathmandu, November 6
Noted comedian Manoj Gajurel has been admitted to the intensive care unit of the APF Hospital in Balambu of Kathmandu.
Gajurel had tested positive for the coronavirus on October 26. Although he was in home isolation since the confirmation of infection, his oxygen level dropped on Thursday, forcing the family to take him to hospital.
Gajurel had posted a status on his Facebook page before leaving for the hospital saying his health did not improve completely.
Doctors have said there is some fluid in his lungs. Poet Laxman Gamnange, a close friend of Gajurel, says the comedian’s condition is not much critical.
“It is neither a big problem nor a normal one. It will be okay soon. The treatment is excellent here,” Gamnange says.
