Kathmandu, April 9
Gandaki Chief Minister Prithvi Subba Gurung telephoned a patient of Covid-19 in Baglung district of the province on Thursday and took stock of her health.
The young woman from the district, who had recently returned home from Belgium, had tested positive for the virus around one week after her return flight. She is currently being treated at Dhaulagiri Hospital in the district.
During the call, Gurung advised her to drink a lot of water and take care of her health, assuring the government would provide ‘good treatment’ for her.
“Rest assured that you will be cured. Stay calm and don’t panic. Yours is not a critical case,” Gurung told her, “But, please don’t think you will be out of the hospital in 14 days. You may have to stay a few days longer. Once you are healed, you will go home.”
