Kathmandu, April 27
The federal government has decided to extend the prohibitory order imposed in the Kathmandu valley in a bid to control the Covid-19 spread by at least one week.
Earlier on Monday afternoon, chief district officers of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur had decided to impose the prohibitory order from April 29 to May 5 midnight. However, a cabinet meeting held a few hours after that decided to add one more week, informs Tourism Minister Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal.
“The specified quarantine period is 14 days, hence the prohibitory order should last at least 15 days,” Dhakal says, “Whatever the CDOs have decided is not enough.”
