Kathmandu, June 9
Health and Population Minister Sher Bahadur Tamang says the government has put in priority sportspersons also as far as the Covid-19 vaccination drive is concerned.
Receiving a memorandum from a union of sportspeople at the ministry on Wednesday, the minister said the players would receive some good news in the next few days, adding they would also be considered frontline workers.
Tamang said the government was working hard about how the treatment of other diseases could be made easy even during the Covid-19 pandemic.
On the occasion, the Nepal Sports Federation demanded that the government allocate at least 5,000 doses of vaccines to the players in Kathmandu and as many as necessary in other parts of the country.
It also told the minister that all citizens of the country should receive the Covid-19 vaccines in the next two months.
