Kathmandu, May 11
The ongoing lockdown, officially the prohibitory order, imposed in the Kathmandu valley has been extended by 15 days–up to May 27.
Initially imposed for one week since April 29, it was extended until May 12 earlier. However, a meeting of the three chief district officers of the Kathmandu valley on Tuesday decided to extend it by 15 days, arguing the spread of the coronavirus infection has not been contained yet.
In addition to the previous orders, the authorities now will stop construction works also except those for national pride projects, according to Lalitpur’s Acting Chief District Officer Lalit Basnet.
Weddings and other gatherings should be limited to 10 people only, that too at a home, as other party venues will remain closed.
