Some schools in the Kathmandu metropolitan city have been found continuing physical classes amid the rising Covid-19 cases in the city.

The city’s Education Officer Ram Prasad Subedi says a few schools in wards 15 and 18 are found to be operational.

Meanwhile, the local government has warned of action against such schools.

“After receiving the complaints, we have directed them to close classes immediately,” Subedi says, “If they have not followed the directive, we will take action.”
