Kathmandu, April 2

Two of four active coronavirus infected people of the country have tested positive for the virus in their second tests, according to the Shukraraj Tropical and Infectious Disease Hospital in Kathmandu.

The 19-year-old lady from Kathmandu, who had recently returned from France, and the 32-year-old man from Dhading, who had recently returned from the United Arab Emirates, are currently undergoing treatment at the hospital.

With both the people testing positive for the second time, their stay in the hospital apparently lingers. If the second reports had come negative, the hospital could have discharged them this week.

The hospital had collected throat swab samples of both the patients on Tuesday and sent them to the National Public Health Laboratory for the test. The results were announced on Wednesday. However, their health condition is normal now.

They were confirmed as the infected on Monday and Wednesday respectively last week. They had returned home from other countries on March 17 and 19 respectively.
