The health facilities in Nepal are already over stressed and many hospitals have a lack of oxygen and other essential facilities necessary for effective Covid-19 treatment. Even regular medical services are heavily under stress at the moment.

    • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth
    • Stay 6 feet from others and avoid crowds
    • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer
