Do everything possible to save lives. We can think of ‘happy Nepalis and prosperous Nepal’ only if we have a healthy nation. The next few weeks are crucial. We can defeat the virus. We call upon the prime minister to make it his personal mission to bring things under control, and provide hope to the people who are struggling to survive at this hour.

The second wave of the coronavirus has begun to swallow our health systems. Hospitals and health workers in cities like Nepalgunj have been pleading with the government to provide them with the necessary resources to treat the patients. Major hospitals, both public and private, in Kathmandu have said that they have run out of beds and other resources to treat additional COVID-19 patients. Dr Sagar Kumar Rajbhandari, director of Sukraraj Tropical and Infectious Disease Hospital (STIDH), said that hospitals will soon be on the brink of collapse if we do not act now. We have seen Prime Minister Oli violating public health protocols set by the health ministry.
