It was 7:30 am and BP Highway, that links Kathmandu Valley with the Eastern Terai region at Bhaktapur was jam packed with vehicles. The exact location from Chundevi to Adharsa Jagati, which had never seen such a traffic jam in normal days, except for Dashain, was congested on Sunday. 

And the reason is public traveling outside the Valley, after the government has announced that long distance travel is banned after Sunday. Amid the fear of coronavirus, public is returning home to be with their family as schools, colleges and organizations have been closed as precaution measures.
