KATHMANDU, June 4: The Embassy of Nepal in London said it sent a letter to the UK-based Daily Mail newspaper regarding a baseless claim about the origin of a mutant strain of SARS-Cov-2 in Nepal.
The embassy has also asked the British tabloid to correct the news.
Issuing a press release, the Embassy of Nepal in London maintained that the variants of concern identified in Nepal so far are Alpha and Delta, both of which did not originate in Nepal.
The World Health Organization and The Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) also refuted the detection and presence of a new variant in the country.
The British tabloid on Thursday reported that ‘the country’s foreign holiday was under threat due to Nepal variant’.
