POKHARA, April 14: A huge number of domestic tourists thronged the lake city, Pokhara, on the occasion of the Nepali New year 2078.

Lakeside of Pokhara was jam packed with thousands of people despite the government’s orders to avoid such public gatherings.

Such huge gatherings of people barely seen adopting precautions against COVID-19 have raised the fear of rapid transmission of COVID-19.

Earlier, the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) projected Nepal’s COVID-19 case tally to surpass 600,000 over the next three months with a daily rise of more than 11,000 cases based on the current COVID-19 infection trend of the country.
