Although they gathered in groceries in the early days, they now seem to be aware. They try to avoid crowds. They rarely buy market goods, rather use domestic products.
In the district headquarters, only a few shops selling foodstuff and medicines are open. Pharmacies are open round the clock, however, groceries are allowed to open at the fixed time period helping the local administration to manage the crowd.
Vehicular movement has completely stopped except for ambulances and other emergency vehicles. Not only district headquarters, but other major cities along BP Koirala Highway are wearing deserted look.
