KATHMANDU, May 10: Nepal has been witnessing an alarmingly high number of new infections of the coronavirus disease on a daily basis as the country is hit hard by the second wave of this viral infection starting mid-April.
“If anyone suspected the COVID-19 infection, they would come to Teku hospital and even other hospitals would refer people to this hospital for consultation,” recalls Sher Bahadur Pun, Clinical Research Unit Coordinator at Sukraraj Tropical and Infectious Disease Hospital. According to him, in the initial stage, Kathmandu was shocked after a family that travelled from the UK tested positive for COVID-19. The next day, people lined up at Teku hospital to get tested for COVID-19.
