.

“We have received reports of 17 climbers infected with the new coronavirus from the hospital in the capital Kathmandu,” Sherpa, an official of Nepal Himalayan Rescue Association, said, according to India’s print and BBC reports on the 5th

.

We now ask the expedition team to let us know what happened before they send the sick members to Kathmandu

.

” Sherpa’s colleagues at the Everest base clinic, Dr

.

Karel, said that the number of people with symptoms of new coronavirus infection such as persistent cough and fever is increasing every day, and medical staff should ensure that those with symptoms are isolated

.

The leader of an expedition also told the media that although cough is very common among climbers, some people also have fever, body pain and other symptoms

.

The BBC says the number of new cases in Nepal has risen sharply in recent weeks, with the highest infection rate among India’s neighbors

.

Mountaineers worry that if the epidemic breaks out on Mount Everest, it will cause “devastating consequences”“ “Mini India”? Novel coronavirus pneumonia confirmed the latest deterioration in Nepal, according to statistics released by local Ministry of health and population in the afternoon of May 5th

.

In the past 24 hours, 8659 confirmed cases of novel coronavirus pneumonia were confirmed in Nepal, 58 new cases were killed, and two data refreshed the latest record since the outbreak of Nepal

.

This is the first time that the number of new cases in a single day in Nepal has exceeded 8000, and it is the record of new cases in a single day for four consecutive days

.

A person in charge of a public hospital in Kathmandu disclosed that they only have enough liquid oxygen until the end of May

.

Oxygen shortage, burning bodies everywhere

.

Some experts say that Nepal is becoming a “mini India”

.

Regional blockade and flight stoppage   Novel coronavirus pneumonia has been adopted by Nepal government to take measures to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus pneumonia

.

As of the afternoon of May 4, 45 of Nepal’s 77 counties have adopted blockades to varying degrees

.

The blockade of the capital Kathmandu Valley will be extended to midnight on May 12

.

During the blockade, people will try their best not to go out of their homes except in necessary emergencies; Buses and private cars are not allowed to go on the road, only vehicles transporting food, medicine, drinking water and other necessities are allowed to travel

.

  Nepal stopped the operation of domestic commercial passenger flights from midnight on the 3rd, and will stop the operation of major international passenger flights from 23:59 pm on the 5th, but will allow two round trips a week between Delhi and Kathmandu

.

  The sudden increase of cases is related to the opening of the border between India and Nepal

.

The border between Nepal and India is open

.

The citizens of the two countries only need to hold their own national identity cards to pass through the customs

.

They do not need passports and visas

.

Therefore, the exchanges between Nepalese and Indian citizens are very close

.

After the outbreak in India, some Nepalese citizens working, living and studying in India returned to Nepal, bringing in some cases

.

  For some time, Nepal has been an important transit country for flights from the Middle East, India and other countries

.

Many passengers from these regions transfer to third countries through Nepal

.

As the only international airport in Nepal, tribvan International Airport, does not have the function of transit stop, passengers can enter the capital of Nepal immediately after landing, and there is no need for strict detection and isolation, resulting in a large number of cases imported

.

  Since late March, Nepal has also entered the festival and wedding season

.

Due to the local people’s weak awareness of epidemic prevention, many congregative religious ceremonies, festival activities and wedding parties have been held, which also increases the chance of virus transmission

.

India officials said the third wave of COVID-19 was inevitable, said Vijay Raghavan, chief scientific adviser of the India government, 5, in view of the high level of COVID-19’s dissemination, India will inevitably have third waves of epidemic
