Coronavirus is escalating in Nepal. It is reported that at least 83,020 Nepali migrant workers have returned from India alone, with at least 400 still entering Nepal daily. India is fourth in the table of the worst Coronavirus hit countries with figures still soaring. Thousands more are returning from the Gulf countries and China.
Nepal's frail health system is struggling with inadequate testing and with thousands heading for the remotes villages, the situation is of huge concern. The Nestling Trust with SITARA their partner NGO, has already provided vital medical equipment, PPE, disinfectant and soap for the Health Posts it has established, but much more is needed to support their work, to quarantine those newly arriving and to ensure needy families have food and soap at this time of crisis.
