PARSA: The government is preparing to seal all the mosques in Birgunj after tree Jamaatis were found infected with Covid-19 in the district.

Three cases were confirmed yesterday after three Jamaatis who were hiding in a mosque tested positive for the COVID-19, said the Ministry of Health and Population.

With the new cases, the number of infection cases has reached 12 in Nepal.

They were living in a mosque  based in Birgunj Metropolis-2 and have been put in isolation at Narayani Hospital, according the Ministry.
