KATHMANDU: Minister for Foreign Affairs, also the spokesperson of the government, Pradeep Gyawali has asserted that the country was currently grappling with health and economic crisis.

In a press conference organized here today to make public the decisions of the cabinet meetings on September 4 and September 14, Minister Gyawali warned that a huge crisis could befall the country if the economic and health crisis were not duly addressed.

“Every day around 1,000 persons contracting COVID-19, daily deaths due to the Coronavirus among others have indicated that the COVID-19 graph was yet to reach the peak and start to flatten. Each citizen should consider themselves a soldier fighting COVID-19 in the forefront,” said Minister Gyawali.

Nepal recorded a total of 56,788 COVID-19 cases as of today. Altogether 371 COVID-19 infected persons have died of the deadly infection as of today.

The Minister expressed his dissatisfaction over some media interpreting COVID-19 as a regular infection and cautioned that such misleading information could puzzle the general public.

On the occasion, he urged one and all to observe health safety measures against the COVID-19.
