SINDHUPALCHOWK: The district of Sindhupalchowk has banned the import of vegetables and fruits from beyond the district in view of increasing risks of COVID-19.

A meeting of the COVID-19 Disaster Management Centre prohibited the transport of vegetables and fruits from outside district citing security threats stemming from COVID-19 outbreak.

Chief District Officer Umesh Kumar Dhakal said that along with the move security vigilance has been stepped up along the entry points of the district.

Dhakal shared that the decision was taken to promote sale of local vegetables and fruits in the market place and call on local levels to take up the coordinating roles.

The vegetables and fruits produced at the local level would be sufficient for the district consumers, he added.
