KATHMANDU: The Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) has issued a circular calling for strict enforcement of public health protocols outlining the heightened risk of COVID-19 spread Tuesday.

The MoHA has written to District Administration Offices (DAOs) across the country, urging them to do necessary preparation keeping in view the rising number of cases of the coronavirus in bordering Indian States and the risk it posed to Nepal.

The MoHA circular comes on the heels of the Ministry of Health and Population’s COVID-19 update Sunday.

The MoHA has ordered bordering district administrations to tighten security along the Nepal-India border, maintain records of people entering Nepal from India, and manage necessary health safety protocols, among other measures, to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

The MoHA has also directed DAOs to establish and ready isolation and quarantine centers for infected people. It has also asked DAOs to enforce health safety protocols such as mandatory use of face masks and sanitizer.

The number of coronavirus cases has been on the rise since Sunday and have significantly risen on Monday and Tuesday.

Sunday saw 77 fresh cases in the country. The number infection rose to 150 Monday and stood at 188 today.
