KATHMANDU: The Ministry of Health and Population has urged one and all to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in view of the increasing Corona Virus infection.

The Ministry has asked all to take the anti-COVID-19 shots as the infection is increasing daily.

Joint spokesperson of the Ministry Dr. Samir Kumar Adhikari has called on all to take the first, second, and booster dose vaccines considering the increase in the infection cases over the last some days.

In the Kathmandu Valley alone, 15 persons were receiving treatment in isolation, eight in ICU, and five in the ventilator.

Big hospitals in the Valley including in Kathmandu are providing booster dose vaccines at present.
