KATHMANDU: The Ministry of Health and Population has urged for seven-day isolation in case of COVID-19 infection.

Ministry Joint Spokesperson Dr Samir Kumar Adhikari said isolation for seven days is mandated if one has fever and breathing complications in COVID-19.

As he said, in the case of asymptomatic infection, isolation is not mandatory.

Likewise, a person who has already spent five days or more than five days in isolation and has no fever in the past 24 hours does not require isolation.

Any infected upon the completion of the seven-day isolation is recommended for maintaining physical distance from others for some days and those in isolation are urged to use a well-ventilated separate room and a separate toilet as much as possible, to wear a mask appropriately and manage it properly after use and to wash hands time and again with soap and water.

The cases of COVID-19 are soaring lately. On Tuesday, 171 new cases were traced with the new deaths from the virus. Now, the number of active cases is 397.
