Health workers and the UN have expressed concern about the risk of elevated tropin levels in Nepali communities as Nepal’s government seeks to curb coronavirus transmission in the Himalayan country.
The Nepali government said Tuesday that the coronaviruses in Nepal are at the lowest level ever recorded in the country, which has been plagued by outbreaks of the virus.
The World Health Organization has said there has been an outbreak in some regions of the country but said the coronvirus is no longer the biggest threat to public health.
Health officials and the United Nations have warned of an increased risk of death due to coronaviral disease in the Nepalese capital Kathmandu, which is now the epicenter of the pandemic.
Health workers are seeking treatment at a clinic in Kathmandukhar district on February 27, 2019, as a coronavirais epidemic sweeps through Nepal.
The epidemic has left thousands homeless.
