A cabinet meeting was made some time ago, a minister said.
The lockdown, announced for a week, has been exacerbated by the government’s rise in infections after it was discovered. The lockdown announced by the government on Thursday, May 3 was about to expire. There have been 16 cases of infection in Nepal so far. Only two people staying at Sun City Apartments in the capital have been confirmed today.
Similarly, the cabinet also discussed whether to let those who were trapped due to lockdown and to leave their homes in the capital due to lack of work. According to the source, the government has decided not to provide any such exemption as lockdown will be loosened due to such transit. Today, neighboring India has announced an increase in lockdown for 90 days.
