Maiya Sainju is the in-charge of urban health clinic at the office of Ward No. 32 of Kathmandu Metropolitan City. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, she has been assigned the duty of contact tracing, which entails informing the infected people about their infection, enquiring about the family members and others who came in their close contacts, checking the facilities for the infected people to stay in home isolation, and taking updates on their health.

But with cases rising, Sainju has not been going out these days for the fear of getting exposed to the virus.

Like Sainju, most of the health workers deputed for contact tracing are doing their job over the phone.
