On Tuesday, doctors at Sukraraj Tropical and Infectious Disease Hospital decided to take matters into their own hands as people in an overwhelming number stood in queue for hours to get tested for COVID-19.

Doctors said they were by and large helpless as hundreds of people were spending nights on the hospital premises, under staircases and the passage, waiting for their turn to give samples. They were waiting without food.

“We decided to collect money on our own so that we could provide some food to them,” said Dr Sagar Rajbhandari, director at the hospital. “We felt really bad that there were small children waiting in line for days.”
