Nepal's Ministry of Home Affairs has directed security bodies and administration offices under its purview to remain alert as there is a likelihood of COVID-19 further spreading during the festivals.

It has drawn the attention of concerned bodies towards the increased risk of infection during this festival time in the context of its rapid spread in Nepal. This has added challenges in its prevention, control and management.

The ministry has directed Chief District Officers and chiefs of district-based security bodies not to leave their districts even during Dashain with a view to mitigating the risk because it is likely to increase with the growing movement of people during Dashain, Tihar, Chhat and Nepal Sambat, among others.
