At a meeting called to discuss the government’s further steps to contain the spread of COVID-19, experts suggested that the government should reimpose lockdown to ensure that the pandemic is checked. The health experts further suggested Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, who had convened the meeting, to issue curfew orders if necessary.

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli held a discussion with public health experts and leaders of the opposition to decide whether or not to impose the second round of lockdown, at his official residence in Baluwatar, today.

The experts were of the opinion that the situation — with increasing number of cases — could go out of hands if a timely call on precautionary measure was not taken, a Baluwatar source said.

There has been a surge in the number of reported cases in various parts of the country including the capital city. As many as 62 cases were reported in the Kathmandu valley alone on Tuesday.

The government imposed nationwide lockdown had lasted from March 24 to July 21.
