Birendranagar: Corona infection has been confirmed in 12 more people in Karnali on Tuesday. All those confirmed on Tuesday are from Surkhet. There are 10 Virendranagar municipalities and 2 Simta villages. Dumbar Khadka has told.
According to him, the PCR test of the swabs taken randomly from Babai and Subbakuna checkpoints and open quarantine showed a positive report. Now, the total number of infected people in Karnali is 23.
Dr. Stating that the situation in Karnali is becoming dire, Khadka urged the Nepali government to hand over the responsibility of quarantine at the border to the Nepal Army in time. Lately, there has been an infection in people entering from India.
The Karnali state government has also urged the government of Nepal and the Central Disaster Management Committee to make arrangements for testing and quarantining Nepalis coming from India in the border areas. The state government estimates that about 25,000 Karnali residents will return home after the Indian government makes it easier to reach the border.
