Kathmandu still remains the district with the most number of live Covid-19 cases in Nepal while the number of active infections is around 6000 in the valley.

At present Morang, Sunsari, Sarlahi, Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Bhaktapur Chitwan and Rupandehi are the only five districts with over 500 active infections.

Likewise, seven districts — Dolpa, Mugu, Humla, Solukhumbu, Myagdi, Mustang and Manang— have zero active infections, on today’s date.

The prohibitory order that was imposed on August 19 in the valley and later extended for a week to cut down further spread of infections was eased last week.

Nine coronavirus related fatalities have been recorded in the last 24 hours taking the country’s Covid-19 death-toll to 345.
