The coronavirus death toll of Nepalis living in 21 countries stands at 341.

A press release issued by the NRNA from London said that a total of 63,307 Nepalis had been infected with the respiratory disease in 53 foreign countries till date. Of them, 62,237 have already recovered from the disease.

A clinically recovered COVID-19 patient should test negative for the virus twice in a gap of at least 24 hours.

Meanwhile, the NRNA has appealed to all Nepalis to take the COVID-19 vaccine shot in the concerned countries where they are living, besides following health safety guidelines to prevent the infection from spreading.
