With the resurgence of coronavirus in India, more COVID patients are being admitted to Seti Corona Temporary Hospital in Dhangadi.

Now that the transmission of COVID-19 has increased in neighbouring India, Nepalis, who stayed temporarily and worked in India, are returning home. With this, more and more COVID-19 patients are being admitted to the hospital.

According to Seti Provincial Hospital Dhangadi Information Officer Dilip Shrestha, four COVID-19 patients have been admitted to the hospital recently. "All four have a very strong strain of the virus.

While three are being treated in ICU, the fourth is on ventilator support," Shrestha said.

The hospital saw its first COVID-19 patient being admitted on Monday - a 54-year-old man of Punarbas Municipality, Kanchanpur, and two other male patients (aged 44 and 50) of Dhangadi were admitted to the hospital the next day. The fourth patient is a 45-year-old woman, who is the wife of the 50-year-old patient from Dhangadi.
