A recommendation has been made to impose a prohibitory order in Banke after a record spike in coronavirus cases in the district.

Banke's Covid-19 Crisis Management Committee, on Tuesday, decided to recommend a prohibitory order in the district keeping in mind the rapidly rising cases of the infection.

It is yet to be decided whether the order will be issued in the entire district or selected areas.

With the district witnessing a steady rise in number of patients, health facilities are getting exhausted for the past one week.

Banke is now identified as a Covid-19 highly affected district.
