Nepal Government not to bear expenses of all COVID-19 patients, not to bury those dead due to virus

Amid the continuous surge in COVID-19 cases, the Nepal government has decided not to bear expenses of all virus-infected people and not to bury infected people who died during home isolation.

The decision, which was made earlier week by KP Sharma Oli-led administration, has been made public on Sunday through the daily COVID-19 briefing held by Ministry of Health and Population.

Decided during a Cabinet meeting, a list of people completing certain criteria will be getting the facilities from the government.

The latest decision has gone into effect for all government, non-government hospitals and laboratories from Sunday itself.

The new decision has left more than 25 per cent of the population (statistics from ADB, 2010) deprived of proper tests for COVID-19 infection.
