Nepal is now reporting about more than 20 deaths as per reporting by red cross on daily Covid-19 cases per 100,000 people -- about the same number as India was reporting two weeks ago and public should be alert too. People are still not aware of the danger ahead. No one is safe unless every one is safe. Information flow is still not adequate specially in rural areas to make people realise the disaster they will be facing.
Sealing of border is not be possible.
With the kind of open borders, covid escalation is inevitable. Nepal government is fully aware of this through visual technology and yet the planning is poor.
What is happening in India right now is a horrifying preview of Nepal's future if we cannot contain this latest Covid surge that is claiming more lives by the minute,
All it takes is a nudge or gentle push, for the Public Health System, to collapse like a pack of cards in Nepal too very soon. Please listen to the warnings of Nepalese medical doctors.
"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."- Buddha
Bad news travels faster than good news especially in our society!!?
Don't be so quick to believe what you hear, because lies spread quicker than the truth.
We should have high standards in verifying the information we hear. What we hear might just be out of some uninformed judgment.
