Prohibitory orders enforced in Kathmandu Valley for 15 days


As hospital beds started to get overwhelmed due to the shortage of oxygen and ventilators with coronavirus cases and related death tolls surging daily, the three District Administration Offices in the Kathmandu Valley have issued prohibitory orders for 15 days from Thursday placing restrictions on various services and activities in the Kathmandu Valley.

Earlier, Chief District Officers of three districts had recommended to enforce a week long prohibitory orders but the cabinet decided to extend for 15 days.

Recently, Kathmandu valley has become a hotspot. Of the total 3,442 new cases reported in the country for past 24 hours, 1912 cases were reported from the valley only.

According to the prohibitory orders, operation of private vehicles, public transportation, conference, seminars, training centers, cinema halls, party palaces, swimming pools, shopping malls, entertainment sites, saloons, beauty parlors, gym and fitness centers, sports activities, libraries and zoos is restricted.  Entry of vehicles is restricted in the district except for ambulances and those vehicles carrying emergency goods, medics and medicine supplies.  Shops and business outlets will be shut down except for those selling food stuff, medicines and medical equipment. Grocery Stores and Department Stores will remain open until 10 AM in the morning and between 5 PM to 7 PM in the evening.
