So far there have only been few confirmed corona cases in Nepal. A potential large-scale outbreak, however, would have a serious effect on the health system. Our local partner International Nepal Fellowship (INF) is making contingency plans for a potential spread in its hospitals in Pokhara, Nepalgunj and Surkhet.

On the 24th of March, the government announced a nationwide lockdown. To organize testing, quarantine and medical treatment they will co-operate with several bodies. Those include provincial governments, hospitals, media and NGOs, such as Red Cross, World Health Organization and INF Nepal. There are also additional clinics specializing in corona treatment (for example ear clinics). INF is working together with the government to ensure essential equipment, such as protective masks. For COVID-19 treatment, they also provide doctors, nurses and ambulances. Together they are also informing the public on essential relevant health and hygiene information via press releases and the internet. The media can draw on INF's many years of experience as first aid in the event of disasters.

INF has also introduced several safety precautions. Employees and patients may only enter the office after washing their hands. Before entering the building the body temperature is taken. Due to the lack of surgical masks, the production and sale of masks made from fabric have already started in the INF branch in Surkhet. They also manifacture hand sanitizers and distribute them to other INF facilities. .

Actions such as these are essential in curbing the spread of the virus across the country. Support us with your donation!
