Mayors recommend government to impose lockdown in Kathmandu Valley, again

 The Valley Municipal Forum (VMF) today recommended to impose a strict lockdown in the Kathmandu Valley to contain the rising Covid-19 cases as the festivals will see crowd.

The Forum has advised the government to impose the third phase of lockdown in the Valley after Tihar and Chhath festivals as the Covid-19 cases are making new records every day, according to VMF.

During a meeting with the Covid-19 Crisis Management Center (CCMC) today, the Forum concluded that the government needs to impose a strict lockdown to break the chain of transmission in the Valley.

“It is very necessary for the government to break the transmission chain,” the Forum concluded, advising the government to increase testing and make contact tracing effective, during the lockdown period.
