Nepal continues to have one of the highest rates of confirmed deaths per capita anywhere in Asia during this tragic second wave of COVID-19. Test positivity is still high, and only around 10% of the population has gotten a COVID vaccine. According to a report study by One Heart Worldwide , 37.7% of 100 PCR tests yielded positive results. This figure is three times greater than India’s.
Hospitals continue to be severely impacted, and the economic effects of the lockdown continue to have an impact on vulnerable people. The situation has been described as “near-apocalyptic” by health professionals and front-line medical personnel, who are facing shortages of hospital beds and oxygen, the national vaccination program has come to a standstill, and the number of dead has risen to the point that mass cremations are being held.

Everyone was impacted by the Coronavirus, but Nepal is ranked 111th in the world in terms of health security. COVID-19 prevention is not well known in the communities of Nepal. There is need to respond quickly and provide relief by distributing face masks, soap, and raising awareness about the importance of handwashing and maintaining social distance as the only way to rescue Nepal from the new Coronavirus Pandemic.
The second wave of Covid-19 in Nepal is killing a person every 5 minutes, and the health system is in its breaking point.
Because of a scarcity of oxygen and hospital beds, people are dying. The disease has spread from the Indian border to Mt. Everest. As a result, it’s more important than ever to keep over a hundred children and their families safe. Ascertain that they participate in distant learning.
