District COVID-19 Crisis Management Center (DCCMC) Kailali has imposed restrictions on the movement of people to shop in the border Indian market after the number of infected people increased. This decision was taken in a meeting of the DCCMC on Thursday under the chairmanship of Chief District Officer Kailali Kiran Thapa.

Earlier, the local people used to openly go to border markets Gaurifanta, Bangaon and Palia. Shivraj Joshi, information officer of Kailali district administration, said that this decision was taken because the corona infection rate is increasing in India, and Nepalis from Kailali go there daily.

He said that the DCCMC has recommended to the district administration to stop cross-border activities due to shopping and other activities. Information officer Joshi told that if it is necessary to go, then the vaccination card against Corona will be allowed to go only after showing it.

In a similar meeting, the previous order of not holding programs of more than 25 people has been continued. Vaccination cards against Kovid will be made mandatory from Wednesday in public places including hotels, restaurants, cinema halls, stadiums, air travel, parks.

It has also been decided that teaching will not be done in physical presence and pre-determined semester and annual examination will be conducted by adopting health norms. In public transport, there has been a call not to carry passengers more than the seat capacity, not to carry passengers without masks and to use all kinds of norms.
