Govt unlikely to resume flights from August 17

The government has ruled out another complete lockdown, the kind that was imposed on March 24.

Unveiling recent decisions taken by the Cabinet, Spokesperson for the government, Yubaraj Khatiwada said the government was not planning to impose a complete lockdown.

“The government will take further decisions on the basis of COVID situation in specific areas. The government might stop people’s movement in the districts with a high risk of the virus,” he said, “As we are strictly monitoring people’s movement in high-risk districts, we will continue with the same modality to prevent COVID from spreading.”

District administration offices will act depending on the spread of the contagion, added Khatiwada.

He requested the business sector and the general public not to panic.

With the rise in the number of positive COVID cases, people were assuming that the government might impose a complete lockdown again.

While businesses have finally resumed operations gradually, they are in a dilemma with the surge in positive cases in recent days. Addressing this concern, Khatiwada, who is also the finance minister, said the government would facilitate businesses to operate smoothly.Yuba Raj Khatiwada
