Covid crisis reaches Nepal with a surge in cases and hospitalizations

As Covid-19 ravages India, there’s new fear that neighboring Nepal is starting to suffer a similar fate. Cases have been exploding in the country over the last few weeks. On Friday, the World Health Organization’s director-general, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, expressed worry about the unfolding crisis. “India remains hugely concerning,” he said at a news briefing. “But it’s not only India that has emergency needs. Nepal, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Egypt are just some of the countries that…
