Finally, Kathmandu Valley has started to lead in the tally with 92 new cases recorded on Sunday. The Ministry of Health and Population has confirmed 92 new cases of COVID-19 in Kathmandu Valley today.
Experts argue that this will likely increase in the coming days given the current trends and negligence of the government to take concrete measures to stop the spread of the virus at the community level.
Health experts have already warned that the situation may go out of control if things continue to go unchecked.
In 8,515 Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) tests done in the last 24 hours, 92 persons were found with the virus infection in the valley itself.
