Main opposition Nepali Congress (NC) has demanded the government ensure arrangement for effective security screening and quarantines so as to prevent the outbreak of coronavirus.

Issuing a press release today, NC's COVID-19 Monitoring Committee has cautioned the government towards the reemergence of coronavirus and the possible entrance of a new variant into the country.

NC's joint-secretary and committee coordinator Prakash Sharan Mahat called for the government to ensure immediate supply of health appliances and equipment keeping into consideration the increasing number of COVID-19 cases, the press release added.

NC has demanded widening the scope of contact tracing and testing of potentially infected people, effectively implementing vaccination campaign with a definite timeline and taking high-level diplomatic efforts for ensuring the import of vaccine.

The NC has also demanded the government implement an insurance and risk allowance package targeting health workers and addressing the deficit number of human resource at the hospitals.

The country cannot bear the status of lockdown again, he said, adding that the health security measures should be strictly implemented in the current situation.
