MoHP Sunday reports lowest COVID-19 infection since second-wave

2021 Oct 11, 19:30, Kathmandu

Ministry of Health and Population Sunday reported the lowest COVID-19 infection since the second wave of the pandemic. The infection rate was less than five per cent. According to the Ministry of Health and Population, on Sunday, 596 out of 12,404 tested positive for the virus.

In the past month, the infection has slowed down by 60 per cent. In the third week of August, the number of active cases was 40,338 and it fell to 15,942 in the third week of September.

The COVID-19 inoculation drive, people’s eagerness to follow the public health protocols against the virus, and the government’s policy to contain the pandemic are said to be the factors behind the downfall of the infection. Primarily, the mass vaccination drive is said to be a reason for controlling the virus.

Similarly, 81 percent population in three districts in the Kathmandu Valley— Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur--have received the first dose of vaccine and 74 per cent have been fully jabbed.
