COVID-19 URGENT APPEAL
The Covid-19 pandemic has been spreading across the globe since March 2020. In the first months of the pandemic, Nepal experienced a complete lockdown in order to control the virus. A first spike of disease was avoided at this time, but the lives of the Nepalese were economically adversely affected through secondary consequences of a lockdown. Now, Nepal is experiencing a sharp increase in both community cases and deaths from the virus.
