Nepal coronavirus death toll climbs to 102; over 26,000 infected

Nepal has registered a total of 102 deaths from the novel coronavirus so far, according to the Ministry of Health and Population.

Jageshwor Gautam, a Ministry spokesperson said, “Death toll from the pandemic reached 102 after three new deaths were reported in the last 24 hours”.

On May 16, Nepal reported the first death from the pandemic — a 29-year-old woman.

The Ministry has reported 468 new cases, taking the total to 26,019.

After the lockdown was lifted late in July allowing almost all economic and social activities to operate largely without restrictions, the death toll also started to climb rapidly along with cases.
