The prohibitory order in the Kathmandu Valley to prevent and control the COVID-19 pandemic has been in effect for one month.

Officials from the government have stated that, depending on the situation, preparations are being made to extend the order until June 14.

Chief District Officers (CDOs) of Kathmadu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur had jointly imposed the order in the Kathmandu Valley since April 29 as the second wave of COVID-19 took its toll.

During that time, 33,000 vehicles and 1,800 people were subjected to action.

Around 5,000 security personnel have been mobilized to enforce the prohibitory order, according to the Metropolitan Police Office, Ranipokhari.

After the COVID-19 cases did not subside, Kathmandu’s CDO, Kali Prasad Parajuli, said the probitory order was strengthened for the fourth time.

According to Parajuli, the order will be extended depending on the situation.
