PDF File Size: 83 KB | Download   
• According to the latest figures released by the Government of Nepal as of midday 30 April 2015, the death toll following the earthquake has risen to 489 . A total of 965 people have been injured.

• The MOHP has prioritized two new districts (Makawanpur and Sindhuli) for urgent health assistance, bringing the total number of priority districts to 13.

• Rapid health assessment teams have surveyed the status of 20 hospitals in eight affected districts and are analysing the results. The assessment report will be presented to the Ministry of Health and Population (MOPH) t o morrow.

• There is no definitive information on the number of internally displaced people (IDPs) and their specific health needs. The Camp Coordination and Camp Management Cluster is assessing humanitarian needs in the IDP camps in Kathmandu Valley. A UN Disaster Assessment and Coordination team is assessing the situation outside the valley.

• A total of official camps have been established in Kathmandu Valley. Military medical teams from Nepal and Bangladesh are providing health care and establishing basic water and sanitation facilities in the camps. The camp inhabitants comprise people whose houses have been destroyed or damaged as well as those whose houses are intact but who remain fearful of new earthquakes and aftershocks. Water and sanitation are a major concern.

• The continuing rainfall is hampering relief efforts, creating miserable living conditions in the camps, and giving rise to concerns over potential outbreaks of waterborne and diarrhoeal diseases. WHO is helping the MOHP to strengthen disease surveillance and investigate and respond to communicable disease alerts .

• WHO and the MOHP are investigating reports of a diarrhoeal disease outbreak affecting around 100 people in an IDP camp on the southern outskirts of the Kathmandu Valley. Samples have been collected and sent for laboratory testing. No cases of watery or bloody diarrhoea have been reported. The MOHP is monitoring the situation closely.

• The MOHP and Health Cluster partners are providing health care services in makeshift shelters and tents in the worst affected districts.

• More than 60 foreign medical teams have arrived in the country. Their capacities and areas of expertise are being mapped and matched against needs on the ground. The MOHP has indicated that no additional foreign medical teams should be deployed until this mapping exercise has been completed.
