Nepal COVID-19: Cluster Update #16 | 17 July 2020
PDF File Size: 261 KB | Download   
As of 15 July, 17,344 people have been infected by COVID-19 in Nepal. Among them, 39 have died, 11,249 have recovered, and 6,056 are currently in isolation. Additionally, 23,500 people are currently in quarantine. The surveillance report of Epidemiology and Disease Control Division (EDCD) shows a decline in the rolling 7-day average of cases from 2 July. This could indicate a real decrease in cases, partly attributable to declining numbers of returnees from abroad. However, the surveillance program must now work to rule out any and all other factors that could be contributing to this apparent decrease. Such factors may include fewer samples collected since 2 July, backlog of collected samples pending testing in labs, as well as decreased occupancy in quarantine and isolation centres, from which samples should be collected. As case numbers decline, surveillance must be more sensitive to detect any potential uptick in cases1 .

The majority of COVID-19 tests performed to date have been on returning Nepali migrants. Tests were concentrated on returnees as part of the Government strategy to prioritize those most likely to have been exposed to the virus. New guidelines have been developed to test additional groups, such as health workers, police officials and bank employees – referred to as frontline workers – who have greater exposure to the public and thus higher chances of becoming infected. The Government is also considering random testing in the ten districts with the most identified cases to determine if any cases are going undetected. The Government is in the first phase of shifting to this new strategy.
