Weekly highlights:
1. The monsoon continues to exacerbate the spread of waterborne diseases, with the number of confirmed cholera cases reaching 40 in the Kathmandu Valley and Nuwakot, according to local media. In Gorkha, the Ministry of Health and Population reported over 50 cases of jaundice in children, although hepatitis had not been detected by lab tests.
2. The Government has drafted new guidelines for building construction, including 55 standards, such as the designation of a minimum proportion of open space around residential and public buildings.
3. Government-led evacuations occurred in Gorkha, Kabhrepalanchok, and Rasuwa in the past two weeks, according to local media sources. In Kabhrepalanchok, the Government announced that evacuations had been completed. Humanitarian partners, however, are preparing for the possibility for people to return to settlement sites during the winter.
4. In response to the agreement on provincial boundaries and the on-going drafting of the
constitution, protests and bandhs intensified this week and resulted in several deaths in the Mid-Western Region and Terai. While unrest is currently concentrated outside the earthquake-affected areas, the unrest disrupts transport, economic activities, and the provision of assistance
5. UN Humanitarian Air Services’ (UNHAS) budget shortfall persists, despite an ECHO contribution, and without additional funding, air support is expected to stop at the end of August. The suspension of air services is expected to affect 146,000 people residing in hard-to-reach areas in the north, including those have been assessed to be severely impacted by the earthquakes and monsoon.
