The Ministry of Health and Population has urged for a seven-day isolation in case of COVID-19 infection.
Ministry Joint Spokesperson Dr Samir Kumar Adhikari said the isolation for seven days is mandated if one has fever and breathing complications in COVID-19.
As he said, in case of asymptomatic infection, isolation is not mandatory. Likewise, a person who has already spent five days or more than five days in isolation and no fever in the past 24 hours does not require isolation.
Any infected upon the completion of the seven-day isolation is recommended for maintaining physical distance with others for some days and those in isolation are urged to use a well-ventilated separate room and a separate toilet as much as possible, to wear a mask appropriately and manage it properly after use and to wash hands time and again with soap and water.
The cases of COVID-19 are soaring lately. On Tuesday, 171 new cases were traced with the new deaths from the virus. Now, the number of actives cases is 397.
