Nepal bans big public gatherings, closes schools amid COVID spike | Coronavirus pandemic News | Al Jazeera

Officials in Nepal have banned large public gatherings and closed schools across the Himalayan nation for nearly three weeks after a spike in coronavirus cases.

Nepal reported 1,357 new cases on Monday, the biggest single-day jump since September last year, taking its total to 833,946 since the pandemic began. Its death toll from the coronavirus is 11,606.

Home Ministry spokesman Pradip Kumar Koirala said public gatherings such as political rallies and religious functions involving more than 25 people had been prohibited.

“Entry to hotels, restaurants, cinema halls and public offices as well as parks from January 21 will be given to those providing proof of being vaccinated against the coronavirus,” Koirala said.

Earlier, the government ordered schools to close for almost three weeks until January 29.
