Although Nepal has not been much affected by the Corona Virus so far – there is only one confirmed case until now – the Nepalese government and our partner organisation PHASE Nepal are preparing contingency plans to contain its effects. PHASE Nepal strongly relies on information and awareness raising among its staff and among the communities they work in, as well as planning ahead for the probable needs in additional material and medication.
Nevertheless, we will have to expect the incidence to rise in Nepal as well, which means an additional burden on an already weak healthcare system. This will affect our projects, and most of all PHASE Nepal’s staff. PHASE Austria is in continuous contact with PHASE Nepal and will keep you informed of any developments.
