A ‘health desk’ has been brought into operation at Jamunaha, the transit point at the Nepal-India border in Banke district, to prevent the entry of coronavirus infection.
People entering Nepal through this transit point would be tested to check for coronavirus infection, Dilli Raj Pokharel, chief of the public health section at the Nepalgunj Sub-metropolitan City, said.
Two health workers have been assigned to operate the health desk. The health desk will especially examine the health of people suffering from fever, flu and suspected coronavirus infection entering Nepal from this transit point. Two infra-red thermometers would be used for this purpose, Pokharel said.
