Covid in Gorkha

After 3 months of lock-down covid has now spread throughout Nepal with 15,000 cases (3rd July) but thankfully low deaths of 32 to date. In Gorkha all unwell must go directly to hospital but none have been critically ill, Some nearby villages have been closed if cases found to reduce the spread but worrying times for everyone.
With businesses closed many have no work and no govt financial support as in the UK. There will undoubtedly be increased poverty and hardship and GDS will help when we can when requested, but our school sponsorship programme for example will be even more essential to help those most in need.
