Nepal COVID-19 SitRep 45

This report is produced by Office of the Resident Coordinator in collaboration with partners. It covers the period from 17- 30 July 2021.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • With rising COVID-19 cases coupled with fewer partners engaged in the response, there is a potential for gap between needs and response to widen dramatically.
  • Need to prioritize PPE in non-COVID-19 service delivery points for continuity of essential services.
  • Over 45 water supply schemes are reportedly affected by floods and landslides countrywide, including Melamchi Water Supply Project, addressing water supply needs of Kathmandu Valley.
  • Lack of adherence to public health and social measures by leaders at provincial and local levels has constrained promotion of practices among the general public.
  • Road obstruction due to flooding and landslides has delayed COVID-19 and monsoon response in various parts of the country.
  • Clusters are responding to localized flooding in affected municipalities in provinces One and Two.
