The government has urged all not to get COVID-19 tested on suspicion right after a travel history. Reports may not be accurate when one gets tested for the virus at least five days when they have come in direct contact with the infected ones, said Spokesperson for the Ministry of Health and Population, Prof Dr Jageshwor Gautam.
He said that those who have a travel history should stay at a quarantine facility for two weeks and inform the local level once they show symptoms.
There is no need to get tested for the infection until those who have a travel history do not show symptoms for two weeks, he said at the regular media briefing here on Saturday. Asking people to travel only on an emergency occasion, he urged visitors to follow health guidelines during a journey.
Referring to reports about landlords in the Kathmandu Valley asking tenants to have a PCR test report for accommodation, he asked landlords to make arrangements for isolation for those who have a travel history.
