Prime Minister and Chairperson of the CPN-UML KP Sharma Oli has directed the entire party committee to unite against Covid-19. "The Prime Minister has directed a unity and mobilisation of party committee at local and district levels to fight against the virus," said party spokesperson Pradeep Kumar Gyawali. PM Oli issued this directive at the third meeting of the 10th UML National General Convention organising committee in Baluwatar today.
The PM directed preparedness against the deadly virus variants at district level while the government itself was at its maximum efforts in this regard, said Gyawali, also Minister for Foreign Affairs.
The meeting was apprised of the conclusion taken by the Covid-19 Crisis Management Center's extended meeting held on Saturday evening in the presence of PM Oli. Issues discussed in the meeting were management of oxygen cylinders required for infected and expansion of Covid-19 vaccination among others. "There are not any preparations to impose lockdown that will affect lives of people. Lockdown itself is not a solution. So the government is at work to deal with the infection by making people follow the health safety protocols," said minister Gyawali.
