Essential services and transportation of food supplies to continue


By TRN Online, Kathmandu, Mar. 25: The meeting of the High Level Coordination Committee to prevent and control COVID-19 held today decided to continue essential banking services and transportation of medicine, food, water, fruits, vegetables and fodder supplies for fish and animals.

The public, however, cannot travel by the vehicles used for transportation of essential goods.

The wards at the local levels should manage the transportation and selling of milk, vegetables, fruits and other food supplies.

The local levels have been directed to prevent crowding of people in shops, use of masks and sanitisers and maintenance of physical distance between the buyers and sellers.

According to the press statement issued after the meeting, the concerned industries should provide transportation services to those labourers involved in medicine production and gas bottling.

Likewise, the meeting has also requested big grocerries to implement home delivery systems.
