By TRN Online, Kathmandu, May. 7: Minister for Communications and Information Technology and government’s spokesperson Parbat Gurung said that the government was preparing to form a door-to-door team for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

“When a person becomes ill after contracting the virus, he might remain unassisted as his/her family members stay in isolation for contact tracing. Thus, we are working to form a door-to-door team to provide care to those patients,” said Minister Gurung.

Moreover, he informed that an isolation centre with 500 beds was being constructed at Bir Hospital.

Speaking on the occasion of the sixth National Journalism Day, Minister Gurung said, “A special team of journalists is also being formed to disseminate positive information among the public.”
