As government and private hospitals in Kathmandu fill up with Covid-19 patients, some of them are offering rented hotel rooms or home care to meet the surge of the seriously sick.

Even then, these extensions of the hospitals can only cater to patients with milder symptoms, and there is no room in the ICUs if their condition gets worse.
 
On Monday, the Ministry of Health announced that all remaining government hospitals in Kathmandu Valley would be converted to Covid-19 centres, and all ICU beds and ventilators would be consolidated.
