The COVID-19 Crisis Management Centre (CCMC) in Nepal sent its recommendation for lifting all the restrictions that were earlier placed on different sectors to contain the spread of the coronavirus, reported The Himalayan Times.

In a meeting of the CCMC, held on Monday, the body decided to remove all the restrictions that the government had put in place on March 24. Most of the sectors already resumed their operations in phased manners. The restrictions remain in place for sectors like education, cinema hall, and exhibitions.

The committee also noted the steep decline in fresh cases in the last month.

“The infection rate has declined to 12 to 13 percent in the last couple of weeks from the previous 19 to 20 percent. Similarly, the number of active cases in the country is also less than 6,000 as hospitals are now seeing empty beds. In this scenario, we have recommended that the government lift the lockdown.” Mahendra Prasad Guragain, the coordinator of CCMC, was quoted as saying by The Himalayan Times.

He also said if we witness a surge in cases in certain areas, we would reimpose lockdown and restriction in those areas only.
