Nepal government failed its people when it comes to protecting them from COVID-19 pandemic, human rights organisations have said.

The response of Nepal government to the pandemic hasn’t been as per its constitutional obligations and international commitment to human rights, different human rights organisations said on Friday.

In its briefing paper based on analysis of Nepal government’s approach to dealing with the pandemic, the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), an international human rights organisation, said the government has fallen short of ensuring that it meets the obligations to respect, protect, and fulfil the people’s right to health to the extent required by the Constitution of Nepal, national legislation and international human rights law.
