On the day that Nepal detected a second COVID-19 infected patient the Nepal government decided to lockdown the whole country from Tuesday morning at 6AM for one week till 31 March 6AM.
This would be a much stricter stay-at-home order that would bring all movement to a halt and also close all government offices, businesses and shops. All remaining domestic flights and public transport will also stop, and it will bar people from moving about unless it is for medical reasons or to buy essentials.
