Maps released by the CCMC also show a higher number of infections among residents of Kalanki, Koteswor, Pulchok, Sinamangal, Chabahil, Narayan Tole, Naya Bazar and Bansatpur Dabar Square. The maps were prepared from data a week ago, and experts say the red areas would be even more extensive if the latest data was used.
