Kathmandu: Public and private vehicles will be barred from plying in the Kathmandu Valley after 8 pm beginning on Thursday in view of Covid-19 risk. However, vehicles for essential services are allowed to operate 24 hours.

The prohibitory order has been extended until August 24 coming into effect from today. A meeting of Chief District Officers of three districts in the Valley (Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur) took a decision in this regard.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health and Population has warned of a third wave of infection.
