 Reports & Guidelines  

  • Enhanced Surveillance On Sero-Prevalence Of Sars-Cov-2 in the General Population
    The study is the first serosurvey conducted from a planned series of seroprevalence studies for COVID-19 in Nepal. Research has found an estimated national seroprevalence was 14.4% (95% CI, 11.8-17.0). The actual infection prevalence is far greater than the observed case prevalence observed through routine surveillance systems (English).

  • Rapid Hospital Readiness Facility Assessment Checklist for COVID-19
    The assessment report presents the fifteen key components that play a crucial role in better hospital management. It also considers how prolonged outbreaks such as COVID-19 can result in increasing service demands that may potentially overwhelm the capacity of hospitals and health systems at large (English).

  • Reduce Your Risk
    The ministry has developed 15 posters that explain the preventative measures for COVID-19; this information includes information regarding food safety, wet markets, and traveling (English).
