With the news of the two deaths from coronavirus, our nightmare has been brought into reality. How dearly had we hoped for this scene to appear in our nightmares only, has now surfaced into reality? This is just the beginning of what could turn out to be an uphill struggle for Nepal. To control the spread of the deadly virus, the government has decided to tighten the lockdown even more. After surveying the current situation of the pandemic, the state government will decide on the modality of the lockdown. If the lockdown isn’t handled properly, it will invite inevitable chaos, and chaos is a ladder that only rises with time. 

As the lockdown increases, the economy crashes. As a result, people are likely to suffer from food and water scarcity, and if strict actions are not taken, hunger is likely to affect people as much as the COVID-19. 

After the death news of two patients, more fear has climbed on our hearts and mental pressure has taken its toll. On the other hand, fear has made people more careful, enabling them to take precautions more seriously.
China's top respiratory expert Zhong Nanshan warns of the potential second wave of COVID-19. Will Nepal control the spread of the virus effectively and protect as many victims as possible?
