COVID-19 Surveillance System service coverage expanded

It is our pleasure to expand the COVID-19 Surveillance System across the Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur districts after the series of online meetings. The Kathmandu Valley consists of 21 municipalities (2 Metropolitan City, 16 municipalities and 3 rural municipalities). Along with the expansion of the service area of the COVID-19 Surveillance system, all municipalities, hospitals, ambulance systems, quarantine facilities, and emergency rescuing teams will work extensively, which will be the role model to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic initiated by the country which has a poor health facility. In addition to it, it is obvious that this system will be an example of how an IT application should be utilized integrated with the other system, which is lacking in most cases, thereby, duplication of resource as well as implementing non-functioning IT system occurs.
