The SARS-CoV-2 has taken over the globe and it’s been a few weeks since the World Health Organization declared the disease caused by it, i.e. the Coronavirus Disease aka COVID-19, a pandemic. Similarly, cities across the world are being locked down — China was the first one to do in Wuhan and it turned out to be effective. Actually, it disallows the virus to spread.
Moving on to our own country Nepal, there is one known case of the COVID-19, however, it has been said to be cured. But with only less than 1,000 people got tested up till now, we can’t really come up with any data.
The news will keep coming but the big question is, are they all legit? Of course not. Every incident brings both the correct news and the fake ones. But not every person is able to judge. Also, be it correct or fake, every piece of news will get you thinking. That’s what exactly what it is intended for and it does serve its purpose. People start panicking!
Fusemachines Nepal Private Limited, with a vision to promulgate legitimate data on COVID-19 in Nepal, has developed an open-source platform to all.
The company affirms it to be working hard on the project thereby providing the correct information to all Nepalese regarding the ongoing pandemic; Nepal, being one of all the other nations not to get exposed to SARS-CoV-2 — well hope it’s really true. All it does is collect data regarding the COVID-19 from sources that are trusted such as the WHO and shows in its own platform collectively. Alongside this, you can know the hospitals in Nepal that are allocated for the disease as well as the capacity data for each. You can visit the website here.
Finally, we urge you to take care of your health and immunity and also be responsible for you and your surrounding people. It’s a national emergency and when there’s no treatment to depend upon, social distancing until it’s urgent is what you must do. Furthermore, get yourself updated and checked if you feel any symptoms or even uneasy.

Stay safe everyone! Be responsible, call 1115 in case of emergency.
