  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Nepal COVID crisis: China plans ‘line of separation’ on Mount Everest” – below is their description.

    China will set up a “line of separation” on one side of Mount Everest’s peak to stop Nepal’s COVID-19 outbreak from crossing the border.

    The plan is part of China’s zero contact strategy to keep climbers from the Chinese and Nepalese sides of Everest from mixing with each other if they reach the summit on the same day.
