    Nepal is in lockdown, battling its worst surge in COVID-19. The health care sector is totally overwhelmed. The government’s desperately calling for help from abroad and even the help of international tourists, a record number of whom have registered to climb the world’s most famous mountain this year. The season’s coming to an end, but the climbers could still do the people of Nepal a huge favor.
