    Although India’s COVID-19 crisis continues to deepen, the situation in the neighbouring country of Nepal is also getting worse.

    Daily case counts there have averaged over 8,000 a day in the last week, with the surge believed to be bolstered by migrant workers returning from India. Meanwhile, the country’s vaccination rate also sits at a meager 7 per cent.

    As Redmond Shannon reports, Nepal’s underfunded and ill-prepared hospitals are struggling to cope.
