President Bidya Devi Bhandari has been infected with SARS–CoV 2 virus.
The Head-of-the-State was hospitalized on September 8 after she complained of fever and flu-like symptoms. She is receiving treatment at the Annex ward bed number 601 of Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital.
Her PCR test came positive to COVID-19, said hospital information officer Ram Bikram Adhikari.
The health condition of the President is improving as per expectation. If the recovery follows the current trend, she will be perhaps discharged by tomorrow.
A medical squad led by Dr. Niraj Bam is involved in her treatment.
