Impact of Lockdown

Its been more than 70 days since lockdown was announced first in Nepal. With increase in number of infected individuals per day by average of 300 people, livelihood has been threatened.

So far we have recorded 14 deaths due to COVID-19 by today but there’s been more than a thousand deaths unnoticed. Yes, we are talking about the suicides committed during this covid-19 lockdown.

It is no wonder a good reason why government has announced lockdown but what about those people who work on construction sites to get paid on daily basis or those start up companies who has a lot of debt from bank? Well, such issues has created chaos on individuals mind that eventually ended up on suicidal decisions.

Despite of encouraging individuals, our finance minister has announced to pay all taxes by Ashadh 7. When there is no income, how would someone pay tax?
