KATHMANDU : Prohibitory orders have been enforced in all three districts of the Kathmandu Valley from today in order to contain the spread of coronavirus.

According to the decision of the meeting of Chief District Officers and district-based security chiefs of three districts on Tuesday, the orders have come into enforcement from 12.00 last night to impose a ban on the activities excluding those related to the most essentials.
