By the end of this year, 2021, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has promised that all Nepalis will be vaccinated against COVID-19.
He reiterated, “No Nepalese should be concerned about the availability of COVID-19 vaccination.” PM Oli made the remarks today during the inauguration of the newly constructed surgical building of Bir Hospital, Nepal’s oldest health facility, in the capital.
“Vaccines are brought in, and they arrive on a regular basis. New agreements are being negotiated to ensure that vaccines are available to the majority of the country’s population.
“The Prime Minister went on to say that the government was committed to saving people’s lives by providing vaccines. Although it was first thought that Nepalis would not receive immunizations, he emphasised that this was no longer a concern.
“With vaccines, we can guarantee health safety to people,” he promised, claiming that the government will be effective in providing additional treatment facilities to the people.
The fight against COVID-19 is still ongoing, according to Oli, with the slogan “Life First.”
”The most important thing in life is to live. It is a valuable asset, and protecting it is a major responsibility,” Prime Minister Oli said, adding that despite limited health services and resources, Nepal has been extremely effective in controlling coronavirus.
He emphasized the need of people being attentive of their health, since the third and fourth waves of COVID-19 were supposed to be on the way. The Prime Minister paid attention to Bir Hospital’s poor mobilization and development due to a variety of factors, and instructed the hospital administration to provide effective service guided by human values and service. He advised that medical personnel’s interactions with patients and their companions be improved.
