Services at Bhaktapur DAO, municipalities halted


BHAKTPUR : Essential services except emergency ones at the district administration office (DAO) have been indefinitely closed citing the increasing risk of COVID-19. Likewise, all municipalities in the district have followed the suit.

There is an increasing risk due to the huge number of service seekers flooding at the office, said Chief District Officer Hum Kala Pandey, adding that as a result, services have been halted. A cabinet meeting on October 12 had decided that any services at any part of the district having more than 500 active cases of the coronavirus could be postponed. The district has over 1,900 active infection cases so far.

The decision was taken after holding a consultation among the COVID-19 Crisis Management Centre, all side stakeholders, health experts and security agencies, according to a statement issued by the administration office.

Similarly, services except emergency ones at Changunarayan Municipality and Suryabinayak Municipality have come to a close until October 31 following detection of infection cases in its employees and some people’s representatives Likewise, the Madyapurthimi Municipality has closed its services for the past one month after its staffs and people’s representatives tested positive, said the municipality.
