The coronavirus also reached Mount Everest
The global epidemic of coronavirus has reached Mount Everest, the world’s safest and highest point.
Nepalese officials say several of the world’s top climbers have tested positive for the corona virus and have been diagnosed with the corona virus. However, only one affected climber from Norway has been identified.
This is the first incident since the global epidemic broke out on Mount Everest. Authorities say a climber fell ill last week, giving the impression that he may have contracted the disease as a result of the altitude. Was diagnosed.
Other cohorts also tested positive for coronavirus when they were transferred from base camp to hospital. No official announcement has been made yet, but after the assessment of the code case at base camp, it is likely that the mountaineering season on Mount Everest will not continue.
Prativya Pandey, medical director of Nepal’s CIWEC Hospital, told media that the base camp authorities had tried to keep the climbers away from each other. We also worked with the Ministry of Health to take all possible measures to protect climbers and crew.
According to Rudra Singh, head of Nepal’s tourism department, we have no option but to save the mountaineering economy. Initially, only 371 climbers were allowed by Nepal to reach Mount Everest, after which it was expected to be extended if conditions were favorable, but this is no longer possible.
It is also worth noting that Mount Everest, the highest point in the world, was recently opened to climbers with strict restrictions.
