According to WHO, Latest figures on coronavirus outbreak shows that the worldwide number of infections reaches 87,614 as of March 3 and death toll climbed to 2,994.

Following is the latest map covering all the affected countries, deaths and successful recovery worldwide. All data are from WHO.

Following the risk assessment by WHO, which indicated Nepal among the top nations with a high chance of virus spreads, Nepal Government has given a sign that a promotional campaign for Nepal Tourism Year 2020 will be focused more on domestic tourism more than foreign tourists as a strategic move to fight against the Novel Corona Virus outbreak that is spreading throughout the world. Talking about Nepal, the confirmed case is only one though being a neighbor nation of China. The majority of tourists planning to visit Nepal started to raise questions on the current status of this novel disaster and Is Nepal safe to travel during the Novel Corona Virus outbreak? and so on.

Data Shows that Nepal is quite lucky in case of #CoronaDisaster though being nearer than the Countries like Japan, United States of America, Israel and France etc. from China.

Real time data of Japan seems like it’s indicating Nepal should get prepared for such unpredictable and unavoidable situation. IT’s high chance of virus spread as Nepal and India are Celebrating mass people gathering Festival of Colors – Holi in the next week. Image by illionSo may help you to understand this well.

So, my conclusion is, Better go for Precaution than painful Cure. Small and growing economies like Nepal mayn’t be able to handle epidemics like this disastrous flu. Answer in my conclusion should be a big NO unless it’s of optimal importance than your own precious life.

Regarding the Traveler’s safety, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends following some safety tips for everyone to follow.

Dhanyawad and Stay safe everyone! I’ll be expecting some feedback and share from your end as I’m planning to post something new every week in this blog where I was inactive since long. @DataSagar
