Nepal on Sunday extended the nationwide lockdown imposed to contain the spread of the coronavirus until June 2, a day after the country reported its first COVID-19 death.

A decision on the matter was taken during a Cabinet meeting held at the prime minister’s official residence in Kathmandu, sources in the Cabinet said.

A high-level committee for the prevention and control of COVID-19 had recommended to the government to extend the lockdown for another 15 days in view of the rising number of coronavirus cases. The lockdown, which was first enforced in the country on March 24, was to end on Monday midnight.
