NRB stops banks from creating crowds in Kathmandu !!

As WHO has issued information about being safe from the virus, different countries and the people in those countries have been involved in implementing those instructions. WHO has said that the virus can transmit through droplets released when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It spreads when you get in close contact with an infected person. 

Certain safety precautions can be followed in order to be safe from getting in contact with the virus. Cleaning hands often with soap or sanitizer, covering the mouth when coughing or sneezing, avoiding touch with eyes, nose and mouth, avoiding close contact with people having symptoms, and cleaning the frequently touched surface are some of the safety precautions to be properly followed.

Avoiding crowded areas is also one of the major thing you can do to be safe from the virus.

Following the safety protocols the Central Bank has decided to stop the banks from creating crowd. Recently, The central bank of Nepal has directed all the banks in Kathmandu valley to stop attracting crowds as a small step for the effort of containing of the virus.

A prohibitory order has also been imposed by the District administration offices in the three districts of the valley. Before the prohibitory order was issued on the 20th of August which had been said to last till the 26th of August. However, the order has now been extended till the 31st of August as the virus is spreading rapidly. The banks have now opened few branches only and the opened branches have attracted big crowds.

The executive director of the Bank's and Financial institution Regulation Department of Nepal Rastra Bank, Dev Kumar Dhakal has said that the banks have been instructed to open only a few more branches and will not be allowed to open all the branches for avoiding the crowds in the bank for the containment of the virus.

As most of the Nepalese people are not used to the online banking technologies, that they can use from home, the bank customers are visiting the banks which is creating crowds in the bank which can spread the virus.
