KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Three advisers to Nepal’s Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli said on Saturday they had tested positive for COVID-19, which has claimed the lives of 528 people in the country.
Oli’s press, political and foreign affairs advisers told Reuters they had been infected and were isolating themselves.
An assistant working for Oli also tested positive, they added.
Oli has previously tested negative, but had yet to take a test after his associates tested positive, press adviser Surya Thapa said.
