As of April 15, Nepal has 16 confirmed cases. Following Nepal's second case on March 23 and India's lockdown on March 25, the Nepalese government intensified its response. The government enforced a nationwide lockdown until April 27 which has resulted in suspending of public transportation, banning all domestic and international flights, and imposing mandatory isolation for returning citizens. However, coupled with the government's struggle to control the influx of migrant workers from India after its lockdown, these measures have also left thousands of international travellers stranded in the country where its public health system is also in desperate need of testing kits and PPEs.
