Kathmandu: At a time when the Nepalese living in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the lethal Coronavirus, are panic-stricken and demanding that they be airlifted for their safety, Nepal government on Friday officially announced that it has no such immediate plans to evacuate those Nepalese due to lack of quarantine facilities in Nepal.
