Moreover, 5,509 persons have returned home with recovery, the KMC said, adding that 80 persons lost lives to the deadly virus so far.
In the recent days, Kathmandu Valley has been the hotspot of coronavirus as the physical distancing is not maintained and masks not used properly.
Chief Kunwar argued that the infection of coronavirus grew alarmingly lately because of the crowds in public vehicle, government office, hotel, hospital and airports.
The Ministry of Health and Population is appealing daily to the people not to make crowds and maintain adequate safety measures. The total number of infected persons has reached 82,450, thereby claiming the lives of 520 persons in the country. Similarly, 60,696 persons have recovered their health.
