Coronavirus at the highest peak

Coronavirus at the highest peak

Mount Everest, the world's most elevated pinnacle, doesn't appear to be protected from Covid-19, with reports arising of different climbers testing positive at the headquarters in Nepal. The main Covid-19 case at the headquarters this year was identified in late April. The Nepali government has kept up that there are no diseases in the Everest headquarters.

As per The Washington Post, the Nepal Mountaineering Association has affirmed just four Covid-19 cases at the headquarters — three climbers and one nearby guide.

However, Polish climber Pawel Michalski wrote last week that "more than 30 people have already been evacuated to Kathmandu in helicopters with suspected pulmonary edema — later found to be positive for coronavirus".

Rojita Adhikari, a climber who tested positive a few days after she left the base camp on April 19, said there were several unreported cases. "The Nepal Government is still denying there is a Covid-19 outbreak at Everest base camp, despite emerging evidence. Why is the government hiding the truth?" she tweeted.

"At camp, I saw many sick people. At a Gorakshep (a small village that is the last stop on most treks to base camp) hotel, a few sick climbers were isolating as well. I found Covid-19 is so common around the camp. They took it so easily," Adhikari told The Washington Post.
