Of the total 7,259 PCR tests and 3,038 antigen tests, 1,388 have been tested positive for the virus on Sunday. 

According to Dr Krishna Prasad Poudel, Spokesperson at the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP), even though it is the lowest recorded infection rate following the second wave, it cannot be said that the COVID-19 infection in the country has shrunk down. 

Although the government has said that the third wave has not started in Nepal, experts have said that the third wave has already started. Since it is not easy to predict how frightening the third wave could be, Dr Poudel suggested that management must be well prepared.
