Show Notes

Resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, Nepal faced an economic recession, which resulted in many losing their jobs as well as shortages in food and supplies. Nepal's situation led officials to improvise penalties for those who skipped mandatory quarantine as only the border shared with China was closed. That was not the case for the border shared with India. All that and more on this episode of "Behind the Mask."
