Show Notes

During this episode of "Behind the Mask," Tomas meets with Nirdishtha Sapkota to discuss her native country of Nepal. During the pandemic, Nepal has relied on India heavily as it relates to receiving medical supplies and other essential goods. Nepal has also recently enforced a 15-day lockdown in an effort to stymie the spread of the newer Indian COVID-19 mutations.

Nirdishtha also breaks down the pandemic on a personal level, and how she is coping with things this semester. She also talks about her family and how they are dealing with national lockdowns in Nepal.

All that and more, on episode 10 of "Behind the Mask."
