Many people died in the street, yard of hospitals, inside ambulance and on the way to hospital. There is no chances to cremation of the dead bodies in an electric crematorium because of the limitation of burnt. People start burring dead bodies on the bank of Bagmati River in Kathmandu and in other part of Nepal, there are obligation to bury up to 6 dead bodies in a pit.

So life is becoming harder that worse to save life from both coronavirus and hunger. In villages there are no vehicles to reach the hospital. The local government is trying to set up isolation center without oxygen cylinder. The record shows that the most of the people were died caused low oxygen level. So that, in this time the most needful thing is oxygen cylinders for local isolation centers is much appreciated. The local government and all the local social activists are worried about to save the life of people because there are no hospital nearby and no vehicle services.
