China has taken an important decision not to let the threat of pandemics come after more than 30 covid infected climbers on the world’s highest peak. Actually, on Everest, Beijing has planned to make a ‘border line’ on its side because China wants that its territory cannot be transitioned. At the end of 2019, the deadly corona virus started from Wuhan, China and within three months it took the form of an epidemic. Mount Everest encircles the Sino-Nepal border, with the northern slope facing China.
Infected climbers evacuated from Nepali base camp
It is noteworthy that in the last week of April, the first case of Covid infection occurred on the peak of Everest. Subsequently, several infectives were reported. More than 30 infected climbers have been evacuated from Nepal’s base camp on the world’s highest peak in recent weeks. Nepal is facing the second wave of Corona. China will also increase its prevention and control measures against Coronavirus infection at its base camp on the northern side of the mountain. Under this, non-climber tourists will be prohibited from entering the natural area of Everest.
According to Tibetan authorities will take ‘preventive measures’ to avoid contact between climbers on the north and south slopes or at the top.
Quoting the head of the Tibet Mountaineering Association, Xinhua News reported that the mountain guides would erect the boundary line at the summit of the mountain before allowing the climbers to begin the climb. The official did not provide more information about this. China had banned the mountaineering of foreign nationals since last year due to Corona infection.
