China To Draw "Separation Line" On Mt Everest To Curb COVID Transmission
China has decided to draw a "separation line" on Mount Everest to curb the transmission of coronavirus from Nepali climbers. The decision has been taken after 30 climbers contracted COVID-19 in the base camp of the Nepalese side of the mountain. Meanwhile, all COVID safety norms will be followed on the Chinese side as well. In 2020, China had banned international mountaineers to climb the Everest due to the pandemic.
