However, the body of the deceased was managed by the health workers, said Shivaraj Health Branch Chief Chudamani Bhattarai. Bhattarai said that the health workers had to manage the bodies themselves as the deceased could not be kept in isolation for a long time and it would be too late to inform the Nepal Army.
