KATHMANDU, Jan 24 — A Nepali student home from China tested positive for the new coronavirus, an official in Kathmandu said today, making it the first confirmed case in the Himalayan nation.

“One patient tested positive for coronavirus. He is a Nepali student studying in China,” Mahendra Shrestha, a Health Ministry spokesperson, told Reuters.

The student had come home on holiday from Wuhan in China, a ministry of health statement said. He is being kept under surveillance and those in close contact with him were being investigated.

The airport in Wuhan, the epicentre of the virus, was closed on Jan. 23.

The ministry said it was seeking health information from all passengers travelling from China into Nepal.
