Nepal death toll may reach 10,000: Koirala

Tagging Saturday’s massive earthquake as Nepal’s worst ever quake, country’s Prime Minister, Sushil Koirala, said on Tuesday that the death toll has touched 4,347 and could go up to 10,000.

Despite the international help reaching out to the remotest parts of the country, a fear of mounting death toll is grasping the nation. It is expected that the tragedy may even rise bigger than the 1934 earthquake, which claimed over 8,000 lives.

Koirala’s media advisor, Prakash Adhikari, told a news agency that the PM met the envoys of India, China and USA and shared the toll figures with them.

The home ministry informed that Kathmandu and Sindhupalchowk districts were the two most affected areas, where 1,039 and 1,176 people have died respectively.

The already awful condition of Nepal is marred by water shortage, poor waste management and delay in debris removal.

The government has appealed the international community to send out more aid.
