I am Nabin Joshi, aData fellow at Code for Nepal . I am a mechanical engineering student. I received my bachelor’s degree in 2019 from Kathmandu University. Many technological advancements radically modified machines over time, due to researchers and scientists that worked tirelessly to make things happen the way they are now. Machines, which were completely mechanically driven only a few years ago, have now begun to work automatically, thanks to programming, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other technologies. This progress piqued my curiosity, which evolved into a desire to pursue Mechanical Engineering as a bachelor’s degree.
Let us all help the volunteers and organizations who are helping Nepal by building a database of all the fundraisers and their expected goals. A database will help Nepalis identify funding gaps and take appropriate actions.
Just 6 months ago, Nepal had just 1,500 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Nepal. Since then the number of confirmed cases has increased dramatically in the country. Globally, experts are warning that during winter COVID-19 cases will likely rise as gatherings move indoors.
The Government of Nepal has reported over 350 COVID-19 positive cases and two deaths due to this novel coronavirus as of this writing. To prevent the mass spread, Nepal has been under a national lockdown since March 24.
