Coronavirus Reaches Mount Everest
According to the news report by The Hill, the world's tallest mountain, Mount Everest has reported the first-ever case of COVID-19.
A Norwegian climber Erlend Ness tested positive for the virus at the base camp. Later on, he was evacuated to Kathmandu, Nepal.
Earlier, Ness was suspected to have high altitude sickness Pulmonary Edema.
"I really hope that none of the others get infected ... high up in the mountains. It is impossible to evacuate people with a helicopter when they're above 8,000 meters," Ness said.
