Covid reaches Mt Everest base camp, climber tests positive

Apr 23, 2021 07:06 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Coronavirus, that has devastated the entire world, has now reached Everest base camp. Reports said that a climber, who was evacuated from the base camp on Wednesday, has tested positive for Covid-19. The New York Times has reported that in fact there had been multiple climbers who tested positive after being flown out of base camp. This is just weeks into the climbing season that symptoms of the virus have been found at Everest's base camp. Making matters even worse, many common coronavirus symptoms bear a close resemblance to the symptoms of altitude sickness and the "Khumbu cough" that often plagues climbers at high altitudes.
