Multiple signs have posted warning against the spread of diseases.

This sign says: “Let’s not allow diseases to spread, let’s keep the area clean. We can at least do this much. If you keep your surroundings clean, we will avoid the spread of cholera, jaundice, typhoid and diarrhoea.”

Between late yesterday afternoon and the early hours of today, they were recorded other three aftershocks from medium to high intensity, one of which lasted two minutes, but from yesterday morning the ground is back to shake at least a dozen time.

The number of the death  rose from 900 of yesterday to nearly 2,000 of today, 700  in Kathmandu, at which are added at least 5,000 wounded, and heavy structural damages.

The earthquake measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale had its epicenter in the Gorkha district, halfway between the capital and the city of Pokhara, it was clearly felt also in Delhi in India, Western China, Bangladesh, Bhutan and up in Lahore in Pakistan.
