The earthquake and the Indian blockade are partly to blame for the prevalence of a sleep disorder in Nepal, reports My Republica.
“This problem has increased significantly in the recent years,” said Professor Saroj Ojha, chief of the Psychiatric Department at the TUTH, adding that the stress caused by various reasons has fuelled the problems. He said that the devastating earthquake has increased the problem significantly as a lot of people lost their family members and property. He said that the subsequent Indian blockade also robbed sleep of many people. “A lot of people lost their job and incurred huge financial losses because of the blockade,” added Dr Ojha.
