Medical care has been diverted from the mission in Nepal after the Everest mission was grounded due to weather conditions, according to officials.CNN affiliate Khaama Press reported that the Nepal Medical Corps said Everest Medical Services had sent a plane to the city of Manali to take care of medical needs of its employees.
The Nepalese government ordered the medical services on the mission to leave the area, according the report.
Officials at Everest Medical Center in Kathmandu confirmed the flight had been diverted to Manali, and said medical supplies were being moved to nearby medical centers.
The Nepal Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said the medical mission was temporarily grounded due the poor weather conditions.
The mission was supposed to deliver medical supplies to the capital of Kathmandua on April 18.
However, Everest Medical Service said it had received no notification of a rescheduling.
Officials from Everest Medical Care Mission, which was founded by a Chinese medical company in 2010, said in a statement that the flight diverted to the border of Nepal and then to the neighboring country of Bhutan, where medical supplies are transported.
Khaama said the mission was able to get medical supplies in time, but the medical supply truck was stopped by Nepaleses.
The medical services are on the ground, but they’re unable to move medical supplies because of the weather conditions,” KhaAMA reported.
