Mount Everest has seen its first Covid-19 infection after a member of an expedition tested positive for the virus.

The infected person was evacuated by helicopter to a hospital in Kathmandu. Last week the rest of the group were forced to quarantine at Base Camp by Nepal.

It comes as climbers have been allowed to return to the mountain this month for the first time since the pandemic hit.

Mount Everest has seen its first Covid-19 infection after a member of an expedition tested positive for the virus.

Mountaineers and government officials stated climbers will be scaling the peak under Covid-19 restrictions.

A source told the publication ‘Outside’ that the one person on the mountain had tested positive for Covid-19. It was initially thought they were suffering from high-altitude pulmonary edema.

Upon arrival at the Kathmandu hospital,l they tested positive for the virus.
No other cases have been detected and teams on the mountain are proceeding with the climbing season.

Nepal requires foreign travellers to take a Covid-19 test upon arrival in the country, as well as undergo a quarantine period.
The climbing season restarted on the world’s greatest mountain this month. It was forced to close for climbers for a year due to the pandemic.

Over 300 climbers are predicted to attempt to scale the mountain, which stands at 29,032 feet (8,848.86 meters), this season, compared to 381 climbers, who attempted to climb it in the same period in 2019.
