"Nepal's reconstruction process will take some time," said ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon. "And in the meantime there are especially challenging conditions [including] shortages in medicine and medical care, irregular food supply in some of the affected areas and a danger of contamination of drinking water."
According to the spokesman, "we recommend these points be taken into consideration by those planning to travel to Nepal and those already in the country, and recommend they reconsider their decisions."
