As mercury continues to soar across the country, life in Tarai districts, including Banke Bardiya, Kailali and Kanchanpur, has been hardly hit. 

The temperature in Nepalgunj, the district headquarters of Banke, exceeded 44 degrees Celsius while in Dhangadhi, the district headquarters of Kailali, the temperature reached 42.3 degrees Celsius on Monday. 

Health officials in several Tarai districts have said that the number of patients suffering from fever and diarrhoea has increased in the recent days.
