[Correspondence] Immediate lessons from the Nepal earthquake

A 7·8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal at 1156 h local time on Saturday, April 25. The epicentre was 77 km northwest of Kathmandu. Besides the hardest hit central Nepal, the adjoining areas of India, Tibet, and Bangladesh were affected and avalanches triggered on Mount Everest.1 Kathmandu’s centuries old temples suffered extensive damage. Poorly constructed buildings collapsed and many villages in remote mountains were destroyed causing casualties and leaving a large population homeless. A week later, more than 7400 people had died and more than 14 000 were injured.
