153 (Male: 70, Female: 83) people died and more than 338 (Male: 138, Female: 200) were injured as a result of the earthquake. As per the secondary data sources, 92% of the buildings in the highly impacted municipalities are constructed from stone masonry which has high fragility of damage.

UNOCHA 2023/11/04
Initial information indicates that some 133 people were killed across Karnali Province, including reportedly 95 people in Jajarkot and 38 people in Western Rukum. Several hundred more people have reportedly been injured. These figures are preliminary, and concerns remain that actual figures may be higher, especially as the earthquake struck at a time when most people were likely to have been at home or otherwise indoors.
