Nepal has officially ended its lockdown as of midnight on Wednesday - but schools and cinemas will remain closed, APA reports citing BBC.

The lockdown was imposed in March after the country recorded two cases.

More than 17,994 cases have been recorded and 40 people have died in the country since the pandemic began.

While most of the lockdown restrictions have been removed, schools and cinemas will remain closed and large gatherings remain banned.

International and domestic flights will resume from 17 August.

All international passengers, both arriving and departing, will need to have a certificate saying they are not infected.
