Kathmandu: Hong Kong will be relaxing measures against Covid-19 lifting the ban on flights from nine countries including Nepal.

Hong Kong will be also reducing quarantine for arrivals from abroad and reopening schools, Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced on Monday.

A ban on flights from Australia, the UK, Canada, France, India, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines and the United States would be lifted from April 1, Reuters reported.

“The flight ban is no longer timely and appropriate…it will bring huge disturbances to Hong Kong people who are stuck in these nine countries if we continue the ban,” Lam told a news briefing.
