    Nepal is experiencing a devastating wave of Covid-19, with more than 4,000 people dying with the virus in the last month alone.

    Families are grieving for lost relatives, unable to say goodbye in their traditional way, with only minutes to perform last rites from the other side of the crematorium gates.

    Cases are now falling in the capital Kathmandu, but Nepal still has one of the highest test-positivity rates in the world.
