Italy begins reopening after COVID-19 lockdown

Description:

Italy is tiptoeing back from the COVID-19 lockdown. People are shopping, going to mass and visiting museums. But many cultural centers said they did not yet feel ready to open their doors to the public despite lockdown guidelines easing.


Despite being the epicenter for COVID -19, some Latin America nations are partially reopening.
Open air-markets in Lima reopened Wednesday after 100 days of lockdown in Peru.
In Brazil, Rio de Janeiro opened shops and beauty stores on Monday.
Mexico is reopening in stages. Some hotels and restaurants are welcoming customers.
Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro has tested positive for coronavirus.

He took the test, his fourth, on Monday after developing symptoms, including a high temperature.

Mr Bolsonaro has repeatedly played down risks of what he has called the "little flu", saying he would not be seriously affected. He has opposed lockdowns, which he says hurt the economy.

Brazil has the second-highest number of Covid-19 cases and deaths in the world, after the US.
