Covid 19: World tries to inch toward normalcy but cases on the rise
Indian government decided to extend the lockdown because of Coronavirus infections till June 30, but left the rules of each zone to be decided by the states. Most of the states have decided to reopen the economy.
Maharashtra plans to open the state in phases. From this Monday, it is expected that courts and offices would start functioning but with very few numbers of people.
Individual shops have been allowed to reopen but malls, gyms, cinema halls and other crowded places would still remain closed.
Schools and other educational institutions too would not be allowed to reopen till any decision about the same is taken in July.
Globally, the US continues to be the worst-hit country by the Coronavirus. The infections are almost reaching the 2 million mark while deaths are still being reported due to the virus. Brazil, Russia and the UK too have been battling the virus but all the countries are reopening their economies in a phased manner.
The number of reported infections in India has crossed that of France and Germany now.
