Italy reports 99 new deaths as stores, bars reopen”

While Italy has been gradually easing the terms of the national coronavirus lockdown that first went into effect on March 10, the June 3 change will be the first change that allows travel to and from Italy from other countries. It said 127,326 people have recovered from the coronavirus in Italy, 2,150 more than Sunday.

Italy also recorded highest daily number of cases and daily casualty toll, earning it "the epicenter" of coronavirus.

It was around then that the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.

Restrictions had been enforced in March but, as the spread of the virus continued to slow down, Giuseppe Conte, Italy's prime minister, recently announced that the country would take a "calculated risk" to resume activities.

The decree which foresees the Italian borders to reopen on June 3, notes that the decision could be annulled if the situation in Italy regarding the rate of Coronavirus infections worsens again.

After two months of strict lockdown, citizens and businesses restarted a more regular life, as restaurants, bars and shops reopened their doors.

Italy plans to allow entry to European Union citizens without a mandatory 14-day quarantine starting 3 June, while Spain hopes to welcome tourists sometime in early July.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said this week that her country wanted all border controls within the EU's visa-free area to be lifted from 15 June. "We have to accept that, because otherwise we will never get going again".

Italy is hoping also to encourage domestic tourism, offering vouchers to lower income families to spend at hotels, campgrounds and other establishments before the end of the year.

Meanwhile, gyms, sports venues, and pools can reopen on May 25, he said, according to the BBC.

It was gathered that pews were disinfected before the service, the priest wore gloves to place the communion wafer in people's hands instead of their mouths, and worshippers were made to sit apart in observance of physical distancing.
