Governments are gradually easing Covid-19 lockdowns and travel restrictions to revive economic growth, while attempting to control any resurgence. It’s been six months since the World Health Organization became aware of the novel coronavirus, and the “worst is yet to come,” World Trade Organization head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a briefing in Geneva last week. In Texas, where cases are rising at a rapid rate, Republican Governor Greg Abbott has called a halt to business reopenings and ordered bars and taverns closed.

All times are Eastern and subject to change.
