Global governments are still walking a tightrope between easing coronavirus lockdowns to revive economic growth, and controlling any resurgence of Covid-19. Some countries are reporting a surge in new cases, even after halting the virus last spring.

New York will reopen gyms and NYC museums, with capacity limits; the U.K. will begin sending Covid-19 contract tracers door to door. Germany has ruled out any further easing of coronavirus restrictions after a recent surge in new cases, while Greece and Ireland have moved to tighten lockdown rules. South Korea banned large gatherings in Seoul to halt an infection flareup there.
