Germany Sees Increase In Cases After Restrictions Are Eased

More than 100 people are currently in quarantine in the Leer region in northwestern Germany after a coronavirus outbreak at a restaurant.

Several people have tested positive for the virus, with others showing symptoms. The latest outbreak has led to questions about whether the lockdown was relaxed too soon - and whether the correct protocols were being followed in the restaurant. 

Cafes and bars are expected to partially re-open in parts of Spain today. People are also going to be able to start sunbathing on beaches again.
Meanwhile, France is relaxing its border restrictions for visitors from most European countries.
However anyone arriving from Spain and the UK will have to go into quarantine.

Almost 5.5 million cases of Covid-19 have been detected across the world.
345,000 people have died of the virus. There are over 1.6 million cases in the US, along with nearly 98,000 deaths.
