When the restraining order relaxed, Italy will reopen the entire airport, border with neighboring countries and remove mandatory isolation requirements for people on entry.
France reported 182,219 infections and 28,289 deaths, up 393 and 74 respectively, lower than yesterday.

16 German states gradually removed restrictions on the levels varying from April 20. Germany eased border controls with some of its neighbors on May 16 and aims to restore freedom of movement in Europe from mid-June.
The rate of increase in infections and deaths in Europe has decreased significantly compared to the peak in March, allowing countries to relax their social blockade. However, many European leaders still warn of the risk of Covid-19 recurrence if they completely remove measures of community isolation quickly.

However, President Hassan Rouhani on May 20 said Iran was “almost able to contain the epidemic” and that most of the deaths were between the ages of 70 and older.
Health officials say the increase in new infections from May 2 was due to increased testing by Iran. Experts are skeptical of Iran’s official figures, arguing that the real number could be much higher.
