Gym owners and trainers in several Indian cities held protests over the weekend against a ban on opening fitness centers over fears of spreading the coronavirus, even as many lockdown restrictions are set to ease.

The nation of 1.3 billion people will allow shopping malls, restaurants, hotels, and places of worship to re-open Monday, more than 10 weeks after a nationwide shutdown was imposed in late March.

But gyms will remain closed, to the frustration of owners and trainers in several cities, including Amritsar in northern Punjab state.



Liberia has made good progress in containing the spread of coronavirus and will open its international airport and hotels on June 21, the government said. A state of emergency that was declared in April and due to expire on June 21 would not be renewed, President George Weah said in a statement. Restrictions such as a night-time curfew would remain in place, though it would start later, according to the statement released.
