Russia opens up from Covid-19 lockdown Listen
Russia is slowly beginning to open up again, even though the country’s number of Covid-19 cases is still rising. The country has more than 485,000 cases, with 8,595 infections confirmed on Tuesday.

The city also released a schedule of which restrictions will be lifted over the next few weeks. Annemarie Evans asked RTHK’s Moscow correspondent Fred Weir whether people thought the easing of restrictions had come too soon.
