AFTER almost two months of movement restriction to varying degrees around the world to curb the outbreak of Covid-19, some governments have started the process of re-opening their countries and easing the “lockdown” restrictions.

They are doing this to restore some semblance of normality to livelihoods that have been upended by these restrictions.

Malaysia has managed to ‘flatten the curve’ of the infections, and credit must go to our robust and supremely effective healthcare workers and for the decisive actions taken by the government.

Governments are struggling with the decision to ease or end the lockdowns because it is not an easy one to make.
