The national coronavirus response authority decided to extend the state of emergency for another month until June 30 as the curfew and other travel restrictions have slowed the spread of disease. 

Public venues such as open-air markets and sports grounds reopened on May 3, while shopping malls, restaurants, conference centers and swimming pools reopened on May 17. And movie theaters, sports fields and more commercial activities reopened on June 1 as part of a phased plan of reopening the country.
