World's Worst Day in Time Again


Austria plans to reopen smaller shops from next week in its first step to loosen a lockdown that has slowed the spread of the coronavirus, as long as the public continues to observe the lockdown broadly, Chancellor Sebastian Kurt has said.


Kurz told a news conference that since Austria had acted earlier than most countries, that gave it the ability to reopen shops sooner as well.


If all goes well, it will reopen non-essential shops of less than 400 square meters and DIY shops on April 14, followed by all shops and malls on May 1, he said.
