The development of the Covid-19 pandemic in various parts of the world became a determinant of government policies in countries affected by the dangerous spread of virus. In Europe, several countries plan to stop the Lockdown policy. From Vienna, it was reported that the Austrian government would immediately loosen the lockdown next week. If it is carried out then in the European continent, Austria is the first country to reopen shopping centers and restaurants, although physical distancing between visitors would still be maintained. Apart from Austria, another country that will soon be easing the lockdown is Denmark. Meanwhile, the Italian government, after two months banning its citizens from leaving the house, is also beginning to relax the lockdown. Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said he would relax restrictions on certain parts of the country this weekend. Italy, which started the lockdown on March 9, is the country most affected by the Covid 19th pandemic. In Eastern Europe, the Government of the Czech Republic will revoke travel restrictions and allow foreigners to enter the country.
The policy to end the lockdown will also be carried out by the Iranian government. Even the lockdown in Tehran reportedly has also been revoked. Several provinces in Iran have begun to relax tight restrictions last week by allowing citizens to travel. Even so, schools and sports activities are still not permitted yet. The World Health Organization, warned the Iranian government that COVID 19 was still raging in the country. Iran is an Asian country after China, which suffered the Corona virus attack with the most death toll. Some members of Parliament and government officials have even been infected by the easily spread virus.
In the United States, the Central Government encouraged easing of rules in several states. Through his twitter President Donald Trump gave signals for loosening lockdowns in Michigan, and Virginia. New York, said to be the heart of the economy and trade of the United States, has been pressed by its citizens to end the lockdown. New Yorkers are urging the government to immediately revoke rules deemed to severely limit social and economic activities.
Loosening of the lock down is of course carried out with consideration of decreasing corona Covid-19 spread and the number of infected in each country. Western Europe seriously felt the economic impact of the Corona attack and the United States too. Though of course, on a different scale. Therefore, policy changes related to the development of the Covid-19 virus, differ from one country to another. Iran and the United States, for example, consider ending the lockdown because they feel the corona's adverse impact on the country's economy.
It is still uncertain when the Covid-19 pandemic will really end. So it cannot be ensured, when the global economy and the economy of each country will gradually recover. It could be that after corona, there will be changes in economic and political order and relations between countries.
