The number of deaths from Covid-19 in European countries reached 120,140 at the end of last week (CNN data 25/4). The highest case of death occurred in Italy, followed by Spain, France and England. Citing AFP, there are at least 2, 82 million cases of corona virus in the world with 60 percent of the total deaths occurred on the European Continent. But since the beginning of April the case of the spread of the corona virus in Europe began to slow down. It is hoped that the conducive situation will continue into May 2020.

European countries began to prepare for loosening of their area restrictions / lockdowns. Italy, for example, will begin to loosen the restrictions gradually starting on 4 May. The Netherlands plans to open lockdown on May 11, while continuing to take strict steps. Schools in the Netherlands will open on June 1, while cafes and restaurants will open on May 19. Germany, like Italy, will loosen lockdown on May 4. While Spain plans to stop lockdown in the second half of May 2020.

For European countries, it seems that May brought new enthusiasm after the previous months were overwhelmed by this corona virus. However, there are still many other countries in various parts of the world just entering the beginning of the pandemic. It is estimated that this  will still take a few months to control.

It is hoped that the easing of Regional Restrictions in several European countries this May will be successful and does not pose a risk of new transmission. So that it can be a reference for other regions that are currently still struggling to overcome the Corona Covid19 virus attack.
