Austrians stormed shopping malls, Spaniards filled the streets after 49 days of isolation
The countdown has begun until the great release, announced by the authorities on May 15. Plans are being made about the operation of restaurants, hotels, rules have been imposed for the reopening of hair salons. The somewhat normal life is enjoyed by the citizens of other European states. The images of Austrians rushing into shops, or those of Spaniards enjoying sports and walks are as optimistic as they are disturbing. Authorities warn that the danger has not passed.
Since 1 May, Austria has further relaxed measures imposed in the context of the coronavirus pandemic and allowed the reopening of hairdressing salons, larger shops and shopping malls. And the images speak for themselves about the impatience with which people have been waiting for this relaxation. Queues formed in front of clothing stores, sidewalks were crowded, and parks and markets became promenades again.
Austria will further relax its containment measures from May 15, when restaurants and cafes will be reopened and religious services will be able to resume, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz was quoted as saying by Reuters on Tuesday.
Relaxation also is in Spain, one of the hardest-hit countries in terms of deaths due to the new coronavirus. Over the weekend, in Barcelona, runners and cyclists littered the streets near the beach, where surfers enjoyed the waves.
In Madrid, cyclists and young people on skateboards walked the boulevards, crossing police lanes trying to prevent congestion. Spain was one of the countries hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic and imposed strict containment measures in March. Sports and recreational activities have been banned in an attempt to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Home isolation was imposed on March 14 and the state of emergency was due to end on Saturday, May 9, but will be extended until May 24. Although the opposition claimed that 60 days of state of emergency were illegal, it had to vote on the law for national security.

There's a test that tells you if you're immune to Covid-19
Researchers at Oxford have made an important discovery: they have launched a test that can identify, in just 20 minutes, whether or not a person has antibodies to Covid-19. Those who find out they are immune to coronavirus can return to work and resume their lives. The British government has already ordered 50 million tests that will be ready by June and says it is vital to saving the economy.
A test costs 10 pounds and is done through a small sting that takes a drop of blood. It works on the principle of pregnancy test: if after 20 minutes two lines appear, it means that there are antibodies to Covid-19. One line shows that the person is either vulnerable or the test has failed.
The test was developed by researchers at Oxford in collaboration with a firm backed by the British government. It wants to produce 1 million tests per week, by summer, and from next year to reach a production capacity of 50 million tests. The plan is for people to take pictures of the test result and send them to a central unit, where they will be entered into a database. Those who are immune to the virus will be able to return to work and thus the country's economy would have a chance.
