Outdoor eating open in NY

Once the epicenter of the global outbreak, the city was the last region in New York state to move into Phase 2 of reopening with restaurants and bars offering outdoor service and many shops reopening. Barber shops and hair salons welcomed customers for the first time since mid-March, with some fully booked for the next two weeks.

Playgrounds were also due to reopen on Monday in the most populous U.S. city. The pandemic has killed nearly 120,000 Americans and is flaring up in a dozen states that reported record increases in cases last week.

At the height of the outbreak, New York City’s usually bustling streets were deserted and nights were filled with the wailing of ambulance sirens. On its worst days, New York state was losing 1,000 lives a day, hospitals were overwhelmed and bodies filled makeshift morgues. On Monday it reported 10 deaths from the coronavirus. The usual traffic jams clogged streets and the sound of honking cars brought a welcome normalcy.
