Among those in “modified quarantine” is Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, who has emerged as a vital voice of reason in the midst of the crisis. But Pence does not self-quarantine
, according to his office, according to which he plans to return to the White House today.
Particularly alarming is a spike in infections in Wuhan, the central Chinese city where coronavirus was first detected late last year. The reappearance of the virus and the silent spread in the city – which has only recently returned to normal after nearly three months of blockade – will raise concerns too soon about the risks of easing the restrictions.

Q: What will the future of travel be like?
New Zealand and Australia have pledged to create a “travel bubble” that will allow visits between the two countries, once it is safe to do so. It seems that the United Kingdom and France will have a similar agreement
. China has begun to allow domestic travel, although its borders are still closed to most foreigners. Thailand is considering special tourist locations that double in quarantine areas. But experts warn that even with new initiatives, it may take years before the trip rises to pre-Covid-19 levels. And even when it happens, we may never travel the same way again

WHAT IS IMPORTANT TODAY
UK PM Shifts Advice From “Stay Home” To “Be Alert”
In a highly anticipated national address, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson
he invited people to return to the workplace if they could not work from home and suggested that foreign travelers would be “quarantined” after arrival, exposing his vision to gradually restart the economy. But the plan, as well as the messages that surround it, has left many confused.
As Johnson’s advice changes from “staying home” to “staying alert” – raising concerns about the possibility of a second wave of infections – Germany could offer a signal of what lies ahead
. It is seeing an increase in new coronavirus cases a few days after the blocking measures have eased. Chancellor Angela Merkel announced a gradual reopening of all stores and schools last week, as well as the resumption of the Bundesliga football championship, although there will be no spectators.
Our cities may never seem the same
From Auckland to Bogota, planners are already adapting our cities to the blockade. For supporters of pedestrianized, unpolluted and vehicle-free cities, the past few weeks have offered an unprecedented opportunity to test the ideas for which they have long put pressure: from closing roads to cars, from opening others to bicycles and widening of sidewalks. But the changes will last and what will be the most radical design proposals – be it monitors for sewers or “epidemic skyscrapers” – the post-pandemic city
But, for many countries, there may be no choice but to return to existing infrastructure. In India’s national rail service has announced that passenger trains will partially resume
in the country starting Tuesday, another important step in easing blockade measures there, although infections continue to rise.
Professional sports are returning
It was the bottom of the ninth inning. Kim Sang-su entered the battering box for the NC Dinos, who had gone 4-0 at the Samsung Lions on the opening day of the 2020 season of the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO). This was Dinos’ last chance for a return. But play-by-play announcer Karl Ravech has disappeared, a problem with his Internet service.
It was the first baseball game in Korea broadcast by ESPN
, under an agreement that will see the American sports network show six KBO games per week. For sports fans in the U.S. and other countries struggling to contain the pandemic, the return of sports like KBO offers something to satisfy their live sports cravings and a picture of what other sports might look like when they eventually resume. .
