Thousands take to streets to demand all restrictions are removed, despite experts warning of an "exponential growth" in new cases.
Those pesky experts and their warnings.
"The loosening measures were far too poorly prepared." Karl Lauterbach, a professor of epidemiology
And this is in a nation that has handled the pandemic far better than the UK has. If Germany are feeling the effects within days of relaxing their lockdown despite having around a quarter of the number of deaths, just imagine how much worse it's going to be here. People have been partying over the bank holiday weekend, parks have been full and even the restrictions are supermarkets are not being enforced as strongly as they were before.

Marie has put together an A2 poster that gives you 100 ideas for things to do once lockdown is over. If you complete a 'date', you scratch it off.
There's unlikely to be a shortage of things we'll all want to do over the weeks immediately after lockdown is lifted but this will be a nice way to commemorate any effort you put into doing a bunch of different things instead of just getting back to the daily grind.

Stunning photos of a state I've visited only to see the Hoover Damn and the Grand Canyon. One of those places I'd love to spend more time exploring. Even the Grand Canyon itself, I've only ever been to the the King of Rome. This time, they have an episode on his teammate, Daniele De Rossi.
At one point they're talking about his goals and I had to look a few of them up to remind myself, but then they mentioned one he scores against Juventus as the Stadio Olimpico, which I was there to watch! While his goal was the equaliser, Roma lost 1-3. Despite the result, it felt like a once in a lifetime experience, especially as it's the only time I got to see Totti play live.
