Nations and U.S. states have begun gradually easing coronavirus lockdowns, each pursuing its own approach but all with a common goal in mind: restarting their economies without triggering a new wave of infections. The easing of restrictions are being implemented piecemeal, with no clear signs of coordination. Technology is likely to play an important role in helping countries ease their restrictions. Many governments are working on mobile virus-tracking apps and other technology, keen for automated solutions. In Britain, Prime Minister Boris Johnson was back at work Monday, after spending time in intensive care with coronavirus. He urged citizens to be patient and abide by the coronavirus restrictions.
