Panama has lifted a five-month-old coronavirus measure that restricted women from going out one day and men the next, the Associated Press reports.

French health authorities on Monday reported 6,158 new Covid-19 infections over the past 24 hours, sharply down from Saturday’s record high since large-scale testing began of 10,561 and Sunday’s tally of 7,183.
The Monday figure always tends to dip as there are fewer tests conducted on Sundays.
