Shanghai authorities said on Monday that the city will relax its strict Covid-19 restrictions from June 1, officially ending a lockdown that has kept 25 million residents at home for about two months. As infections in China’s financial hub hover below 40 per day, most residents will be able to get out of their apartment gates without a permit, the authorities have promised. At the same time, buses, subways, and taxis will resume services across the city’s Huangpu River. A day earlier, the local government said it will push for a full resumption of production in the city from June, canceling the limited approval process for local businesses to resume operations.
