Spike in South Korea virus cases shows perils of reopening
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Mediterranean beaches and Las Vegas casinos have set out plans to reopen to tourists as economies lurch back to life where the tide of coronavirus infections is receding. The European Union is unveiling a massive stimulus package for economies battered by coronavirus-related lockdowns. European countries are trying to emulate South Korea, which has won praise for taming its coronavirus outbreak. But authorities there are watching closely after South Korea reported its highest number of new coronavirus infections in weeks, raising alarm as millions of children return to school. And outbreaks are still expanding across the Americas as the confirmed U.S. death toll approaches 100,000.
