RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Airports, bus terminals, restaurants, and gyms reopened in most of Colombia on Tuesday, September 1st, as the nation attempts to reignite its economy following months of restrictions for the coronavirus pandemic. The step expanded previous moves that allowed shops, construction sites, shopping malls, and factories to resume operations in June in most of the country's cities.
Hospital occupancy rates and deaths from the new coronavirus have stabilized across much of Colombia over the past 10 days, prompting the national government to lift more of the emergency measures that had been in place for five months . . .
