Normal life back in South Korea as social distancing rules eased | AFP

Daily lives return as culture facilities such as museums and galleries are reopened, and schools are planned to re-start steadily within the month of May. The government, however, still encourages distancing in daily life. Hence, whilst still taking precautions, people are now less reluctant to gather around outdoors and enjoy each other’s company.
