Austria is to reopen thousands of shops on Tuesday as it seeks to ease restrictions brought in to stem the spread of the coronavirus.
Garden centres, DIY stores and small shops will open as part of a step-by-step plan to restart the economy.
However strict social distancing rules remain in place, with people urged to stay at home as much as possible.
It comes as some other European countries ease restrictions imposed over the pandemic.
Spain has allowed some citizens to return to work and Denmark is reopening schools for younger children. (Text and photo courtesy BBC)
