6:35 am on 11 May 2020

Guam has further eased its Covid-19 restrictions, now allowing gatherings of more than 10 people.

The territory was the part of the Pacific worst-hit by the coronavirus, with 151 cases and five deaths.

But for several weeks there have been no more than a few cases, with growing confidence the outbreak has been brought under control.

From yesterday morning, retail outlets, shopping malls, salons, and government services have been allowed to operate.

However, they must have several safety measures in place, such as social distancing.
