He added that cultural venues such as museums, art galleries and libraries would open their doors to the public next month, with social distancing measures in place, while physiotherapists will be allowed to restart their businesses to help people with rehabilitation needs.

The country plans to reopen outdoor sports areas on May 4 and allow its top football league to resume behind closed doors at the end of next month.
