As Wales continues into its tenth week of lockdown, the Welsh government is due to make an announcement on Friday detailing how it will start initial relaxing of the pandemic restrictions.
Up until now, the rules imposed in Wales have been stricter than other areas of the UK - like in England, where the restrictions have been eased allowing people to take day-trips anywhere in the country.
While the restrictions have been eased slightly in Wales, such as the reopening of garden and recycling centres, the message is still "stay local" as the Welsh Government insists it will take a "cautious approach" in making any further changes.
People can also meet one other person from another household as long as it is outdoors in England.
The differences have caused some confusion between the two countries, saying he believes Wales does not look at England "with envy" at how the rules have been relaxed there, but is supportive of tackling the coronavirus pandemic with a "four nation approach."
One country that has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic is Italy, which has endured one of the longest lockdowns.
People were told to stay indoors from 9 March as the national quarantine was announced that limited basic freedoms for the Italian population.
To date, almost 33,000 people in the country have died after contracting Covid-19.
More than two months on, the government has started to make calculated decisions to relax measures.
Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced last week that travel to and from Italy would resume from June 3
Gyms, swimming pools and sports centres in some areas reopened on 25 May
It is expected that cinemas and theatres will reopen to the public on 15 June
New Zealand will continue to remove restrictions in the country, with their measures expected to be amongst the most relaxed anywhere in the world by the end of this week.
Gatherings of up 100 people will be permitted starting Friday (May 29), up from the previous limit of ten people.
Beginning Friday, larger Church services would be allowed to resume, while cafes and restaurants would also be able to serve more customers.
Community sports will also begin again.
Any decision on whether to relax restrictions to the lowest level, level-1, is due in around four weeks time.
There has been positive news over the last two days in Ireland with 36 new cases reported yesterday.
It first entered into lockdown on March 27 and almost six weeks later, May 18 marked the first of five phases of lifting the restrictions.
From last week, people were allowed to meet in groups of four but must obey the social distancing guidelines.
Outdoor jobs, like construction workers and gardeners, were also allowed to go back to work.
Some retail outlets have reopened, and outdoor sports like golf and tennis can be played.
Garden centres, motor and bike repair shops and opticians are among the businesses reopening.
Libraries and other non-essential shops will remain closed until phase two starts on 8 June.
Another country with a population similar to Wales is Croatia. They have seen around 2,200 cases with 100 deaths.
As a result of the drop in their R rate, the government has announced they will lift the lockdown in three stages.
The first phase started on April 27, with retail entities apart from those in shopping centres allowed to reopen.
Athletes will be allowed to recommence training in individual sports as will those competing in senior team sports.
The second phase would follow on May 4 and would allow the public health service to fully restore its services, including opticians and other appointments that require close contact with clients.
From May 11, the third phase allowed inter-city bus routes and domestic air traffic to restart.
Selected hospitality premises would be allowed to open.
The country had experienced a total of 561 deaths from the virus, and the government is certain the rate of infection has dropped so dramatically they have declared the spread “under control.”
Political parties in the country voted earlier this month to lift the remaining lockdown measures by June 8
From June 8 it is expected that gatherings of up to 50 people will be allowed, but restrictions on over 500 will be in place until late August.
Last week, secondary school children were allowed to return to normal lessons with the amount of social interaction set to 'gradually increase' over the coming weeks.
