Shanghai announced Monday that it has a plan that could allow businesses to fully reopen and life to return to “normal” by the end of June, in a sign that the city’s worst ever Covid-19 outbreak might be coming to an end.

Vice Mayor Zong Ming said the city is embarking on a three-phase plan this week that will gradually lift restrictions, including a weeks-long lockdown, now that 15 of the city’s 16 districts have achieved the goal of no community spread — meaning no new cases were found among residents who weren’t already in quarantine — for the past three days.
