    Colombia’s capital city is lifting tough COVID-19 restrictions including a night curfew, and is reopening bars.

    But the move comes as the numbers of COVID infections and deaths remain high.

    A nighttime curfew will be removed, schools will reopen and bars will be allowed to stay open until 1am.

    This follows more than a month of anti-government protests.
