  • Welcome to this outdoors edition of CNN 10.

  • I'm Carla Zeus.

  • All 50 U.

  • S states have relaxed at least some of their restrictions concerning Corona virus, but is the 2019 2020 school year winds down?

  • A lot of questions are being raised not only about summer learning loss, but about what happens in the fall.

  • The guidance from the White House says that American schools can reopen in states that have seen a lasting decrease in New Cove in 19 cases and who's hospitals are overloaded with patients.

  • It also says there should be no sign of a rebound of cove in 19 in these states.

  • The guidance from the Centers for Disease Control says that schools should be ready to screen everyone for Cove in 19 symptoms, carry out extensive disinfecting help people keep their distance from each other and have a response plan with health officials in place if someone on campus catches Corona virus.

  • But in many cases, the final decision on this will be up to the school district's themselves.

  • Certain schools in Montana and Idaho have re opened, while other states have said distance learning could continue in the fall, critics of schools that reopen at this point say they're putting students and their families at risk for Corona virus supporters say teachers and students want to get back in the building and that the schools prepared to reduce the risk.

  • The number of Corona virus cases differs from state to state.

  • The rules that air still in place differ from state to state.

  • So it's just too early to know what the country's education landscape will look like in the fall.

  • And it's possible that any plans that are in place could change.

  • That happened at 66 schools in South Korea.

  • Within two hours of the time they reopened their doors.

  • They closed them once again.

  • But in other parts of the country, learning is back in session.

  • Here in South Korea, high school seniors are heading back to schools this Wednesday, and it really feels like a milestone in the country's fight against Corona.

  • Virus temperature checks, hand sanitizers, social distancing both in the classroom, Onda lunchtime are really becoming the new norm in the cafeterias.

  • For example, here in this school in central Seoul, they have plastic partitions between people eating every other seat is kept vacant because that is the one place that they will be allowed to take off their masks.

  • Apart from that, they have to wear masks on campus for the rest off the day.

  • Never have Bean a couple of first day hurdles.

  • We know that dozens of schools in a city just west of Seoul have had to close again after two confirmed cases within the student body.

  • Now they officials say that they're doing this out of precaution to make sure they can contact trace on pinpoint exactly where those students caught that virus.

  • Paula Hancocks, CNN.

  • Seoul So we've been taking a series of virtual vacations these past few months, thanks to our new partnership with CNN Travel.

  • It characterizes Europe as the world's biggest tourist playground.

  • Of all the international tourism that takes place, 50% of it arrives in Europe.

  • But the continent's economy has been crushed by the threat of and responses to Corona virus.

  • With the summer travel season approaching European countries, they're trying to figure out how they can reopen borders and transportation networks to encourage people to visit and spend money once again, a European Union official says everyone wants to get away after the lockdowns and enjoy their summer holidays, but that staying healthy and safer key because Corona virus isn't expected to go away, many you border restrictions are expected to be lifted next month.

  • Italy plans to reopen its internal borders next month.

  • This would allow Europeans to visit other European countries, though people from other continents may still have to wait to go there.

  • Cyril Vanier walks us through France, a nation that alone attracts almost 90 million tourists a year.

  • Stunning views, Majestic Castles, Centuries of history The Laura Valley is one of the crown jewels of French tourism, drawing six million visitors a year from all over the world, an industry crippled by the Corona virus after a nearly two month national confinement and with Borders mostly shut outside travel tourists and now a rare commodity, Chateau Showman, once owned by the Queen of France, is one of the first in the region to reopen its so calm.

  • And it's so peaceful here.

  • It's 10 thing to forget that there's a corona virus epidemic, but of course you can't.

  • In fact, the only reason the chateau was able to reopen this because here, too, there are strict social distancing guidelines.

  • Mask on gel on your hands.

  • There's a predetermined route that you must follow through the domain, and the number of visitors have been capped in order to avoid crowds.

  • It's offensive remark on it.

  • It's been a while since we haven't been out, so it feels good.

  • Just a trickle of visitors today, all of them locals, travel is still limited to 100 kilometer radius.

  • Martine and Jean Marie Away had plans to visit Denmark and Uzbekis Tan this summer That will have to wait in a way, this periods very good.

  • We often forget to visit these beautiful sites in France, but it's a magnificent country.

  • The chateau doesn't expect to see its usual foreign visitors this summer about 1/3 of its business, they say, but the domain manager does see a silver lining there.

  • I hope that the increase in French visitors who come because they can't travel abroad will make up for the foreign visitors who sadly, won't be able to come here in Paris.

  • However, there's no silver lining on the horizon.

  • The main attractions remain shut, the Eiffel Tower and the riverboats not far from here, The SEC rika the active thio of the Louvre Museum, all closed, not to mention restaurants and cafes.

  • And with Paris still considered a red zone for the Corona virus, there's no telling when any of them might be allowed to reopen 12th Trivia, Which of these countries is located closest to the equator Singapore, Sri Lanka, Philippines or Vietnam?

  • The island nation of Singapore is located only 85 miles north of the equator.

  • Singapore is an island, a country and a city, but it's not very large.

  • In terms of land area, it's less than half the size of Houston, Texas, and yet Singapore has almost three times the population of the American city.

  • So it's very densely packed with people.

  • And Singapore's government wanted to bring in more greenery and technology to the center of the island.

  • So it added a manmade mechanical forest, and it's time to go.

  • Climbing in Super Tree City, located in a waterfront park known as gardens by the bay, is super tree grove.

  • This'll mechanical forest is a utopia for nature in a very urban location.

  • Super Tree Grove was commissioned by the Singapore government with the intention of raising the quality of life for its residents by enhancing greenery and flora in the city.

  • This man made mechanical forest consists of 18 super trees.

  • Trees ranged between 80 to 160 feet high and are connected by a walkway, which allows visitors to cross between them and view the city from the treetops with their thick trunks and network of thin on your own like branches.

  • Each tree acts as a vertical garden.

  • Over 160,000 varieties of orchids, ferns and other climbing plants have been planted in the trees.

  • Trees also generate solar power.

  • 11 of the trees are fitted with solar photovoltaic systems that convert sunlight into energy.

  • This provides lighting that allows the trees to come alive at night, making this an all day, all season Horticultural heaven.

  • Captain Tom or of the United Kingdom is having an amazing season.

  • He just turned 100 years old last month.

  • He was hoping that a 100 lap walk around his garden would help Britain's National Health Service.

  • By raising £1000 about $1200 he raised more than $39 million that earned him a Guinness world record for the most money raised by a charity walk.

  • But then a single he made with British singer Michael Ball went to number one on the charts.

  • That earned Captain Mawr another world record for being the oldest person to hit number one.

  • But then he found out he was being awarded a knighthood for his fundraising Captain Moore says he's delighted and overawed.

  • There's more than a kernel of truth in saying it's a major honor.

  • Generally speaking for a captain who is able to marshal such a commanding at moral bull and brigadier list of accomplishments he could never keep private.

  • I'm Carla Zeus.

  • Want to give a shout out to Riverview School and all of our viewers watching in East Sandwich, Massachusetts.
