Tunisia will open its sea, land and air borders on June 27, authorities said on Monday.

The government said it will also ease all inter-city restrictions.

The North African country has recorded 1,070 cases and 48 deaths, with only two people still in hospital.

Tunisia had forecast its economy will shrink up to 4.3% this year, the steepest drop since independence in 1956.

It said the important tourism sector could lose $1.4 billion and 400,000 jobs this year due to the pandemic.
