Thousands protest in US against coronavirus lockdown restrictions

Thousands took to the streets to protest in the United State to protest against stay-at-home orders imposed by state governors, after President Donald Trump encouraged people to defy coronavirus lockdown imposed by state governors.

Stay-at-home measures, which experts say are essential to slow the spread of the virus, have battered the US economy and more than 22 million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits in the past month.

Demonstrations to demand an end have previously erupted at a few spots in Texas, Wisconsin and the capitols of Ohio, Minnesota, Michigan and Virginia.
