Millions of Christians around the world on Sunday are celebrating Easter under restrictions because of coronavirus surges, but the hard-hit United States made good news as it crossed the milestone of 100 million people receiving at least one vaccine shot.
In the UAE, the Christian community is observing another subdued Easter amid Covid-19 restrictions. However, with Covid-19 restrictions on gatherings at churches and most people being at work on Sunday, it has meant that Christians in the UAE will not be having much festivities this time around. Churches streamed live services of the Easter Vigil online through social media platforms on Saturday evening.
Pope Francis, leading an Easter vigil service scaled down due to Covid-19, said on Saturday he hoped the dark times of the pandemic would end and that people could rediscover “the grace of everyday life”.
Worrying spikes in infections in many parts of the world, even as vaccine rollouts gather pace, have forced the reimposition of deeply unpopular restrictions. Italy began a strict Easter lockdown on Saturday, with the entire country deemed a high-risk “red zone” during a time when families usually get together.
