To recap, here are some of the day’s key developments:

- French President Emmanuel Macron extended the country's lockdown measures until 11 May
- UK Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said the country’s outbreak was “still not past the peak", but hailed "positive signs" in the data
- Oil prices steadied after a deal to slash output by 10%
