Europe's coronavirus death toll topped 100,000 on Sunday, according to an NBC News tally, less than 24 hours after protesters took to the streets of several U.S. state capitol buildings this weekend, to demand an end to shutdown orders. In Texas some of the demonstrators brandished signs with phrases like, "This is tyranny, not quarantine" and "Open now!" While others, in Maryland, marched or drove their cars carrying placards against the encroachment of personal liberties. Meanwhile, other U.S. states began preparing to ease restrictions related to the outbreak. Residents in Florida returned to the beach Saturday and three northeastern states reopened boatyards and marinas for personal use only.
