Asian countries re-impose tighter restrictions due to Delta variant outbreak



Asian countries

On Friday July 30th, 2021 Asian countries from Australia to Japan and the Philippines announced stricter restrictive measures for Covid-19.

This is due to the fact that the region is struggling with the spread of the virus.

The Covid-19 outbreak is getting worse with the Delta variant.

The Delta variant that was first identified in India has become a global concern, prompting even countries

with advanced vaccination programs such as the US, Israel and Singapore to re-impose some restrictions.


However, the Delta variant is having a bigger impact on Asian countries and many countries in the region

are facing record cases now due to low vaccination rates.

In a report, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) described the Delta variant as

contagious as chickenpox and can cause severe illness.

The CDC report also says this variant is also more likely to bypass the protections offered by vaccines.

Dicky Budiman, an epidemiologist from Griffith University in Queensland told Reuters:

“We know from research that the Delta variant has a viral load 1,000 times higher than the previous

variants, which is why at Why do we see more cases because it’s transmitted more easily and faster?”

He also said Delta seems to cause more severe symptoms, especially related to shortness of breath.

Sydney is currently facing its toughest measures ever, including mandatory testing in the hardest-hit

suburbs as the number of infections has remained at a five-week high.

Since the introduction of restrictive measures.

From Monday (August 2), the military force will help police in the Australian city of Sydney

check people who have tested positive for the virus in isolation.

On Friday (July 30), the Philippines announced a plan to blockade the capital Manila with a population of

more than 13 million for two weeks to prevent the spread of Delta and protect the country’s health system.

On the same day, India reported its highest number of daily cases in three weeks, the latest evidence of a worrying upward trend that has forced a state to shut down amid fears of a wave of infections. other infections.

In Japan, the government on July 30 also proposed a state of emergency until the end of August in three prefectures near the Tokyo Olympic venue and the western district of Osaka, because Covid-19 cases are increasing sharply.

Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura said:

“The infection situation is spreading more and more.”

On the other hand, CDC director Rochelle Walensky said earlier this week, new studies have shown fully vaccinated people carry the virus as much as unvaccinated people and this suggests they can transmit the virus.
