For a year and a half, New Zealand has been fighting hard to protect the region from the corona virus. To achieve this, he used severe border closures and severe imprisonment each time an infection arose, which allowed him to live normally for a long time. But it has already decided to abandon its strategy, unable to control the delta variation domestically and an eruption that appeared in August. Completely intolerant On the other hand, take into account vaccination rates to ease restrictions.
Its prime minister, progressive Jacintha Artern, announced the change on Monday. It is important to get rid of the virus because we do not have vaccines. Now we have them, so we can start changing the way we do things. We have more opportunities, we have good reasons to feel optimistic about the future, but we can not rush, “he told reporters. Govt zero , 4,408 infections (including 26 this Tuesday) and only 27 deaths. However, the change was forced by the situation in Auckland, the country’s largest city, where the worst outbreak (about 1,330 infections) since August has been in effect for seven weeks. “Returning to zero cases is incredibly difficult,” the president admitted.
China is the only country committed to eradicating the virus
According to the order, this will be a step-by-step process in which the restrictions will be relaxed in stages. Among the first activities announced, groups of up to 10 people from a maximum of two homes are allowed to meet on the streets of Auckland from today or reopen childhood education centers. Severe closures end when the majority of the population has full terms, with only 49% of people over the age of 12 receiving both levels. Nothing is said about when they will open their borders.
Against the backdrop of other countries in the New Zealand Asia-Pacific region, after months of betting on total annihilation of the Govt, new strains have resigned themselves to living with it due to difficulties in stopping population fatigue. And damage to their economy. This is the case with Vietnam, whose gross domestic product (GDP) fell 6.1% in the third quarter after being locked up for almost three months due to the progress of the delta variation. Inspired by the business sector, Prime Minister Pam Minh Chin acknowledged that the epidemic had reached a new stage and that it was necessary to learn to live with it.
Australia, another ‘Covit Zero’ stronghold, will also relax restrictions when the vaccine increases
Another fortress of strategy Govt zero , Australia, has announced plans to ease restrictions as vaccine rates rise. Currently, 46% of the target population has full regulation and is expected to reach 80% this week with at least one dose. Cities like Melbourne are expected to come out with the last lock closed at the end of October with effect from August. Since November, Australians and expatriates who have already been vaccinated can enter the country by offering only one week of isolation at home, not two at the government center now required.
For its part, with 80% of its population already fully vaccinated, Singapore has also chosen to live with the virus, now using measurements such as hospitalization and mortality rather than the number of cases to guide reopening.
China is the only country that is committed to eradicating the virus from its territory, following the letter ordered from Wuhan: massive trials, severe imprisonment and long border closures. Proof that this is not going to change soon is the macro isolation center for travelers entering the country in the southern city of Guangzhou, with an immediate start with 5,000 beds. The country hosting the Winter Olympics next February is planning similar facilities in other cities.
