COVID-19 : The Latest World Wrap-Up

With over a year of the world struggling with the coronavirus pandemic, things are now starting to look better for a few countries than others. In a recent report, it was announced that the infection rates in the US had witnessed a downturn after the longest time. The rate of infection as well as death rates in the US have dropped down significantly, at their lowest level on weekends.

A two-week lockdown has been announced in Malaysia, while people from certain parts of China have also been restricted to their homes. South Africa is also set to impose stricter rules of lockdown. India continues to deal with one of the worst COVID-19 situations at the moment. State-wise lockdowns and precautions are put in place but there still seems to be acute shortage of oxygen as well as hospital beds, which is continually trying to be met by donations and help from across the world. New Zealand, which has the Trans-Tasman Bubble in place, is in talks with other destinations to open the channel for travel without quarantine. There has been the announcement of a week’s lockdown in Victoria, Melbourne, which means that the Kiwi travellers will have to stay put there for the duration.
