New Activities, New Reports and Highlights: An update on the latest developments in the Govt-19 epidemic worldwide.
– Austria: Those who have not been vaccinated since Monday –
Austrian President Alexander Shalenberg announced on Monday that the lock-in for those who have not been vaccinated or recently been infected with Govt-19 is aimed at preventing the first new cases in the EU.
The persons concerned have no right to leave their home except for shopping, sports or medical care. This measure is applicable from the age of 12 and unannounced tests will be carried out.
65% of the population has a complete immunization schedule, which is lower than the European average of 67%.
– Germany: Towards Massive Return to Teleworking –
Germany is preparing for a major return to teleworking, according to a bill discussed by the AFP on Sunday in an effort to stem the new wave of the epidemic.
The reintroduction of the homework rule, which was abolished in early July, comes as Germany faces a worrying resurgence of the epidemic.
With 289 cases per 100,000 people, the infection rate hit a new record in the most populous country in Europe on Sunday.
– Israel vaccines 5-11 year olds –
After the United States, Israel on Sunday gave the green light to vaccinate children between the ages of 5 and 11 in Pfizer / Bioentech doses in hopes of preventing the Govt-19 epidemic.
– Morocco strengthens border controls –
Morocco, a major tourist destination, has decided to tighten border controls as pollution continues to rise in Europe.
In addition to the mandatory health pass and negative PCR tests, upon arrival in Morocco, dual testing will be carried out with thermal cameras and electronic thermometers and antigenic tests.
These measures are of concern to all people coming from France, several EU countries and “List B” countries such as the United Kingdom, Algeria and Tunisia.
– Postponement of vaccination duty on Martinique –
Faced with opposition from hospital unions, the French government has decided to postpone vaccination duty for caregivers on Martinique Island in the French West Indies until December 31.
The public free examination will also be maintained to this day, which will correspond to the conclusion of a health emergency in this foreign sector.
– Nearly 5.1 million people died –
The WHO office in China said the epidemic has killed nearly 5.1 million people worldwide since the outbreak in late December 2019, according to official sources’ AFP as of noon on Sunday.
The United States has the highest death toll (763,064) ahead of Brazil (611,283), India (463,530), Mexico (291,089) and Russia (255,386).
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that the number of deaths directly and indirectly linked to Govt-19 may be two to three times higher than officially established.
