It’s been revealed that in China the international flights have been cut back, and Chinese students keep wondering if they’ll ever be able to make it home.
NY Times reported that in Singapore, the citizens who have recently returned have to share their phones’ location data with the authorities on a daily basis in order to prove that they’re sticking to the quarantine plan implemented by the government.
Drastic measures are revived
There have been a lot of drastic measures taken in China due to the coronavirus pandemic, which triggered a world crisis and shook the healthcare systems and economies worldwide.
The online publication mentioned above also offered readers an example as to how drastic these measures still are in Taiwan for instance: “a man who had traveled to Southeast Asia was fined $33,000 for sneaking out to a club when he was supposed to be on lockdown in his home.”
Across Asia, there are various countries and cities that seemed to have brought the coronavirus epidemic under control and they’re suddenly tightening their borders and imposing strict containment measures.
They’re reportedly terrified of a brand new wave of infections that could be imported from other parts of the world.
“The moves portend a worrisome sign for the United States, Europe and the rest of the world still battling a surging outbreak: Any country’s success with containment could be tenuous, and the world could remain on a kind of indefinite lockdown,” NY Times writes.
