ワクチン効果か 高齢者の感染減 東京で20%が6%に

東京都の感染者数について、重症化リスクの高い65歳以上の割合は減少傾向で、都の担当者は、ワクチン接種が進んでいることも一因ではと分析している。

東京都の新規感染者のうち、65歳以上が占める割合を示したグラフを見ると、2021年3月ごろには、新規感染者の20%以上を占めていた65歳以上の割合が、6%台と減少傾向になっている。

Thanks.

Last year, we have so many people from many different countries to provide information on many countries. We had an unspoken mutual agreement that if one post information about one country, then the other people will study other countries so that we can cover as many as countries as we could.

It is too time consuming for one or two people to study so many countries.

由7月1日凌晨零時起禁止英國來港民航客機著陸



Yesterday old news and a post at LIHKG has reported this.

政府昨日宣布,由7月1日凌晨零時起,禁止從英國來港的民航客機著陸香港,並將英國列為極高風險A1組指明地區,阻止相關人士經轉機到港。

有升學顧問表示,不少英國留學生的家長擔心子女未能趕及回港。

有呼吸系統專科醫生認為,採取有關措施是有需要,以減低變種病毒傳入的風險。

The sad thing is that the UK government has still not done anything to stop the virus.

英國衛生大臣賈偉德料下月19日如期解除防疫措施

英國新冠病毒疫情反彈,不過新任衛生大臣賈偉德說,最後階段的大部份防疫措施,預計將會在下月19日如期解除。

賈偉德在國會下議院表示,雖然確診個案持續上升,但死亡人數維持在低水平,加上到下月19日,三分之二成年人將會完成接種兩劑疫苗,因此暫時無理由要第二度押後放寬日期。

首相約翰遜較早時向傳媒表示,全部科學顧問都認為下月19日很大機會是防疫措施的終點站,將可以盡量恢復疫情之前的生活。

英國過去一星期錄得11萬宗新個案,比前一個星期大幅增加七成,大部份個案感染Delta變種病毒株,當局因此把原本上星期的放寬期限,押後至下月19日。

Japan to step up health controls as Olympic athlete tests positive



TOKYO (AP) — Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga pledged Monday to strengthen health controls at airports after a Ugandan Olympic team member tested positive for COVID-19 at the town hosting their training camp, triggering concerns that the upcoming games will spread infections.

A Ugandan team member, reportedly a coach, tested positive on Saturday at Tokyo’s Narita airport and was quarantined there. But the rest of the nine-person team was allowed to travel more than 500 kilometers (300 miles) on a chartered bus to their pre-Olympics camp in the western prefecture of Osaka.

Three days later, a second Ugandan also tested positive for the virus, forcing seven town officials and drivers who had close contact with the team to self-isolate. The team members were quarantined at a local hotel.

Concerns escalated after it was announced that both Ugandans had the delta variant of the virus, which is believed to spread more easily.

In response to criticism of the case, Suga rushed to Tokyo’s Haneda international airport to inspect virus testing for arrivals and vowed to ensure appropriate border controls as growing numbers of Olympic and Paralympic participants enter Japan ahead of the July 23 opening of the games.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato later Monday said Japan plans to step up quarantine requirements for Olympic athletes and other participants from areas where the delta strain has been detected by requiring daily virus tests for seven days prior to departure to Japan — extended from the current four days —and up to 14 days after entry and training in isolation in the first three days.

The Uganda case illustrated that Japan’s border health controls can be easily breached, Tokyo Medical Association Chairman Haruo Ozaki said Sunday on NHK public television.

“Apparently the border controls are not adequate, even though there has been plenty of time to work on them,” he said.

Osaka Gov. Hirofumi Yoshimura said the entire team should have been quarantined at Narita airport.

Government officials initially defended the airport health controls as having properly detected and isolated the positive case, and said that contact tracing and isolation of those suspected of having had close contact was not their job but that of local health officials.

“No matter what measures you take, infected people would come in and it is unavoidable,” Japanese Olympic Committee President Yasuhiro Yamashita said at a news conference in Tokyo.

“Strict border control at airports is extremely important,” Yamashita said, urging the government to do more instead of pushing all the responsibility of contact tracing on local authorities.

Experts have noted a significant increase in the movement of people in Tokyo and other metropolitan areas since the easing of a state of emergency on June 21 and warned of signs of a resurgence of infections in the Tokyo region.

Tokyo on Monday reported 317 new cases, up from 236 from a week earlier, the ninth consecutive day of week-on-week increases, with an increase in cases of the delta variant. That could accelerate the resurgence to levels that might require another state of emergency during the Olympics, experts said.

More than 10 million Australians go under lockdown in fight against Delta variant



Four of Australia's eight capital cities are now under Covid-19 lockdown, as authorities struggle to contain fresh outbreaks of the highly infectious Delta variant.

Perth, the capital of Western Australia state, began a four-day lockdown at midnight Tuesday, while Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, will enter a three-day lockdown starting Tuesday evening.
They join New South Wales' capital, Sydney, and Darwin, capital of the Northern Territory, which are already under lockdown.
Collectively, the four cities have a population of more than 10.2 million people, according to government data. As of Monday afternoon, the country has 271 active cases, the majority of which are from New South Wales, according to the national health department
Australia was celebrated for its initial response to the pandemic and for getting its economy more or less back on track long ago.
But with that security has come complacency, particularly in the federal government, which failed to secure enough vaccine doses to prevent the regular "circuit breaker" lockdowns that come every time a handful of cases emerge, or even the longer restrictions the capital cities are experiencing now.
Residents of Perth and the neighboring Peel region must stay home except for urgent reasons after officials detected a third case, linked to the outbreak in Sydney.
And in Brisbane, the country's third largest city, people will be required to stay home except for essential work, health care, grocery shopping or exercise.

Sydney, home to a fifth of Australia's 25 million population, is under a two-week lockdown until July 9, while the lockdown in Darwin was extended for another 72 hours until Friday.
Concerns the Delta strain could spark significant outbreaks have also seen some form of restrictions in most other cities, with more than 20 million Australians, or about 80% of the population affected.
Authorities late on Monday said people age under 60 would now be able to get the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine if approved by their doctor, who will be covered by a no-fault indemnity scheme, to ramp up a sluggish immunization drive.
Vaccinations have also been made mandatory for high-risk aged-care workers and employees in quarantine hotels.
"I'm absolutely comfortable about the rollout through the aged care sector," Australia's chief medical officer Paul Kelly told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on Tuesday.
Lockdowns, swift contact tracing and strict social distancing rules have largely helped Australia keep its Covid-19 numbers relatively low, with just over 30,500 cases and 910 deaths -- but its vaccine rollout has hit several roadblocks.
Officials two weeks ago limited the use of AstraZeneca vaccines only to people over 60 due to blood clot concerns, while recommending Pfizer shots to everyone under 60 in a major change to its immunization drive.
Australia has fully vaccinated nearly 5% of its population, compared with more than 46% in the United States and 48% in the UK, according to Our World in Data. Its rates are more comparable with Indonesia and India, which, like much of the developing world, were left out of the agreements with pharmaceutical companies that secured hundreds of millions of vaccine doses for most of the rich world.

South Africa enters strict lockdown to combat 'extremely serious' impact of Delta variant



South Africa has entered at least two weeks of strict lockdown to combat a devastating third wave of Covid-19 linked to the more transmissible Delta variant.

The country is experiencing a massive surge in infections, President Cyril Ramaphosa said as he announced the new wideranging lockdown during a nationwide address on Sunday.
The third wave is currently centered on Gauteng, South Africa's economic engine. But scientists have said that it was a 'matter of days' before the impact of the Delta variant spreads to other provinces.

The restrictions are some of the strictest announced since the early months of the pandemic. All gatherings indoors and outdoors will be prohibited except for funerals and a curfew has been instituted from 9 pm and 4 am.
Alcohol sales are banned while travel in and out of worst-hit Gauteng province will be prohibited and restaurants will only be allowed for take-out and delivery; and schools closed.
"We are in the grip of a devastating wave that by all indications seems like it will be worse than those that preceded it. The peak of this third wave looks set to be higher than the previous two waves," said Ramaphosa, adding that the peak of the third wave could also last longer than the past two waves.

Vaccines have had little impact



Around 2.7 million people have received a Covid-19 vaccine shot in South Africa, one of the worst-hit countries on the African continent.
Public health experts have told CNN that the late start and relatively slow pace of vaccinations mean that vaccinations will have little positive impact on the third wave in the country.
"We are doing everything we can to make sure that the vaccines are here," said Ramaphosa, stressing that public health measures like masking and avoiding gatherings are critical.
Multiple health professionals in both the private and public sectors in Johannesburg, Gauteng's largest city, have described to CNN how hospitals are nearing capacity and struggling to accommodate the sick. Beds are limited, they say, but also a lack of trained staff to treat patients.
Some severe patients have been evacuated to other provinces to access critical care.

Delta variant spreading across Africa



Delta variant spreading across Africa
The stricter lockdown measures come after a group of scientists briefed the public on Saturday with details on how quickly the Delta variant took over in the country.
"The new variant seems to not only be rising, but it has started to dominate the infections in South Africa," said Tulio de Oliveira, director of KZN Research Innovation & Sequencing Platform (KRISP). Early this year, KRISP identified a different variant, now known as the Beta variant, that ripped through South Africa in an intense second wave.
While more studies need to be completed, de Oliveira believes that genomic surveillance will show that the third wave in South Africa is directly linked to the emergence of the Delta variant.

The Delta variant is now spreading fast globally and is present in more than 85 known countries, he said. "In Africa, it seems to be very widespread also. With many sites in Southern Africa, East Africa, Central Africa, and West Africa."
In neighboring Namibia, the Delta variant has yet to be detected but the country is grappling with a spike in Covid infections with more than 500 casualties recorded from the viral disease in June, according to data by the country's health ministry.
Over 19,000 of Namibia's 2.5 million people are currently infected with Covid-19, stretching the country's beleaguered healthcare system.
According to records by the World Health Organization, nearly 85,000 people have tested positive to Covid in Namibia, and only around 123,000 vaccine doses were administered as of 24th June.
Namibia's public health facilities are also battling a shortage of oxygen supplies with many Covid patients requiring breathing aids.

Los Angeles County Recommends Indoor Masking

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health strongly recommended people wear masks indoors in public places -- regardless of vaccination status -- as a precautionary measure against the Delta variant.

In the week ending June 12, Delta variants comprised of nearly half of all variants sequenced, L.A. County -- the nation’s most populous -- said in a statement.

Ho Chi Minh City Extends Virus Curbs

Vietnam’s economic hub of Ho Chi Minh City will maintain Covid-19 social distancing measures for an undetermined time starting Tuesday amid a growing coronavirus outbreak across the metropolis, newspaper Tuoi Tre reported, citing Deputy Mayor Duong Anh Duc at a Monday press conference.

Ho Chi Minh City, which began its anti-virus measures May 31, reported 3,492 local virus cases as of this morning out of the nationwide tally of 12,736 patients from late April, according to data from the health ministry.

Restrictions include shuttering of establishments from gyms to karaoke bars and restricting public transportation, ride-sharing services and taxis.

U.S. Says Don’t Travel to UAE, Uganda

The U.S. increased its travel warning for the United Arab Emirates and four African countries to the highest risk level, telling residents not to go to those nations because of Covid-19.

The UAE has one of the world’s highest vaccination rates, but daily new cases have continued to hover around 2,000 since March. Liberia, Mozambique, Uganda, and Zambia have all experienced recent outbreaks and were put in the same Level 4 category as the UAE, according to a State Department statement.

The revisions follow updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has also led to the lowering of advisories for countries such as Mexico, Canada, Japan and Ireland.
