More countries lift restrictions against Covid-19, WHO advises caution

Yesterday, around the world, a series of countries from Asia, Europe and the Americas chose May 1 as the time to start applying regulations to ease or lift restrictions on epidemic prevention. Covid-19.

In Europe, from May 1, restaurants, bars and shops in Greece will not require vaccination certificates. Bulgaria has lifted all entry restrictions for international visitors. Germany stops imposing mandatory quarantine for people with Covid-19.

In the Americas, Chile reopened all land borders from May 1.

The first day of May also marks Kuwait’s lifting of all Covid-19 prevention measures, wearing a mask is no longer a mandatory requirement both indoors and outdoors, all people entering, regardless of Even the status of vaccination against Covid-19 is not required to do a PCR test.

In Southeast Asia, tourists who have been fully vaccinated when entering Thailand do not have to be tested by PCR. Malaysia also applies similar regulations, while travel insurance is not a prerequisite for foreigners entering the country.

These are clear examples that the world has made significant progress in the battle with the SARS-CoV-2 virus to bring life back to normal. This optimistic picture comes from the Covid-19 situation in many countries around the world, which has continued to show signs of cooling down in the past 7 days. The number of new cases and deaths globally in the week to May 1 continued to decline sharply. This is a trend that has maintained continuously from the end of March to the beginning of April, when countries promoted booster injection campaigns and injections for children.

However, according to the recommendations of the World Health Organization, countries should still maintain surveillance of Covid-19 cases . Because, although many countries are gradually lifting epidemic prevention measures and returning to life as before, the SARS-CoV-2 virus has not disappeared, is still spreading, mutating and causing deaths. The threat of a dangerous new variant remains, and the world still doesn’t fully understand the long-term consequences for recovered cases.

Speaking at the latest press conference, World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus emphasized:

“Now is not the time to ignore the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the risk of them continuing to mutate. In fact, they are still killing people around the world. The reality is that we’re slowly reducing tracking for this virus as we reduce testing. We should still maintain prudent solutions in disease surveillance. The European Union is an example. They remain cautious about this collective risk. And I think their decision is based on sound scientific evidence and data.”

Therefore, according to the World Health Organization, in the context that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is still creeping and lurking in people’s lives, perhaps a cautious and safe approach to Covid-19 is still is a solid shield on the journey to bring the world back to normal life as before.
