New South Wales, the only state considered an active hot spot for the Australian virus, reported 10 new cases on Thursday.

Australia enjoyed the same success as neighboring New Zealand in suppressing the spread of COVID-19 in the early weeks of the pandemic. Australia adopted a strategy of repression while New Zealand pursued complete eradication.

This strategy has been successful in New Zealand, which has been running 76 days without infection spreading in the community and has only active cases among quarantined people who are traveling abroad.

When Australia imposed restrictions on its locking, violations of infection control in hotel quarantine led to the spread of communities in the state of Victoria.

In other developments in the Asia-Pacific region:

Indian virus case another 32,695 jumped, bringing the country closer to 1 million and forcing a new lock on the popular west coast state of Goa two weeks after it reopened for tourists. The new confirmed cases brought the national total to 968,876. The Ministry of Health also reports a high 606 deaths every day, bringing the total to 24,915. The ministry said the recovery rate continued to increase at 63%.

– Tokyo reported 286 new cases of the corona virus on Thursday, a record for the city, Governor Yuriko Koike said, raising Japan’s alarm might reopen its economy too quickly. The previous record for new cases in Tokyo was 243 on July 10. Japan has never had a total closure but the government is asking companies to close and people to work from home under the state of emergency declared in April. That has been lifted and restaurants, schools and shops have reopened and people will return to work in crowded commuter trains. One reason for the recent increase is an increase in testing, said Koike. Separately, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe acknowledged the need to re-examine the government’s “Go to campaign”, which offers discounts for travel in Japan, which will begin next week. “We see a situation with a high level of anxiety,” Abe said. Tourism is one of the sectors hardest hit by the huge impact of this pandemic, causing the world’s third largest economy to fall into recession. Japan has confirmed less than 23,000 cases of the corona virus and around 1,000 deaths.
