US, Brazil, and others lift lockdown earlier. That turns deadly.



US, Brazil, and others lift lockdown earlier. That turns deadly.
CNN analysis for Policy in 18 countries it has been shown that most countries that have now been designated by the European Union as controlling the epidemic have only begun to reduce their regulations after seeing a sustained decline in the new case of Covid-19 daily.

In contrast, three of the four countries with the highest number of deaths and the highest number of cases in the world – the United States, Brazil, and India – have never been completely closed or started to reopen before their number of cases starts to fall.

The EU officially approved a series of recommendations from 15 countries which it deemed safe enough to allow its citizens to travel to its territory on Tuesday. To get the list, countries must check a number of boxes: their new cases per 100,000 citizens during the previous 14 days must be equal to or below the European Union, and they must have a stable or downward trend from new cases. this period compared to the previous 14 days.

This block will also consider what actions are taken by countries, such as contact tracing, and how reliable each country is.

The list includes Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, Uruguay. China, where the virus originated, is also on the list, but the EU will only offer the entry of China on the condition of mutual regulation.

Examination of coronavirus responses in 14 countries shows that they have one key similarity. Despite economic pressures, most refuse to ease social distance measures while the number of their cases is still rising. And when they lift the lock, they do it in a be careful, gradually.
Scientists say the possibility is locked prevent hundreds of millions of infections around the world. A modeling study published in the scientific journal Nature last month estimated that in early April, a halt policy saved 285 million people in China from infection, 49 million in Italy and 60 million in the US.

“I don’t think any human effort has ever saved so many lives in such a short period of time. There are enormous personal costs to staying home and canceling events, but the data shows that every day makes a big difference,” said the study’s lead author, Solomon Hsiang, a professor and director of the Global Policy Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley.

How successful the lock is depends on a number of reasons, including whether it was enforced early enough. No two locks are the same, so while people in countries like Italy or Spain face fines if they wander outside their homes for reasons other than important, in Japan, staying at home is more a recommendation than an order.

Australia, Canada, New Zealand quickly limit travel, while in other countries including Algeria, Georgia and Morocco, children are the first to see the impact of a pandemic when schools close.

Other steps include orders to stay at home, closure of non-essential shops, quarantine and isolation. Some countries, such as Algeria, Rwanda, Montenegro and China have experienced outbreaks after restrictions were lifted. That prompted officials to reintroduce some actions locally.

In China, the capital city of Beijing was locked in part last month after a new cluster linked to the food market. Montenegro brought back the ban at a mass event last week after seeing a new outbreak of cases after three weeks free of viruses. And in Rwanda, the health authorities put a number of villages into a new lockdown last week after a new case emerged there.

But the restrictions launched to ward off this disease also severely damage the economy and exacerbate existing inequalities in education and workplaces, as well as between gender, race and socioeconomic background.

When shops and schools close and almost all trips stop, hundreds of millions of people around the world suddenly find themselves unemployed. The impact on the economy is one of the reasons why several leaders, including US President Donald Trump, have been pushing for reopening quickly, even when infectious disease experts warn about lifting restrictions too early.
