Singapore’s Health Minister Ong Ye Kung said in an interview that the number of corona cases is likely to increase due to increased movement of people due to the growth of trade and the economy.
He asked people to be mentally prepared for the matter. He emphasized the need to focus on corona vaccination and said that Singapore will now reopen in four phases starting Tuesday.
Transport restrictions will be eased and immunization lanes will be opened. In which travel between Singapore and selected countries will be allowed without being in isolation. Instead of staying at home notice, the emphasis will be on frequent testing.
With 80 per cent of Singapore’s population vaccinated against coronavirus, the country is now in the transition phase. At this stage, a maximum of five vaccinations will be allowed in bars and restaurants. From August 10, people will be able to eat food from the fair and also go to the coffee shop.
In the US, the CDC report also urged people who have been previously infected with corona and have recovered, as one study found that those who ignored the advice were twice as likely to be infected with corona again. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Valensky said the best way to protect against the delta variant is to get vaccinated.
People who have been previously infected with corona and six months after recovery are more likely to be infected with the delta variant. Meanwhile, a prominent Indian-American Congressman, Raja Krishnamurthy, expressed disappointment over the United States’ allocation of only 7.5 million doses of Corona to India and urged the Biden administration to expand its global vaccination assistance program.
Raja Krishnamurthy, Pramila Jayapal, Senators Jeff Merkel and Elizabeth Ware have introduced the Nullifying Opportunities for Variant You Infect and Deceit Act. In whose favor there are 116 members. If this bill is passed, the government will be able to use $34 billion to make eight billion doses of the corona vaccine and help other countries fight the corona epidemic.
