Fear spread again regarding Corona in Singapore

Covid in South East Asia: Southeast Asian countries are once again troubled by the fear of Corona. Governments are beginning to worry about the rapid spread of respiratory infections due to new variants related to Covid-19. For this reason, the governments of Southeast Asia have decided to re-implement old measures to control it. People have been appealed to wear masks at the airport. Thermal scanners will be restarted to check fever. Governments are aiming to slow down the spread of many types of germs, such as Covid variants, which cause flu, pneumonia and other respiratory diseases. Singapore’s Health Ministry cited the rapid spread of infections as the reason for the increase in cases. May be due to many factors. This includes declining population immunity and increased travel and community contact during year-end travel and festival seasons.

New variant of Corona responsible

Its website said that cases infected with JN.1, a variant of BA.2.86, currently account for more than 60 percent of COVID-19 cases in Singapore. While BA.2.86 and its variants have been classified by the World Health Organization as variants of interest on 21 November 2023. MOH said there is currently no indication globally or locally that BA.2.86 or JN.1 are more infectious than other Covid variants or cause more severe disease.

Indonesia appealed to people not to travel

On the other hand, Indonesia’s Health Ministry has also requested Indonesians to stop their travel plans to areas where Covid-19 cases are increasing. Covid cases have almost doubled in Malaysia in the last one week. Indonesian authorities have reinstalled thermal scanners at some border crossings. The ferry terminal and Jakarta’s main international airport are among them.

Fear of Corona is spreading among people again

In view of the guidelines issued by the governments of South Asia regarding Covid and the appeal for masks, fear has arisen among the people. Amidst the increase in Corona cases, people fear that this epidemic may pose a risk again. Earlier this week, Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong said on Facebook that the government was looking to reinstate strict rules.
