Experts put the country’s “gold standard” in the example of the United States, criticizing the White house approach to dealing with the coronavirus and the lack of stringent national measures to curb the pandemic. But those States, experts say, too early announcement of his “victory over the pandemic” and lifted restrictions.

As noted 9 News, it becomes clear that the success in containing the disease, which authorities say the number of countries under conditions of constant mutation of the virus often are temporary.

So, Australia is still in the beginning of the month was cited as the “gold standard” in response to the pandemic. It is one of the first in the world to introduce restrictive measures. The who declared a pandemic on 11 March, and the government of Australia on the first of February has closed its borders to foreign visitors who have recently visited China, and then on March 19 adopted these measures in relation to all non-citizens and non-residents.

At the end of March on the continent have banned public gatherings and nonessential travel within the country, and a few months, the pandemic was generally under the control of Australian authorities. May the eighth Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison announced the plan of opening the country by July, the government began to collapse, the measures for social distancing. According to him, since the beginning of the pandemic in Australia was only about seven thousand of infections and 97 deaths. The head of the international center of research of ACCESS Health International Dr. William Haseltine called Australia as an example for the United States, noting that this country, along with China and New Zealand, has effectively managed outbreaks of coronavirus, and due to the testing, contact tracing and direction of the new cases are kept to a minimum.

the Situation changed dramatically with the removal of restrictive measures. Two weeks ago, Australian authorities were forced to isolate 6.6 million people in the state of Victoria following the outbreak of the coronavirus in the city of Melbourne, which occurred in one of the luxury hotels on the seventh of July. Was closed the border between the States of Victoria and New South Wales, the wearing of masks became mandatory in public places. However, these measures did not deter the surge of the pandemic. According to the Prime Minister of the state Daniel Andrews on Wednesday in Victoria were registered with 403 new cases COVID-19, which is the third largest daily increase in the number of cases since the beginning of the pandemic. According to the Johns Hopkins University, in Australia as of Friday was more than 13 thousand cases and 140 deaths. Thus, in July it was about the same cases as for the previous three months of the pandemic.

Hong Kong received a high rating who for quick addressingtion to the pandemic back in January, when it was introduced the necessary sanitary restrictions. The local government has taken further steps to curb the second wave of the pandemic in March, when Hong Kong residents began to return to the city, bringing with it a virus. Authorities have banned the entry of Hong Kong residents, stopped the transit through the city’s airport and imposed strict quarantine and inspection on arrival. Gyms were closed, the sale of alcohol in bars is forbidden, but most restaurants and cafes ceased operations indefinitely. As a result, for many weeks of daily cases of infection in Hong Kong was reduced to single digits, and sometimes to zero.

Despite all this, Hong Kong is faced with the “third wave” of infections since the sixth of July, when authorities announced a possible “uncontrolled growth” infections after the removal of restrictive measures. As a result, on Friday in Hong Kong was recorded 123 cases of the disease, which is the highest one-day increase since the beginning of the pandemic, said the representatives of the Hong Kong Department of health. In Hong Kong this week, public meetings were again limited, they can participate no more than four people, gyms were closed, and arriving foreigners must carry proof of negative test COVID-19. “If this trend continues, to cope with the situation will be very difficult,” said Dr Chuang SHUK-Kwan of the Hong Kong centre for health protection, adding that the Department quarantine the infected and the hospital gradually reach the limit.

Japan, according to experts, effectively responded to the coronavirus. May 25, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe lifted the state of emergency, saying at a briefing that the authorities could put an end to the outbreak after about a month and a half, going their own way.

However, the second half of July, the number of cases began to grow at a rapid pace: so, on Thursday, according to the Japanese Ministry of health, the country recorded the highest daily record – 981 case of infection and two deaths. The Japanese authorities believe that the outbreak of the disease outside of hospitals could appear in persons who were carrying the disease without symptoms. Tokyo appealed to the citizens with the appeal not to forget about the mask and observe social distance.

Finally, within a few months Israel also cited the who as a successful example in the fight against the pandemic coronavirus. In response to rapidly imposed restrictions on travel and mass closure of enterprises, the country largely resisted the spread of the virus, registering the death rate was much lower than in many countries of the Western world. While coronavirus has been raging in the United States and Europe, the Israeli authorities have already started to talk about the opening of the economy and the lifting of the measures, observers say.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on April 18 announced that the country succeeded in their struggle, showing the global example of “in defense of life and the blocking of the outbreak”. He predicted that Israel would become an example to restart the economy. However, just a few weeks after the opening of restaurants, shopping centers and beaches in Israel is observed 50-fold increase in the number of cases of coronavirus: with approximately 20 new cases per day in mid-may to over 1,000 in less than two months.

In early July, Netanyahu announced that gyms, pools, halls for events, pubs and many other facilities will be closed indefinitely, and restaurants and places of worship to work with a limited number of visitors. Despite a sharp rise in unemployment – it is in Israel reached 20 percent last week, the authorities were forced to re-introduce a hard limit and close most businesses. However, on Thursday in Israel has registered a new record in 1 819 new cases within 24 hours.

Although many of these new States, incidence rates remain low compared with countries where the pandemic is gaining momentum – for example, in the United States and Brazil, according to analysts, the increase in the number of cases, those that announced a “victory over the pandemic”, shows that despite the most stringent preventive measures, the virus is indeed a serious threat. According to experts, complete elimination of the risk of infection will be impossible until then, until you find the vaccine and outbreaks of disease will continue in different regions of the world.
