After a period of isolation and blockade measures, the epidemic situation slowed down, and many countries have taken steps to restart the economy. The relevant restrictions have been relaxed, but India, Iran and other countries have rebounded. The analysis said that it is related to the relaxation measures. However, the EU, the epicenter of the epidemic some time ago, plans to achieve internal free passage by the end of this month.
"Counterattack" in some countries
As of 15:31, June 6, Beijing time, the cumulative number of confirmed cases worldwide has reached 6,805,315, with a total of 393,646 deaths. Among them, the cumulative number of deaths in Brazil has surpassed Italy, becoming the third country with the largest number of deaths in the world, second only to the United States and Britain, and the cumulative number of diagnoses has been second only to the United States.
On June 5, local time, India set a new high for new cases in a single day. The emergence of new crown epidemics in many countries in the Middle East has rebounded significantly, including the number of newly diagnosed cases of new crowns in Iran on the 4th. Behind the surge in cases in these areas, most are related to loosening restrictions.
As of 5th local time, the number of confirmed cases in India increased by 9851 within 24 hours, setting a new high for new cases in a single day. For the reasons for the surge in cases, the Associated Press said on the 5th that after India suddenly announced the closure of the country in late March, thousands of migrant workers had to choose to go home because of unemployment. Since then, there have been a surge of infections in rural areas. At present, the Indian government has partially restored train services and domestic flights, and allowed shops and manufacturing to reopen. Experts warn that the peak of India's epidemic will not reach its peak until a few weeks later.
The Iranian Ministry of Health announced on the 4th local time that there were 3574 newly diagnosed cases in the country, with a total of 164270 diagnosed cases. Health Minister Namaki said that the surge in newly diagnosed cases was mainly due to improved detection capabilities and a lack of protection awareness among the public. The British media said on the 5th that Iran's single-day diagnosis reached a record high, which caused people to worry about the second wave of outbreaks in the Middle East.
At the end of the month, the EU realizes free passage
In fact, not only India and Iran, the global epidemic prevention and control situation is still grim, and the resumption of production and production has brought great difficulty to epidemic prevention and control. Both the United States and Europe are faced with the problem of epidemic prevention after resumption of work. How to balance the epidemic situation and the economy has become a top priority.
On the 5th local time, EU Home Affairs Commissioner Ilva Johnson said that from June 15 onwards, most EU countries will open their internal borders, and a small number of countries, such as Spain, hope to open their internal borders by the end of June. This also means that by the end of June, free passage will resume within the EU region.
The EU's external borders, that is, foreign travel to the EU or EU travel to foreign countries, will gradually be liberalized in July, but there is no specific timetable and plan. Under the Schengen Agreement, the countries of the European Union were originally able to pass freely. However, under the impact of the new crown epidemic, the EU countries lacked unified coordination and closed their borders to carry out epidemic prevention. This caused great controversy at the time.
