The latest developments in the spread of the new Corona virus in the world

What follows are the latest developments related to the spread of the new Corona virus in the world in light of the latest numbers, new measures and notable events:

French President Emmanuel Macron announced on Tuesday evening the easing of restrictions imposed since October 30 to contain the Covid-19 epidemic, with the decrease in the number of new infections in France. The restrictions will be eased in three phases: on December 1, then before Christmas and early 2021.

Australia's health minister announced Tuesday that Canberra will likely require people wishing to enter the country to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in advance.

No final decision has been made yet about the restrictions that will be in effect when the vaccine against Covid-19 is on the market, as confirmed by Health Minister Greg Hunt.

But he hinted that the entry requirement might be a strict quarantine for two weeks or a vaccination.

These statements came as the Australian airline "Qantas" announced earlier that it would require international travelers to receive the Covid-19 vaccine before traveling on its airlines, making it the first major airline to adopt this measure.

On Monday, the World Health Organization considered that the mini-celebration of Christmas, away from extended family gatherings, is without a doubt the "best option" in the time of the pandemic in most countries of the world.

German regions called for a limit of 10 persons from several families participating in the Christmas and New Year holidays. Children under the age of 14 are not included in this number. The regions also recommend putting participants before and after the holidays in stone.

She will discuss these measures Wednesday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The new Corona virus has caused the death of 1,397,322 people in the world since the WHO office in China reported the emergence of the disease at the end of December, according to a census conducted by Agence France-Presse according to official sources on Tuesday at 11:00 GMT.

More than 59,256,310 people around the world have been infected with the emerging coronavirus.

The United States is the country most affected by the number of deaths, with 257,707 deaths, followed by Brazil with 169,485 deaths, then India with 134,218 deaths, Mexico with 101,926 deaths, and the United Kingdom with 55,230 deaths.

Russia confirmed Tuesday that its "Sputnik-V" vaccine against the emerging corona virus, developed by the "Gamalia" Research Center in Moscow, is 95% effective.

A statement issued by the center, the Russian Ministry of Health and the Russian sovereign fund involved in developing the vaccine indicated that these are preliminary results of experiments on volunteers 42 days after the injection of the first dose.

However, the number of cases used to calculate the efficacy rate was not mentioned.

The British laboratory, "AstraZeneca" and the University of Oxford, announced Monday that their vaccine is approximately 70% effective.

The effectiveness of the vaccine developed by the Pfizer / Bionic Alliance is 95% effective for preventing Covid-19, according to the full results of a large-scale clinical trial announced last week.

Passengers arriving to the United Kingdom will be able to reduce the quarantine period, starting from mid-December, in the event that the infection test is negative five days after their arrival, as announced by the British government.

Hundreds of flights were canceled Tuesday at Shanghai's largest international airport, east China, after several COVID-19 cases linked to air cargo employees were detected.

The Finnish capital, which until now was immune from the outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic, is imposing very strict new restrictions due to the outbreak of cases, as its mayor announced Tuesday. Schools, libraries and swimming pools will be closed, and public events will be banned in Helsinki.

The date these restrictions will come into effect will be announced at the end of the week.
