Unrestricted exits to France, lifting of the state of emergency in Japan: some countries are now easing their measures against Covid-19 due to health improvements, a far-reaching prospect in Brazil that has exceeded 500.000 deaths and where a third wave of the epidemic seems to lurk.

China, for its part, has already given more than a billion doses of vaccine against Covid, the country's health ministry said today, without specifying the percentage of the population that has been fully vaccinated. That number represents more than a third of the number of doses disbursed worldwide, or 2,5 billion, according to an AFP count on Friday, based on official sources.

Three days after the end of the obligation to use the mask outdoors, the French find an almost normal life again, with the lifting of the traffic ban, which was imposed 8 months ago, thanks to the reduction of infections.

Other countries, including Germany or Spain, are moving towards a phasing out of mask use.

In Japan, more than a month before the Olympics (July 23-August 8), a state of emergency was declared today in Tokyo and eight other areas, but restrictions remain in place.

Bars and restaurants will be allowed to sell alcohol again until 19.00, but will have to close at 20.00.

Third wave

In Brazil, which became the second country in the world yesterday after the United States exceeded the limit of 500.000 deaths from Covid-19, the recent increase in daily deaths confirms the arrival of a third wave.

The latest report from the Ministry of Health puts the death toll at 500.800, of which 2.301 were recorded in the last 24 hours.

This week, the weekly average of daily deaths exceeded 2000 for the first time since May 10, in this country of 212 million.

The situation is critical in 19 of Brazil's 27 states, with more than 80% occupancy in ICU beds and 90% in eight of them.

The vaccination campaign in Brazil started late in mid-January and only 29% of the population has received at least one dose and 11,36% have been fully vaccinated.

In China, on the other hand, where the virus has been almost extinct for a year, thanks to mandatory quarantines, mass testing or mobile phone control applications, authorities continue to push residents to be vaccinated, insisting on national solidarity and their duty as citizens.

The country of 1,4 billion inhabitants recorded just 23 new cases in a period of 24 hours, all from abroad and have been quarantined.
