Asia continues to see additional measures taken to contain Covid-19 including temporarily closing borders in order to keep out foreign cases. Countries are implementing differing plans to stop local spread from social distancing recommendations to localized or nationalized lockdowns. A newer tactic emerging is the lockdown of specific apartment blocks which has occurred in Vietnam and Malaysia. It may not have the greatest impact under current conditions, however it may see higher usage in the future when the spread is more contained.
Some recent changes to highlight:
MYANMAR has implemented a ban on all international passenger flights
VIETNAM is implementing a stay at home requirement starting midnight April 1 which is set to last for 15 days
INDONESIA, Jakarta has extended its state of emergency through April 19
INDIA, the ban on international flights has been extended through April 14
