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

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

China licensed "conditions" to market the first domestic vaccine against the emerging corona virus, at a time when about five million people from the most vulnerable groups have been vaccinated so far.

This first license for the vaccine produced by "Sinopharma" in cooperation with the Institute of Biological Products in Beijing, whose effectiveness is more than 79% according to the group of drugs, will allow the vaccination of groups most exposed to the virus, especially the elderly and people suffering from other diseases.

"The next stage will include vaccinating the entire population," said Assistant Minister of Health Zheng Yuxin.

Indian authorities imposed a night curfew in New Delhi and a number of major cities in the country Thursday on the occasion of the New Year's Eve, as part of their efforts to curb the spread of the new strain of the emerging corona virus.

The closure will continue in the capital for two days, from 11:00 pm to 6:00 am, with no gatherings of more than five people.

On Thursday, Tokyo recorded more than a thousand cases of the new Corona virus, in the highest new toll, at a time when officials warned of the possibility of imposing a state of emergency to contain the epidemic.

"Regarding the emerging corona virus, there is no holiday marking the end of the year and the new year. This winter, we see a spread of the virus and the situation is very dangerous," Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said.

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga called an emergency ministerial meeting on the health situation.

Criticism is increasing in France for the government's vaccination campaign, which since Sunday has resulted in the injection of 200 people in exchange for the vaccination of thousands in Germany or Italy. On Thursday, the Institute of Medicine regretted the "very slow" start of the campaign, considering that the precautions taken were "wasteful".

In contrast, the number of French people who underwent tests to detect the infection increased, with more than three million tests performed during the Christmas week, compared to 2.3 million the previous week.

Countries around the world receive the new year Thursday under restrictions to limit the spread of the new Corona virus, while billions of people are eager to say goodbye to the 2020 year that the pandemic has marked.

After a difficult year that has spread throughout the world in which restrictions and measures of home quarantine and curfews have been recorded and in which at least 1.8 million people have died of the Covid-19 epidemic, most of the world's population watches New Year celebrations from their homes.

From Sydney to Rome, citizens watch shows of fireworks and crackers and live concerts on the Internet or television, if not canceled in the first place.

The epidemic has resulted in the death of more than 1.8 million people in the world out of more than 82 million injuries, according to a toll prepared by Agence France-Presse Thursday at about 11:00 GMT based on official figures.

The United States records the highest outcome of the epidemic, with 342,414 deaths out of 19.74 million infections since the start of the outbreak, followed by Brazil with 193,875 deaths out of 7.6 million cases, and India with 148,738 deaths out of 10,26 injuries.

These figures do not take into account the adjustments made by official bodies to their numbers later, as in Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom.
