The global novel pneumonia epidemic is severe, and many places are still deeply mired in the epidemic.

One year after the fight against the epidemic, Hong Kong today (23rd) had more than 10,000 cases. The authorities "closed the area" for the first time and partially blocked the designated area of ​​the "Temple Street Epidemic Area" in Jordan. Residents must have a negative virus test certificate before they can leave.

"Hong Kong 01" compares the intensity and patterns of epidemic prevention measures taken around the world in the past year and finds that the strictness of Hong Kong's prevention and control measures is about medium, but the overall tightening is getting tighter.

Singapore raised the strictness of epidemic prevention measures to the highest level earlier than Hong Kong in April last year, and has since continued to relax.

In addition to the fact that the number of confirmed diagnoses in Taiwan and Macau is much lower than that of Hong Kong, the level of strictness has been maintained at a relatively low level. The UK and the United States currently have stricter epidemic prevention measures.

According to the "Stringency Index" (Stringency Index, from 0 to 100, the higher the value, the stricter the measures) developed by the University of Oxford to measure the stringency of epidemic prevention measures in various places, Hong Kong has experienced four waves of epidemics, and epidemic prevention measures have been stepped up.

Although the measures will be relaxed after each wave of the epidemic is over, it has not yet returned to the level of last January.

Hong Kong’s epidemic prevention measures have been tightened at the beginning and then introduced restrictions on gatherings and inspection orders. After the fourth wave of the epidemic, the prevention and control efforts have reached an unprecedented level. The authorities have "closed the area" for the first time and introduced a list of mandatory inspection buildings. For the first time, the two-person limited gathering order has been maintained for a long time.

Oxford University’s "Government Stringency Index" (COVID-19: Government Stringency Index) is collected and compiled by the Oxford University Epidemic Government Policy Tracking System. It collects information on measures such as closure of public places, suspension of classes, suspension of transportation, entry restrictions, testing, vaccines, etc. , Made by analysis.

Singapore tightened to the highest level earlier than Hong Kong

Singapore, which is often compared with Hong Kong, raised its anti-epidemic measures to the highest level earlier than Hong Kong in April last year. The anti-epidemic index was as high as 76 and the local index was 66.7 in the same period.

At that time, there were more than 1,000 confirmed diagnoses in a single day in Singapore, and then the number dropped. The local government gradually relaxed measures in mid-May and has maintained it until now.

Singapore has recorded more than 59,000 cases so far, and the number of confirmed cases in a single day has remained at 30 to 40, and the number of deaths is much lower than in Hong Kong.

In addition to the number of confirmed cases in Taiwan and Macau, which are close to Hong Kong, the number of confirmed cases is much lower than that of Hong Kong. The prevention and control index has also been maintained at a low level of about 30-40.

Among them, Macau has no new cases for most of the past six months, and imported cases only appeared a few days ago.

Japan has tightened significantly before the announcement of the postponement of East Olympics

As for Japan, where the number of confirmed diagnoses has reached a new high recently, the overall prevention and control index is lower than that of Hong Kong, and has changed more.

At the end of March last year, the Japanese government announced the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics. Prior to this, the epidemic prevention efforts were gradually increased. By the end of last year, the number of local confirmed cases exceeded 5,000 in a single day, and epidemic prevention measures were further tightened.

The situation in South Korea is similar to that in Singapore. In April last year, the prevention and control index was as high as 76 and then fell back, but it increased again after the winter.

British and American epidemics are severe and British city closure measures are stricter

As for the two countries with more severe epidemics in the United Kingdom and the United States, the United Kingdom’s prevention and control efforts have been greater. Between March and May last year and the beginning of this year, the index was both as high as 80.

In December last year, the United Kingdom discovered a more contagious variant of the virus strain, raised the level of epidemic prevention to the highest level, and initiated a lockdown. Other countries also imposed entry controls on the United Kingdom.

The number of confirmed cases in the UK has recently dropped, but it still maintains a daily level of around 40,000.

The United States is the country with the largest number of confirmed cases in the world. The local prevention and control index has risen to a level of more than 70 since the end of March last year and has remained at a high level ever since.
