2020 coronavirus pandemic in Russia

The first cases of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic were confirmed in Russia on 31 January 2020. Early prevention measures included restricting the border with China and extensive testing. Later measures, after the infection spread from Italy on 2 March, included cancelling events, closing schools, theatres and museums, shutting the border, and declaring a non-working period. By the end of March, lockdowns were imposed in the vast majority of federal subjects, including Moscow. Background On 12 January, the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed that a novel coronavirus was the cause of a respiratory illness in a cluster of people in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China, who had initially come to the attention of the WHO on 31 December 2019. This cluster was initially linked to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan City. However, some of those first cases with laboratory confirmed results had no link to the market, and the source of the epidemic is unknown.[3][4] Unlike SARS of 2003, the case fatali

2020 coronavirus pandemic in Taiwan

As of mid-March 2020, the pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has had a more moderate impact in Taiwan than in many neighboring countries, with relatively few infections overall.[1][2][3] The first case was announced on 21 January 2020. The Taiwanese government integrated data from the national healthcare system, immigration, and customs authorities to aid in the identification and response to the virus. Government efforts are coordinated through the National Health Command Center (NHCC) of the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control, established to aid in disaster management for epidemics following the 2004 SARS outbreak.[4] The Journal of the American Medical Association states that Taiwan engaged in 124 discrete action items to prevent the spread of the disease, including early screening of flights from Mainland China and the tracking of individual cases.[5][2] Taiwan's handling of the outbreak has received international praise for its effectiveness in quarantining the people and by using the "el

2020 coronavirus pandemic in Thailand

An outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), part of the 2019–2020 global pandemic, has been ongoing in Thailand since 13 January 2020, when the country made the first confirmation of a case outside China. Surveillance among incoming travellers revealed a small number of cases throughout January, almost all of whom were visitors or residents returning from China. The first reported local transmission was confirmed on 31 January. The number of cases remained low throughout February, with forty confirmed by the end of the month. Cases saw a sharp increase in mid-March, which was attributed to several transmission clusters, the largest of which occurred at a Muay Thai fight at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium on 6 March. Confirmed cases rose to over a hundred per day over the following week, and public venues and businesses were ordered to close in Bangkok and several other provinces. Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha declared a state of emergency, effective on 26 March, though a curfew has not been announced.
