Covid-19 has not yet left the world, in fact, is gaining strength in the form of new variants. The entire situation has forced the world to once again imply the lockdown in several countries. Speaking of the travel bans, Asia has been pretty cautious to open its borders throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, with the spike in more cases, the differences between Asia and other continents are increasing. According to the infographic, since June 1 nearly 70 percent of Asian countries had restricted people to travel from or to their nation. This accounts for a 9 percent increase in the closure of the borders since September 2020.
Around 31 percent of countries in the Middle East remain close which is half the number since September 2020. As for Europe, America and Africa, the figures are fortunately even lesser i.e., between 13 to 20 percent.
