SYDNEY, KOMPAS.com – Asian countries are actively dealing with the second wave of coronavirus infections and governments are working to contain the Covid-19 virus.

Recently, Australia recorded a record daily rise in Covid-19 cases while Vietnam has taken the drastic step of locking down the city of Danang.

Mainland China is currently battling the most aggressive re-emergence of the Covid-19 virus in months including 57 new local Covid-19 cases on Sunday.

The figure is the highest level since early March and has been linked to fresh infections in the far western region of Xinjiang.

The northeastern province of Liaoning reported a fifth straight day of active Covid-19 virus transmission.

Jilin Province followed suit with two new cases that are also its first cases since late May.

Local media reported that on Monday, Hong Kong is expected to tighten restrictions including banning dining at restaurants as well as making wearing face masks mandatory outdoors.

The measures, which are expected to take effect from Wednesday, would be the first time the city has completely banned dining in restaurants.

Australian authorities warned a six-week lockdown in parts of the southeastern Victoria state may last longer after the country registered its highest daily increase in infections.

Most of Australia is effectively virus-free but flare-ups in the two most populous southeastern states have authorities scrambling to prevent a wider national outbreak.
