Asian countries stepped up their fight against the coronavirus on Thursday to suppress a contagion they had previously tamed, as warnings grew in Europe over a new fast-spreading variant.
Japan declared a state of emergency in Tokyo as the capital region clocked a 24-hour record of almost 2,500 infections, while China imposed emergency measures to tackle an outbreak in the northern city of Shijiazhuang.
The restrictions come as a slew of new lockdowns and other restrictions came into force around the world, with Canada and Lebanon ordering night-time curfews, and countries from South Africa to Mexico registering record daily deaths in their battle against the virus.
