What does a “travel bubble” mean? It means travellers within a set of locations can across international boundaries with an agreed set of health-check protocols. Some of these may include standardising how Covid-19 tests are done and documented, agreed travel time frames, contact tracing, etc.
Singapore & Malaysia are planning to establish a travel bubble from 10 Aug 2020 onwards. We look forward to more travel bubbles like this to be created so that we can transition back to normalcy soon.
Meanwhile, places like Japan are issuing high alerts as they see a significant rise in covid-19 cases.
Thankfully, we have encouraging news of pharmaceutical firms entering the final phase of clinical trials for a covid-19 vaccine.
We certainly hope this trial will be successful so that we can get over this pandemic soon.
