Asian nations struggle to contain coronavirus

With a dwindling number of COVID-19 cases, China appears to have passed the worst.

    China is to block foreigners from entering the country starting from Saturday.

    That is because nearly all of its new COVID-19 cases are people who have come from abroad.

    China has started easing restrictions in the region where the pandemic started, but other Asian nations are struggling to contain the spread.
