Sydney, Australia health officials extended the city's lockdown Wednesday by another month as Covid cases increase.

Australia's biggest city has been under stay-at-home orders since late June because of an outbreak of the Delta variant.

The virus has infected more than 2,500 in Sydney's worst outbreak this year, BBC said.

In Japan, governors of three prefectures near Olympic host Tokyo will ask the government to declare states of emergency for their regions after virus cases rose to a record.

Tokyo recorded 2,847 new infections Tuesday, the highest since the pandemic broke, according to Rappler.

Thailand's pandemic task force also reported 133 new fatalities, taking total deaths to 4,398, Channel News Asia said.

In South Korea, the government reported Wednesday 1,892 new infections for Tuesday, its highest-ever daily increase.

South Korea is dealing with a fourth wave fanned by the Delta variant, Reuters said.

Over in China, the country's Sinopharm vaccine could soon be made available in Singapore, with several private health care groups already taking measures to secure doses of the vaccine.

In Bhutan, officials have fully immunized 90% of its eligible adult population in just a week, after receiving vaccines via foreign donations, according to Al Jazeera.

Bhutan, with a population of 800,000, started administering second doses July 20 in a campaign hailed by UNICEF as "arguably the fastest vaccination campaign to be executed during a pandemic."

In Singapore, the country has already started to remodel its health care protocols as officials learn to live with an endemic Covid-19, Health Minister Ong Ye Kung said.

"If Covid-19 is indeed endemic, having 200 or more cases a day may not be unusual at all," Kung said.

In Indonesia, virus deaths in the country passed 2,000 for the first time Tuesday, with officials signaling they may add a booster dose of Sinovac vaccine, because of worries about protection gaps.

Sinovac is Indonesia's main vaccine, but concerns about protection have been increasing following reports that hundreds of immunized front-line workers have died since June.
