to Meet the new wave of coronavirus in the fall and winter ready in these Chinese cities like Wuhan and Beijing. While in China, the epidemic is generally brought under control, the risks of its resumption are still evaluated as very high.
Chinese experts point to such risks as unknown cause infections, regional outbreaks caused by imported cases, and the double attack of the coronavirus and influenza.
according to the publication Global Times, some experts believe that the second wave is unlikely because the virus has no obvious thermal preferences, but nevertheless, the country still needs to prepare for new outbreaks.
a Pandemic will last until winter, and by the time the situation may become even worse, warns chief epidemiologist At Tsungu from the Chinese center for control and prevention of diseases.
after three months since April 8, in Wuhan (Hubei province) in Central China have been cancelled city-wide lock, monitor COVID-19 continues. More than 80,000 environmental samples, taken last month, showed negative results in tests for COVID-19.
Power Wuhan from June 13 began to collect environmental samples in supermarkets, at farmers markets and in public toilets.
an Expert on respiratory diseases in the First hospital of Beijing University Wang Guanfu says comments Global Times that the majority of China’s population has no immunity against COVID-19, and the flu outbreak in autumn and winter can make it difficult to combat coronavirus infection in the country.
According to Wang, the Chinese city should strengthen its capacity to monitor epidemics, to establish the difference between the flu and COVID-19 and produce our kits for the detection of coronavirus infection.
Deputy head of the school of public health, Peking University Wang Peyia emphasizes the importance of the strategy of the “Four early” (early detection, early reporting, early isolation / quarantine and treatment): “If the symptoms appear, go to the clinic and take a test nucleic acid as soon as possible to avoid further contamination”.
to cope with the possible return of the epidemic, Wuhan health Commission recently held a special meeting dedicated to the implementation of medical care.
In the framework of emergency response, the government of Wuhan urged all health institutions from September this year to prepare clinics and quarantine departments to create a 30-day supply epidemic materials and train staff.
the Government of Beijing said on 10 July that discusses how to prepare for a new wave COVID-19 at the end of this year. Official representatives of the Chinese capital declared that the best way before��to rotate the epidemic is to observe proper procedures for personal protection, wear masks, wash their hands often and maintain social distance.
Epidemiologist At Tsungu believes that China is unlikely to be repeated dire situation faced in Wuhan earlier this year. But the expert recalled that the country still faces two kinds of pressure. One of them he called occurring for an unknown reason the outbreak of infection, for example, flash on the seafood market in Wuhan in the Beijing market Sinhale. The other is a regional distribution, caused by imported cases – as happened, for example, in Solane and Suifenhe in northeast China.
researcher, Institute for research in public safety of Tsinghua University, Liang Manconi Global Times says that these two factors will still pose a danger to the country, which we need to prepare for a long-term fight against the virus.
But “because China has gained vast experience in Wuhan and Beijing, the country is able to eliminate any signs of the epidemic,” says Liang.
in the coming months If I can find out the origin of the virus and develop a vaccine, it will also help to prevent an epidemic.
says van Peyia from the School of public health, Peking University, ports and customs authorities should conduct prompt, thorough testing and take quarantine measures, since the international routes of China gradually resume their activities, while the global pandemic continues to spread.
