China is trying to prevent a second wave of coronavirus, taking measures that may prove useful in other countries. Among them — a ban on the entry of foreigners, control over the movement of citizens through mobile applications, mass testing COVID-19.

China first faced with novel coronavirus infection, the first managed to cope with the spread of the disease and today is the first trying to prevent the tide of the epidemic. To take decisive action Beijing are pushing the findings of the Chinese scientists that a new virus cannot be fully eradicated and, most likely, he will become a seasonal disease, like the flu.

that is Why the efforts of the Chinese authorities focused on how to restore economic activity, but to keep the spread of infection to an acceptable level and to prevent catastrophic surge in the number of new cases. About the measures taken to this end, China, told Bloomberg.

Almost all foreigners are forbidden to enter China, and citizens returning due abroad, have to spend at least two weeks in quarantine. In Beijing compulsory isolation mode lasts for seven days longer. For compliance with this regime closely: neighbors encouraged to report if person in quarantine, out of the house.

In other regions of China introduced more stringent restrictions. In Heilongjiang province, bordering with Russia, the quarantine of individuals crossing the border, is 35 days.

China seeks to test for the coronavirus everyone who comes back to work. In the provinces of Hubei and Guangzhou of the company asking for the return of workers to be tested for viruses. The mass testing of workers is conducted in the province of Wuhan.

In Shanghai, the centres for voluntary testing deployed throughout the city. “Thousands of specialists from the center for disease control and doctors prey on infected patients isolated and their close contacts. This is important for rapid response, prevention and control,” said Bloomberg Director of the Department of infectious diseases hospital of Shanghai Zhang Wenjun.

In the fight against the spread of the virus China joined efforts of the state system of control Internet giants. Alibaba and Tencent have developed apps that determine the risk of each user and depending on that assign QR code different colors. For this purpose, the passport data of the person, address of his place of residence, information about his travels and health.

QR codes you need to show to get into hotels, restaurants, shops, subways and residential complexes. They allow you to control the movement of the human��and in public areas and in case of infection to quickly identify where he was and who was in contact with.

China removes restrictions imposed in connection with the pandemic coronavirus, step by step. In many cities, for example, are still closed, cinemas, theatres or bars. Wearing protective masks in the workplace and in public transport has become mandatory. School desks must be kept apart a distance.

the Financial center of China, Shanghai does not impose equally stringent control measures as other cities. The entrance to the city from other provinces is not restricted, there is no requirement to undergo compulsory testing or strict quarantine measures. Bloomberg explains that the city must remain open for investment and talent. This approach may be of interest to other global financial centres such as new York and Tokyo, the development of which depends on the internal trips of citizens.

From the beginning of April in Heilongjiang province registered more than 370 infected. Basically it is citizens of China, who crossed a land border with Russia. However, the removal of restrictions has not yet led to a major re outbreaks of coronavirus. Does this mean that taken by China’s measures work? “All this means that with the resumption of economic and social life in China there are new unknown, which can lead to another outbreak,” said Bloomberg Professor of the University of Hong Kong Nicholas Thomas.
