‘Zero-covid’ strategy in China
China has pursued a “zero-covid” strategy as Beijing prepares to welcome thousands of foreigners to the February Winter Olympics. But officials have faced a resurgence of lawsuits in recent weeks. 209 infections were reported on Tuesday (the highest number in a single day since March last year) when the virus spread from the city of Wuhan alone to the rest of the world.
Corona has been on the rise since December
According to the Global Times, 150 out of 162 domestic cases have imposed citywide lockdowns since December 23 after cases were reported in Xi’an, the capital of Shaanxi province. “From December 9 to Monday, the total number of confirmed cases in Xi’an was 635,” Zhang Bo, deputy director of the Xi’an Health Commission, told a news conference on Monday.
Hardness has increased in lockdown
Xian, a city of 13 million people, launched a new round of nucleic acid tests on Monday and tightened its lockdown by forcing all its residents to stay home to ensure the accuracy of the test report, according to Monday’s press conference. .
Intensive control to stop the virus
Zhang Boli, an educator at the Chinese Academy of Engineering, was quoted by Xinhua News Agency as saying, “For Xi’an, intensive control and screening arrangements are needed to detect the virus as soon as possible.” My guess is that the infection will decrease by mid-January and the outbreak will be completely controlled by the end of January. It can be done. ‘ “Early detection, quarantine and large-scale testing are needed to prevent the disease and it will reduce the chances of infection,” said Hay Wenquan, a senior official at the Xi’an Municipal Government.
