The epidemic has never gone far! Over 60 local cases were confirmed in Yunnan in a week
Before the Ching Ming holiday, a local epidemic occurred again in China.
On March 29, during a routine nucleic acid test of key populations in Ruili, Yunnan, one person was found to be positive for nucleic acid, and investigation and disposal were immediately carried out.
According to the Yunnan Provincial Health Commission, from April 3, for three consecutive days, the number of new confirmed cases in Yunnan Province has exceeded 10 daily. From March 30 to April 6, in just over a week, the total number of local confirmed cases in this round of the epidemic has reached 65.
From 19:00 on April 5th, Yunnan Ruili sister told Guomen Community and other three places to be adjusted to high-risk areas. This is only more than 40 days after the removal of high-risk areas across the country on February 18.
Nucleic acid testing for all employees, universal vaccination… After the outbreak, Ruili City has urgently adopted a series of prevention and control measures to curb the spread of the epidemic.
According to an official report, from 8 o’clock on the 6th, the second round of nucleic acid testing for all employees in the urban area of Ruili has begun; the entire population of 300,000 people in the urban area will be vaccinated on the 2nd and planned for 5 days. carry out.
But it is worth being vigilant that close contacts of the confirmed case have appeared outside Yunnan Province.
On the 6th, the Qiqihar City Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Heilongjiang issued a risk alert: As of April 5, Qiqihar City had identified 708 returnees from Yunnan Province, including 29 returnees from Dehong Prefecture (Ruili 16 People), 12 people returned from Lincang City (no Gengma County personnel). At the same time, two people who were closely connected to a confirmed case in Yunnan have been identified, and epidemic prevention and control measures have been implemented.

Keep the gate of the country! The pressure on foreign defense imports has not decreased
Recalling that the epidemics that have occurred in China this year are all related to foreign imports, this reminds us again: the pressure on foreign defense imports is still huge!
However, in the eyes of experts, compared with previous epidemics in Shijiazhuang and other places, this epidemic is not particularly serious.
Liu Zhengyin, a professor of the Department of Infectious Diseases at Peking Union Medical College Hospital, analyzed the media. Although Ruili upgraded three areas to high-risk areas this time, the overall situation was different from the previous Shijiazhuang epidemic.
According to expert analysis, one is because the current epidemic area is relatively concentrated, and the other is because the spread of the Ruili epidemic is clear and imported to Myanmar. Ruili will conduct traffic control as soon as possible, and promptly investigate and isolate close contacts. , Take measures earlier.
However, this does not mean that you can be paralyzed.
Data from the World Health Organization shows that at present, the total number of confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia worldwide has exceeded 130 million.
Although many countries have begun to vaccinate the new crown vaccine on a large scale, the spread of the epidemic in some areas has not been contained.
For example, data released by the Indian Ministry of Health on the 5th local time showed that there were more than 100,000 newly diagnosed cases of new coronary pneumonia in the country in the past 24 hours. India has become the second country with more than 100,000 new cases in a single day after the United States.
India is also the country with the largest number of COVID-19 infections in the past week. Some epidemiologists said that the more contagious mutant virus may also play a role in this second wave of epidemics.
On the other hand, the restoration of large-scale personnel movement in China has also brought difficulties to the prevention and control of the epidemic.
According to official data, during the Ching Ming holiday, 102 million domestic tourists traveled nationwide, a year-on-year increase of 144.6% on a comparable basis, and it recovered to 94.5% of the same period before the epidemic. Some scenic spots reappeared in crowds. The sight.
Whether it is possible to prevent the epidemic from rebounding while resuming normal production and life is a major challenge facing Chinese society.

The proportion of vaccination in China is only about 9%. There is still a gap in the establishment of an immune barrier
In the face of the risk of virus importing abroad, in addition to weaving a dense prevention and control network In addition, timely inoculation of the new crown vaccine and establishment of an immune barrier as soon as possible are the top priorities of China’s epidemic prevention and control work.
“We are racing against time, we are racing against the epidemic, we must firmly suppress everything, protect the health of the people in the city, and guard the safety barrier of the southwest of the motherland.”
< p>Gong Yunzun, member of the Standing Committee of the Dehong Prefecture Party Committee of Yunnan Province and Secretary of the Ruili Municipal Party Committee, emphasized in an interview with the media that vaccination is a must for every resident (eligible for vaccination). It is related to the normal operation of the city and is related to The health of every resident.
At present, Ruili has been intensively carrying out universal vaccination. In Yunnan province, as of April 5, the province has purchased 3.903 million vaccines in place, and 3.635 million doses have been vaccinated, and 3.232 million have been vaccinated.
From a national perspective, data from the National Health Commission shows that as of April 5, 2021, more than 140 million doses of new coronavirus vaccines have been reported in various places.
However, there is still a big gap between this data and the “universal” 70%-80% vaccination rate.
According to media reports, on the 6th, Zhong Nanshan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, gave a lecture on “New Crown Prevention and Control Strategies and Vaccine Development” at the 100th anniversary of Xiamen University. He called for resolute vaccination.
Zhong Nanshan said that the current vaccination rate in China is only over 9%, which is too low. There are two reasons why it is so low. One reason is that many people feel that it is unnecessary to vaccinate; the other reason is that they are afraid of side effects. But in fact, if all countries are vaccinated and open again in the future, the vast majority of people in China will be non-immune. At this time, the (virus) can easily spread in, and the domestic epidemic will break out again.
“So, we should be very determined in this aspect of vaccination.” Zhong Nanshan said.
It is understood that at present, China has 5 manufacturers of new coronavirus vaccines approved for conditional marketing or emergency use.
In order to build an immune barrier, vaccine manufacturers have adopted various measures to increase production capacity and ensure the supply of vaccines. Experts said that with the further release of vaccine production capacity, the number of vaccinations per day could reach 10 million in the future.
In the future, whether the epidemic can be prevented from rebounding in the country will not only test the efficiency of the government’s response measures and the mobilization ability of the society, but also the responsibility of every ordinary citizen. (End)
