China News Service, Guangzhou, June 30 (Cai Minjie, Lin Jie) “I announce that the’Falcon’ gas film laboratory is closed.” All six groups of air film cabins are turned off. The “Falcon” gas film laboratory, which has been fighting for a whole month, has completed its mission to help fight the epidemic with accurate detection, and ushered in the moment of suspension. At this time, Guangzhou has had no new local cases for 11 consecutive days, all of which are low-risk areas.

Zhong Nanshan said: “Guangzhou has summed up two very good experiences in the prevention and control of the epidemic, which are of great significance in the country and the world. On the one hand, it is to carry out high-speed, high-density, and high-quality nucleic acid testing. ; On the other hand is to track key populations. The’Falcon’ air film laboratory has played an important role in it, providing strong support for rapid and large-scale nucleic acid testing to ensure that our prevention and control efforts can catch up The spread of the virus turns from passive to active.”

Delta mutant strain has the characteristics of fast spreading, high viral load in the body, slow clearance, and long treatment time. This means that Guangzhou needs to quickly carry out large-scale, high-quality nucleic acid testing for different groups of people in a short period of time.

On May 30, the construction of the “Falcon” air film laboratory quickly started. The air film cabin construction and equipment commissioning were completed in just 22 hours, and it was quickly put into use. By the early morning of June 30, the last batch of testing tasks was completed. The “Falcon” gas film laboratory has been fighting for a full month, and has completed nearly 1.5 million nucleic acid tests and screened more than 12 million people.

“In the prevention and control of this epidemic, precise detection has played a very important role, especially the high-frequency and large-area screening in a short period of time, so that the infected people can get’early detection’ early. Discovered. In this round of the epidemic, more than half of the infected people were found through testing.” Zhong Nanshan said that Guangzhou’s experience in detecting and tracking the new crown virus has provided reference for other cities in China and even the global screening. If a similar epidemic occurs again, I believe we can turn our passiveness into activeness and act quickly to stop the virus.”

Zhong Nanshan said that taking a cabin does not mean taking a rest. At present, Guangzhou, and even Guangdong Province, are under heavy pressure and heavy tasks to prevent the import of overseas epidemics. It is still necessary to remain vigilant at all times. At the same time, it is necessary to conscientiously summarize experience to lay a better foundation for the next step of new technology development.

It is reported that Golden Mile Medical, as the operator of this air film laboratory, has summarized and refined the “Falcon” Air Film Laboratory Construction and Operation Manual, and established a “Health Sentinel Vanguard”. After the cabin is closed, the members of this vanguard team will return to their respective positions. Once an epidemic occurs again, once a support order is received, they can go to the epidemic scene within 12 hours to support the anti-epidemic work.

In order to better respond to the epidemic in Guangzhou, Golden Mile Medical has adopted the headquarters central laboratory, the “Falcon” air film laboratory and the mobile laboratory for joint operations in Guangzhou. As of June 26, Jinyu Medical has accumulated 35.47 million nucleic acid tests in Guangdong, accounting for 17% of the province’s total nucleic acid tests. (End)
