Among them, 65 cases are mild, 150 cases are ordinary, no Heavy and critical. At present, all patients are in stable condition. On the 5th, 1 case changed from heavy-duty to normal type, and 2 cases from light-duty to normal type.

In terms of risk level delineation, according to the national and provincial requirements for precise prevention and control of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, after evaluation by the epidemic prevention and control expert group, starting from August 6, 2021, some areas of Nanjing The risk level of the epidemic has been adjusted: the Workers’ New Village, Zhongyangmen Street, Gulou District, has been adjusted from a medium-risk area to a low-risk area. The risk level of other regions remains unchanged.

Yang Dasuo said that in order to further standardize the health management of local patients with new coronary pneumonia after being cured and discharged from hospital in Nanjing, a special document has been issued recently to clarify the patient’s discharge and transfer process and subsequent health management requirements. “In general, it is 14 days in a designated hospital for rehabilitation and isolation, 14 days in home health monitoring, and a follow-up visit at the end of each stage.”

The specific process is: After the patient is cured, the patient will be treated in Nanjing. The center sends an ambulance from the public health medical center to the discharge rehabilitation point (currently the Lishui District Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital); the rehabilitation point does the isolation observation, health monitoring, rehabilitation and basic medical treatment of discharged patients, and is responsible for completing the post-discharge 2 Zhou’s first follow-up visit. If the patient’s recovery time exceeds 2 weeks, the first follow-up visit will be postponed to the end of the patient’s recovery. When the patient’s recovery and isolation is over, the municipal medical treatment team informs the patient’s place of residence to pick up the patient. After the patient returned home, the home health monitoring was conducted for 14 days under the guidance of the township (street) and village (resident) committees. The family doctor of the community health service center in the place of residence is responsible for the guidance. At the end of home health monitoring, the district health and health commission of the patient’s district coordinated the nearest medical institution with a fever clinic to complete the second follow-up visit after the patient was discharged from the hospital. After that, the patient can return to normal life, but normalized personal protection must also be done. (End)
