At a press conference on the prevention and control of pneumonia caused by new coronavirus in Beijing on the afternoon of February 3, He Xiong, deputy director of Beijing CDC, introduced the clustering epidemic in Fuxing Hospital. The clustering epidemic refers to two or more cases found in a small area (such as a family, a construction site, a unit, etc.) within 14 days, and there are close contacts The possibility of human to human transmission or infection due to joint exposure. Clustering activities are the main factors leading to the clustering epidemic, and the prevention and control of clustering epidemic is the key and difficult point of the current epidemic prevention and control in Beijing.
At present, a total of 41 cases of clustering are reported in the city, involving 124 cases, accounting for more than 50% of the confirmed cases. The main cause of the clustering disease is that the family members or colleagues have contact history in Hubei and other places, and contact with them before the case is confirmed, or as close contacts of the confirmed cases. For example, when a patient went to Hubei on a business trip, he didnt pay enough attention when he returned home. After the diagnosis of the patient, the father who had a close contact history was also confirmed. Therefore, the disease control Department reminded the public friends that the close contacts should obey the arrangement of community medical staff according to law and implement the isolation medical observation measures.
In order to thoroughly implement the plan of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council for the prevention and control of pneumonia caused by new coronavirus infection, practically strengthen the construction of prevention and control capacity, solve the production and operation difficulties of enterprises, promote the smooth and orderly operation of the city, and better serve the peoples life, the Beijing municipal government has issued 19 important measures to support the fight against the new coronavirus infection.
