General Administration of Customs: the case of virus not spreading to human beings through food consumption is not recommended to restrict international trade
Song yueqian, deputy director of the health and Quarantine Department of the General Administration of customs, said at a press conference of the joint prevention and control mechanism of the State Council on the 19th that the World Health Organization believed that, based on the previous experience of investigating the diseases caused by the coronavirus, no cases of food consumption were transmitted to human beings. The animal and novel coronavirus pneumonia in the food trade organization is considered to be at a low risk. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and the world organization for animal health do not recommend that countries should take restrictive measures against international trade, including food, due to the outbreak of new crown pneumonia.
However, for the sake of prudence, since February 2020, the General Administration of Customs has deployed some customs to carry out new coronavirus nucleic acid sampling inspection on some imported goods, articles and relevant environment without affecting the normal import trade. The results are all negative. Song yueqian said.
Will the epidemic happen again in the market? Official: strengthen normal prevention and control and personal protection
The novel coronavirus pneumonia virus was discovered in Wuhan before in the seafood market. Recently, the epidemic in Beijing has also started from the market. How can we avoid the recurrence of the market epidemic?
Feng Luzhao said that most of the fresh food markets have the common characteristics of complex personnel structure, wide logistics coverage, large passenger flow and humid environment. Once the environment is polluted or there is an epidemic, it may cause great difficulties in tracking, tracing the source of the contaminated products and managing the exposed personnel.
Since the first case was found on June 11, Beijing has launched a secondary response. Through strengthening community management and control of personnel entering and leaving Beijing, nucleic acid testing has been carried out in key industries, key fields, key regions and key regions in a way that should be tested as much as possible to find the infected population and strive to control the epidemic early. Feng Luzhao pointed out that after the outbreak, the public should strengthen personal protection measures to minimize the risk of infection.
Wang Bin, an inspector of the disease control bureau of the national health and Health Commission of China, stressed that all regions should carry out comprehensive and thorough environmental sanitation cleaning and disinfection focusing on the agricultural market, including warehouses for storage, warehouses for frozen food, and surfaces of objects.
When will closed places such as movie theaters be restored? Official: low risk areas can be opened under the premise of prevention and control
Shi Xiaoming, director of the environment department of the China Center for Disease Control and prevention, said in early May the State Council had issued a document proposing that closed places such as cinemas and game halls should be opened in low-risk areas. Shi Xiaoming pointed out that there are several protective measures to be paid attention to: do a good job in material preparation, including masks, hand sanitizers, etc.; staff should do a good job in personnel health monitoring; ventilate as much as possible; do a good job in cleaning and disinfection; use appointment system as much as possible.
At the same time, the protection guide emphasizes that the risk level should be adjusted effectively. Once the risk level is adjusted from low-risk area to medium and high-risk area, the epidemic prevention and control regulations should be strictly implemented. For example, once the risk has been adjusted, closed entertainment places and leisure places are recommended to suspend business, said Wang Bin. Living service places should shorten business hours, limit the number of people and stay time, and reduce personnel aggregation.
No more restrictions should be set for people who leave Beijing due to negative nucleic acid test
Wang Bin said that on June 16, Beijing adjusted the emergency response from level 3 to level 2, and stipulated that the middle and high-risk Street (township) personnel and the relevant personnel of the new destination market are prohibited from leaving Beijing. Other personnel adhere to the principle of not leaving Beijing unnecessarily People who need to leave Beijing need to have nucleic acid tests.
To this end, Beijing has taken some measures to strengthen the health management services for people leaving Beijing. Wang Bin said that from May 30 to June 16, relevant personnel from high-risk streets (townships) and new markets in Beijing have strengthened tracking management, so as to achieve nucleic acid testing, which should be done as much as possible. For those with positive nucleic acid testing, isolation should be carried out. For those with confirmed cases, suspected cases, asymptomatic infections and close contacts, if the nucleic acid testing is negative, centralized separation should be carried out for 14 days Away from medical observation.
Wang Bin stressed that after June 16, those who hold the negative nucleic acid test certificate or can show the health code including the negative nucleic acid test certificate within 7 days before leaving Beijing can move freely and orderly under the premise of normal temperature measurement and good personal protection after arriving at the destination, and no restrictive measures should be set for them.
