 How long will the outbreak last in Beijing? Is the community sealed or not? Experts explanation


In response to the concentrated epidemic situation in the wholesale market of agricultural products in the new development area, Beijing has carried out precise community prevention and control measures, requiring necessary control management for the surrounding communities and high-risk Street villages with confirmed cases.

Wang Ning, CCTV reporter:

After the outbreak of the Beijing epidemic, the strategy of community prevention and control is not the same as that of Wuhan. It seems that Wuhan is more likely to have all the sealed controls, while Beijing has some sealed controls and some can enter with codes.

Wu Hao, expert of disease control expert committee of national health and Health Commission:

This is a big difference. This time, we emphasize the principle of accurate sealing control. For example, not all the residential areas in the medium risk areas are sealed. If there are confirmed cases in the residential areas, such as two confirmed cases in the same unit of the same building, we need to seal this residential area, which is more accurate. At that time, Wuhan was in a specific period under specific conditions. At that time, it was not familiar with the whole virus, so we pressed the pause button. This time, we cant, because there are many good experiences and models to use, so we quickly took precise control, not just flood, one seal. The most important thing is to find out very early that so far we have not seen the spread of community-based diffusion, which is crucial.

Wang Ning, CCTV reporter:

What is your personal judgement novel coronavirus pneumonia in Beijing?

Wu Hao, expert of disease control expert committee of national health and Health Commission:

I personally think it will enter a stable period, which may be a stable period in terms of data platform.

Wang Ning, CCTV reporter:

Is the number of new confirmed cases maintained at a certain level every day?

Wu Hao, expert of disease control expert committee of national health and Health Commission:

Yes, so dont panic at this time. This stable period is the control period mentioned by Professor Wu Zunyou a few days ago. This control period does not mean that there is no new case, but because some nucleic acid test results we have done in the early stage are gradually coming out. But we still need to see if there is a point scattered in the next two days. He may not be in the risk area, has not been to the risk area, and has not contacted with the risk population. That is to say, he did not feel at ease. This is actually a data observed. If these people have no problems, then basically we think that all the sources of infection come from a new area.

Wang Ning, CCTV reporter:

In fact, we also saw this statement at the conference that the epidemic in Beijing may be on the rise for a period of time, because the number of people suffering from the disease will remain and last for a period of time.

Wu Hao, expert of disease control expert committee of national health and Health Commission:

Yes, its the people who are under my control.

Wang Ning, CCTV reporter:

I already know where they are and who they are.

Wu Hao, expert of disease control expert committee of national health and Health Commission:

Yes, thats the key point, so dont just look at the numbers.

Wang Ning, CCTV reporter:

How long does it last?

Wu Hao, expert of disease control expert committee of national health and Health Commission:

In terms of incubation period, I dont think it will exceed next week (i.e. this week), so it should be.

Wang Ning, CCTV reporter:

Why are you so confident?

Wu Hao, expert of disease control expert committee of national health and Health Commission:

This is the law of infectious diseases. As long as you control the source of infection and block the transmission chain, a digital cliff like decline may occur. In fact, this is also an experience in Wuhan. You can also see that after we took measures in Wuhan, there were less than 1000 people on February 19, realizing bed and others. On February 20, more than 300 cases were realized, and soon more than 100 cases were realized For example, you can see this graph.

Wu Hao, expert of disease control expert committee of national health and Health Commission:

We mobilized quickly this time for testing, with great action force. Some people may find him in time when he is still in the incubation period,

One is to prevent him from infecting others, and the other is to treat him in time.

Timely treatment means that the prognosis must be good, or that he is less likely to turn critical. Maybe the common people want to know if I can get the result immediately after the test. If you are positive, you will be informed at the first time. It is difficult to report so many negative results. First of all, I hope the public can understand that we are mainly looking for those risk personnel. If you dont get results, you are relatively safe.

Wang Ning, CCTV reporter:

A lot of people are worried about it. Do I want to go to self check and self-test too? Although I was not informed, I also want to check. Is it necessary?

Wu Hao, expert of disease control expert committee of national health and Health Commission:

If the people are willing to test it, they can also test it. At present, our nucleic acid detection ability is abundant, but after all, it is limited, so we should try our best to meet the risk population. If you havent been to a risk area, you havent contacted with relevant risk groups, you dont have any related physical symptoms, and you dont need to go on a business trip in this period, I suggest you take it easy.

Wang Ning, CCTV reporter:

Some people will say that such a huge amount of detection, is it possible to have a fish that missed the net?

Wu Hao, expert of disease control expert committee of national health and Health Commission:

It is inevitable that there will be very few false negatives in nucleic acid detection.

So we say that you are not finished after the test. You still need to wear a mask, have more ventilation at home, and do a good job in family health, including the surrounding environment, and wash your hands frequently. This is very important.

In Wu Haos view, Beijings rapid, effective and precise prevention and control of the epidemic will provide useful reference for other places and the future normalization of epidemic prevention.

Wu Hao, expert of disease control expert committee of national health and Health Commission:

Controlling doesnt mean no, we have to prevent. Thats why we have been saying that we should do regular prevention and control, rather than normal life. It must be such a process in the future to do well in prevention and control under normalization. We also see that Beijings prevention and control has been very strict all the time. You can see that there are problems in new places, which means that there may be loopholes in the process of our prevention and control. the second

If I put an end to the environment in which the virus is generated, for example, we think that the emergence of this case may be in the dark and humid corner of the new birthplace, in a closed environment, I will not let this environment exist, which is equivalent to prevention. Wang Ning, CCTV reporter: we have eliminated some markets related to the agricultural trade market, that is, put an end to it in the environment? Wu Hao, an expert from the disease control expert committee of the national health and Health Commission: Yes, we need to maintain a peaceful state of mind, that is, regular prevention and control, we may also put down the alarm, and it is possible to raise the alarm again, not necessarily in Beijing, but all over the country. The virus sequence of new cases in Tianjin is the same as that of new cases in Beijing. Two places in Beijing have been upgraded to high-risk areas. At present, there are 4 high-risk areas and 37 risk areas. A full view of 227 confirmed cases in Beijing. Summary of work and living areas.

At present, the absence of cases in some areas does not mean the absence of the virus, and there may be asymptomatic existence.

If I put an end to the environment in which the virus is generated, for example, we think that the emergence of this case may be in the dark and humid corner of the new birthplace, in a closed environment, I will not let this environment exist, which is equivalent to prevention.

Wang Ning, CCTV reporter:

We have eliminated some markets related to the agricultural trade market, that is, put an end to it in the environment?

Yes, we need to maintain a peaceful state of mind, that is, regular prevention and control, we may also put down the alarm, and it is possible to raise the alarm again, not necessarily in Beijing, but all over the country.
