Autumn is coming and the epidemic is not yet in the future

 Autumn is coming and the epidemic is not yet in the future

The novel coronavirus pneumonia will also be in the wrong place.

Thirdly, China has seen novel coronavirus pneumonia superposing influenza in the southern hemisphere, such as Brazil, Australia and New Zealand. The global epidemic is also not optimistic. The pressure of Chinas external input is still heavy.

Zhang Wenhong, director of the infectious diseases department of Huashan Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University, said in an interview program on the 6th that he thought the rebound of the epidemic in autumn would become a great challenge, but in fact, the challenge has come ahead of time. He thinks it is possible that this year will be in the state of global epidemic spread.

Zhang previously said that even countries in the northern hemisphere, which withstood the impact of the first batch of outbreaks, may face a second round of challenges in autumn and winter because viruses tend to replicate more easily in winter and indoor activities increase the risk of transmission. At present, the biggest problem is what kind of epidemic prevention strategy to meet the challenge.

Talking about the possible recurrence of the epidemic in autumn and winter, the experts interviewed summed up three levels of deployment.

The first is the individual level. Wear masks, wash hands frequently and keep social distance. Zeng Guang reminded novel coronavirus pneumonia and influenza and other respiratory infectious diseases mainly spread through droplets. Facts have proved that these practices can effectively protect themselves.

In view of the rebound in the epidemic situation, some cities in France, the Netherlands, Greece, Australia and other countries have successively enforced the mask order. World Health Organization director general Tan Desai said that a mask mobilization order will be launched in the near future to encourage people around the world to send photos of wearing masks.

The novel coronavirus pneumonia vaccine is still wildly beating gongs and drums. Zeng suggests that the elderly and chronic patients should be inoculated with the existing Streptococcus pneumoniae vaccine and influenza vaccine according to the actual situation, so as to strengthen the protection. He admitted that China novel coronavirus pneumonia vaccination rate is relatively low, and when China is fighting the new crown pneumonia epidemic stage victory, we should see the shortage and strengthen the alert.

The reporter noted that Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Shenzhen and other places have successively implemented policies to vaccinate key populations with free influenza vaccine. In June this year, Beijing announced a key work point for disease prevention and control in 2020, which has proposed early deployment and implementation of influenza vaccine procurement and vaccination services in combination with the prevention and control measures of respiratory diseases in autumn and winter.

Novel coronavirus pneumonia treatment program for the autumn and winter has been issued by Chinas State Council joint prevention and control mechanism medical treatment team, which involves standardized management of construction of fever clinics, nucleic acid detection, material reserves, personnel protection, and so on. It is required to further investigate and prevent the control loopholes, reinforce the prevention and control key points, and reinforce the prevention and control requirements. On July 31, the joint prevention and control mechanism of the State Council held a teleconference to emphasize the preparation for prevention and control in autumn and winter and resolutely prevent the outbreak from rebounding.

Wang Hesheng believes that the key is to implement the requirements of early detection, early report, early isolation and early treatment, including improving the ability and quality of nucleic acid detection as soon as possible. Zeng Guang has the same view, he said: the detection reagents are improving, the detection efficiency is improving, and it is necessary to step up the production of detection reagents to achieve large-scale application.

Experts remind people not to hurt epidemic in autumn. On the one hand novel coronavirus pneumonia has been accumulated and experience is well established. It is believed that it can cope well. On the other hand, people never stop exploring new anti viral drugs and vaccines, just as Tan Desai said: sticking to science and solidarity can overcome the new crowns.
