The new coronavirus is a new strain of coronavirus discovered in the human body in 2019. There was an outbreak across the country in early 2020. At that time, experts said that the new crown virus was afraid of high temperatures, and gradually came under control as the temperature rose. Otherwise, under the scorching sun in August, the new crown did not contain its "minions" and continued to rush like people.
On August 17, at the launching ceremony of the National Air Purification Product Quality Supervision and Inspection Center, Academician Zhong Nanshan, the director of the expert committee, attended the event and delivered a speech. At the meeting, Zhong Nanshan responded to topics of public concern such as the recent new local cases and imported frozen food. Regarding the recent new local cases in Shanwei, Guangdong, Zhong Nanshan believes that Guangdong is very tight in prevention and control, and hopes to be controlled.
Academician Zhong Nanshan: "Up to now, as far as I know, hundreds of thousands of people have been tested in Shanwei and Shenzhen, followed up with close contacts, and cleaned and disinfected the area. It seems that no new cases have been found. There is hope (to be) controlled the local epidemic."
In response to the public concern about the positive detection of new coronavirus nucleic acid on the imported frozen fresh food packaging, Zhong Nanshan suggested that the public should pay more attention to the contact between frozen meat and fish and wash their hands frequently. "Imported food is relatively rare, so don't overstate it."
"Wear a mask and keep your distance. After the new outbreak, we have put more emphasis on hand washing. Contaminated food, especially frozen meat and fish, should be paid special attention."
Recently, sporadic cases still exist everywhere. Since most of the population is still susceptible, Academician Zhong Nanshan pointed out that the prevention and control of the epidemic cannot be let down.
"Every one of us is susceptible, and our antibody detection rate in Guangdong and Guangzhou is only a few tenths of a percent, or even a few tenths of a percent. That is to say, only zero percent. Few people have antibodies, and other people are not immune. As long as you are infected with the virus, you will get it. It turns out that we were too naive, thinking that COVID-19 is similar to SARS, and it should be better in summer (less infectious) Now it seems that summer is still like this."
The prevention and control of the epidemic is not relaxed, for the safety and health of the people across the country. Zhong Nanshan said: “We are always very vigilant about the recurrence of the epidemic anywhere. In the past six months, I have deeply felt that the philosophy of epidemic management at home and abroad is really very different. Some countries are economically first, because if The economy is not good, and some people have no food to eat. But in China, life is first. My experience of this is very profound."
