How to find asymptomatic


The novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic situation was released on the afternoon of April 1st, and the website of the National Health Protection Committee and the Hubei Health Protection Committee announced the latest situation as of March 31st. The novel coronavirus pneumonia is the first official notification of asymptomatic infections in the daily epidemic notification since the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia. On March 31, 130 new asymptomatic infections were reported in 31 provinces (autonomous regions, municipalities directly under the central government) and Xinjiang production and Construction Corps. On that day, 2 cases were confirmed and 302 cases were released from isolation. 1367 cases of asymptomatic infection were observed in medicine, 174 cases less than the previous day. On the same day, 47 cases of asymptomatic infection were newly increased in Hubei Province, 1 case was confirmed on the same day (imported from abroad), 289 cases were removed from isolation, and 982 cases of asymptomatic infection were still under medical observation. The number of asymptomatic patients in medical observation was 71.8% in Hubei Province. How is asymptomatic infection detected? Is it contagious? Is there more asymptomatic infection in China? What are the requirements for prevention and control? Reporters from China Economic Weekly sorted out the issues most concerned by the people one by one.
How is asymptomatic infection detected?
Asymptomatic infection of new coronavirus refers to those who have no relevant clinical symptoms, such as fever, cough, pharyngeal pain and other symptoms and signs that can be self perceived or clinically recognized, but whose respiratory tract and other specimens are positive in etiology test of new coronavirus.
At present, asymptomatic infection is mainly found through the following ways:
First, the novel coronavirus pneumonia cases were closely contacted with the active medical examination during medical observation.
Based on the novel coronavirus pneumonia incubation period of about 14 days, there were cases of human transmission, and medical observation was conducted by close contacts in various organizations. As of 24:00 on March 31, 707913 close contacts have been traced in China, and 20314 close contacts are still under medical observation.
The second is the active detection in the cluster epidemic investigation.
For example, novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic occurred in Jintan District of Changzhou City, Jiangsu province in February. According to the investigation of the expert group, asymptomatic infection is the main factor in the epidemic.
Three, novel coronavirus pneumonia cases are tracked in the process of tracing the infection source.
In the novel coronavirus pneumonia case, the asymptomatic infection may be detected when the exposure population is actively detected.
Novel coronavirus pneumonia cases in four areas continue to spread in the area of travel history and residential history personnel active detection.
For example, since zero o’clock on March 25, all the entry personnel from Beijing port, regardless of destination, have been isolated and observed on the spot, and all have been tested for nucleic acid. Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chongqing and other cities have taken similar measures. According to incomplete statistics, asymptomatic infections have appeared in recent years. From the official information of asymptomatic infected people, we can further understand the channels through which asymptomatic infected people are found.
In the early morning of March 12, Hangzhou CDC reported an asymptomatic infected man, 49 years old, engaged in international exchange services. When the personnel went to the hospital for routine physical examination, the doctor learned that he had contact with personnel from overseas high-risk countries in the past 14 days, so he collected samples for testing, and the test results were positive.
On March 16, a asymptomatic imported patient was found in Guiyang. This person, male, 20-year-old student, is an overseas returnee to Guiyang. He transferred from London, UK to Chengdu via Hong Kong and then took the high-speed rail to Guiyang.
On March 17, the health and Health Commission of Mianyang City, Sichuan Province announced that Luo, who returned from Spain on March 13, was asymptomatic and was currently receiving medical isolation observation in a designated hospital.
In March 27th, novel coronavirus pneumonia positive patients were diagnosed as asymptomatic infection by 1 patients with thyroid diseases who were admitted to a hospital in Jingmen, Hubei province (South District) and tested by nucleic acid test on 28 March.
In March 29th, 1 novel coronavirus pneumonia cases were imported into Qingdao. Patient Li, female, 24 years old, Chinese, from Qingdao, studying in the UK. Li, who arrived at Qingdao Liuting Airport from London on March 21, was transferred to the centralized isolation point of the West Coast new area for medical observation by “point-to-point”. On March 22, nucleic acid test was positive, and on March 23, nucleic acid retest was positive, but there was no clinical symptom. On March 29, Li had fever and lung changes. Combined with the clinical manifestations and laboratory examination results, the expert group confirmed the common case and transferred it to the designated hospital for isolation treatment.
In March 31st, 1 novel coronavirus pneumonia confirmed cases in Hubei were imported from Wuhan (from asymptomatic to confirmed cases). Zhou XX, male, 16 years old, registered in Caidian District, Wuhan City, studying in the UK. Starting from the UK on March 21, transfer to Beijing Capital Airport via Dubai airport on March 22. After the temperature test and relevant procedures, the Hubei reception party arranged a single room accommodation. On March 23, it arranged to take the high-speed rail to Wuhan station on the night of Beijing west station, and arranged to separate observation at the isolation point. On March 28, the nucleic acid test results of the patients were positive, and the patients with asymptomatic infection were reported.
On March 31, a new case of asymptomatic infection was imported into Yunnan Province (Chinese, Saudi Arabia). The patient, a 16-year-old student, took a flight from Saudi Arabia on March 12 and arrived in Kunming on March 14. The nucleic acid samples from the airport were negative. Send to the centralized medical observation point for centralized observation. On the 19th, the nucleic acid samples were negative, and the body temperature was normal during isolation. On the 31st, re sampling nucleic acid test was positive

Suspension of entry of foreigners


Since novel coronavirus pneumonia spread rapidly across the globe, China has decided to suspend foreigners from holding valid visas and residence permits for entry to China since March 28, 2020 at 0. Suspension of entry of foreigners with APEC Business travel cards. Such policies as the suspension of port visa, 24 / 72 / 144 hour transit visa exemption, Hainan visa exemption, Shanghai cruise visa exemption, 144 hour visa exemption for group entry of foreigners from Hong Kong and Macao to Guangdong, and visa exemption for ASEAN tourist group to Guangxi, etc. Entry with diplomatic, official, courtesy and C visa will not be affected. Foreigners who come to China to engage in necessary economic, technological and other activities, as well as for urgent humanitarian needs, may apply for visas from Chinese embassies and consulates abroad. The entry of foreigners with visas issued after the announcement shall not be affected.
This is a temporary measure that China has to take in response to the current epidemic situation and with reference to the practice of many countries.

1.5 million Iranians have fever


On the evening of March 19, in CCTV news 1 + 1, Bai Yansong connected with Ma Xuejun, researcher of China CDC. 20 days ago, a team of volunteer experts from the Red Cross Society of China, including Ma Xuejun, went to Iran to teach China’s experience in epidemic prevention and control. Ma Xuejun said that insufficient medical and protective materials, medical staff and beds are the biggest challenges facing Iran’s epidemic prevention and control.
According to Ma Xuejun, Iran’s network registration and reporting system shows that the epidemic situation in Iran is in a rapid growth period, and 22.5 million people have been screened nationwide, including 1.5 million people with fever symptoms at least.
When connecting, he said that from a large point of view, Iran’s prevention and control measures are gradually strengthening, such as comprehensive mobilization plan, home quarantine policy, travel restrictions, as well as improving detection capacity and building a shelter hospital. From a small point of view, Iranian officials are wearing masks, and more and more people are wearing masks. “These are all Chinese experiences, which are also worthy of affirmation.”
According to the data of the Ministry of health of Iran, by the noon of the 18th local time, 17361 cases had been confirmed, 1135 cases had died and 5710 cases had been cured.
From the available data, Iran has a high mortality and cure rate. According to Ma Xuejun, there are two main reasons for the high fatality rate. One is that all suspected cases have not been detected, and the actual number of people infected exceeds the number reported. The other is that the shortage of medical equipment, instruments, drugs, medical staff and beds in ICU has affected the cure level.
With regard to the high cure rate, Ma Xuejun analyzed that the discharge standards of patients in Iran and China are different. There is no nucleic acid test in Iran’s discharge standards, but in China, patients need to have two negative nucleic acid tests to be discharged. Loose discharge standards also contain risks. According to him, Iran has taken a compromise approach and built many centralized and isolated observation points, with about 10000 beds. Patients admitted and discharged continue to be observed intensively.
According to reports, in the past 20 days in Iran, the Chinese expert team and experts from who, Iran investigation team, Iran’s Ministry of health, local designated hospitals and other units have conducted many in-depth exchanges, taking this opportunity to learn about the current situation of prevention and control in Iran at all levels, and also promote China’s prevention and control experience. “I’m glad that China’s prevention and control experience has been highly recommended by who and highly recognized by the Ministry of health of Iran.”
“When we first arrived in Iran, there were only three local laboratories capable of testing, and now it has expanded to 50, with a daily testing capacity of 6000 people.” Ma said, however, given the huge number of infections, Iran’s existing capacity is far from meeting the needs of testing, and many patients with mild illness isolated at home have not been effectively tested. Because of this, who is calling on more countries, including China, to actively support Iran in its fight against the epidemic.
Referring to the trend of Iran’s epidemic situation, Ma Xuejun pointed out that at present, the local beds and testing reagents can not meet the needs of “testing to the full” and “receiving to the full” recommended by China’s experience. He repeatedly stressed in the connection that the key to control the epidemic in Iran depends on the sustainability of prevention and control measures, including the cooperation of the people, the publicity of the government and the implementation of laws and regulations. On the other hand, to solve or at least alleviate the shortage of testing reagents, personal protection and medical materials is the biggest challenge facing Iran.

Zhang Ziyi has two children

On January 1, 2020, Zhang Ziyi gave birth to a second child, perhaps the best gift for her new year.
How soft Zhang Ziyi is now, how sharp she used to be.
At the age of 19, Zhang Ziyi acted as Zhao Di, a rural girl in my father and mother. She had two braids of hemp. She was obviously not involved in the world, but her eyes were full of emotions.
After that, she became more and more powerful, and gradually grew into a woman warrior who could fight at any time.
When “Crouching Tiger, hidden dragon” started shooting, it was said that Zhang Yimou recommended Zhang Ziyi to Ang Lee, but Ang Lee decided to appoint new people after careful consideration. Unexpectedly, the newcomer failed to carry the training of too high intensity, temporarily quit, Zhang Ziyi just had a chance again.
Zhang Ziyi cherishes the chance of recovery. She is the most hardworking person in the cast. She is oppressed and injured, and all is gritting her teeth.
But she felt that director Ang Lee never recognized her.
“It’s not good, it’s not encouraging. He will encourage Michelle Yeoh and Chow Yun fat. Every day I can see the picture of his encouragement. I always look forward to it. Every day I’m basically going to finish ten minutes and twenty minutes late. I’ll wait. I hope the director can encourage me today, but it never happened. “
Until that day, Ang Lee held her and gave Yu Jiaolong a hug.
Later, she was known as “international chapter” and “little Gong Li”. She fought for herself with ruthlessness.
Emotional road also suffered a lot, ups and downs until Wang Feng met.
When their relationship was just exposed, because of the gap between their careers, the outside world was not optimistic, but what Zhang Ziyi was good at was to live more beautifully in a voice of saying no.
