  On January 2nd, China-Singapore Jingwei inquired on the 12306 website and found that the train tickets for the day before the Spring Festival Transport in 2022 (January 16) were sufficient in most areas, but the business special seats were more popular.

Expert: There is no need to advocate in-situ Chinese New Year in low-risk areas

  Regarding the issue of whether to celebrate the Chinese New Year in situ during the Spring Festival, at the State Council’s Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism press conference on December 18, 2021, Liang Wannian, head of the expert group of the Leading Group for Epidemic Response and Handling of the National Health Commission, pointed out that localities must be based on risks. According to research and judgment, the whole country cannot be "one size fits all." It is necessary to conduct comprehensive analysis and evaluation, and introduce relevant policies in accordance with local conditions.

Areas at high risk of the epidemic, special areas such as ports and borders, and areas preparing for major events, should continue to maintain relatively strict control measures; other areas, comprehensively considering the risk level, personal immunity status, and epidemic situation, etc. , Accurate and temperature-controlled customs policies, avoid "one size fits all" and reflect the requirements for precise prevention and control.

  Recently, Wu Zunyou, the chief epidemiologist of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, also said that in high-risk areas, where the number of cases is large, and where the epidemic is not under control, in order to prevent the spread, it is possible to advocate local Chinese New Year.

In low-risk areas, there are no locally transmitted cases, and there is no need to advocate local Chinese New Year.

  At present, Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Dalian and many other places have successively issued warnings on the prevention and control of the Spring Festival epidemic.

Among them, Shanghai’s "Regulations on Strengthening the Prevention and Control of the Epidemic During the New Year’s Day and Spring Festival" mentioned: In addition to returning home to visit relatives, necessary official duties, etc., it is not necessary to leave Shanghai and not to leave the country if it is not necessary. It is encouraged to spend the holidays in Shanghai and minimize the number of personnel. Flow; personnel from high-risk areas of the domestic epidemic should temporarily postpone coming to Shanghai and returning to Shanghai until the risk level of the area drops to a low risk before returning to Shanghai; for all those who come from or pass through areas with high domestic epidemic risk or the local government declares a closed management area Those who come back to Shanghai will be quarantined for 14 days for health observation, and 4 new coronavirus nucleic acid tests will be carried out.
