Why has it become the hardest hit area?

  Nanjing Lukou International Airport is located in Lukou Street, Jiangning District, which is also the current concentration of high-risk areas in Nanjing.

  The introduction information on the government service website of Lukou Street shows that the street is the hinterland of the Nanjing Airport Hub Economic Zone, with a total area of ​​165 square kilometers, 30 villages (communities) under its jurisdiction, and a registered population of 91,000.

  From the geographical point of view, some communities or villages around the airport are only a few kilometers away from the airport in a straight line, and commuting time by electric bike is only tens of minutes.

  The published information shows that the confirmed airport staff live in communities or natural villages around the airport, and their daily activities are highly concentrated, which explains why a large number of cases have appeared in the same area in a short period of time.

Cases involve college dormitories, taxi drivers, etc.

  There are densely populated cases around the airport, and there is a high degree of correlation between the cases... This epidemic inevitably reminiscent of the similar situation that occurred in Shijiazhuang, Hebei earlier this year.

  In fact, with the increasing pressure of foreign defense imports, China has been continuously upgrading various prevention and control measures.

  After the outbreak in Shijiazhuang, Hebei, the Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council also issued the "Notice on Further Doing a Good Job in the Prevention and Control of the Current New Coronary Pneumonia Epidemic", emphasizing the need to strengthen the surrounding areas of the airport, the urban-rural fringe, and rural areas where there are more workers returning home. To prevent and control the epidemic, strengthen grid-based and refined management.

  However, after more than half a year, Nanjing Lukou International Airport "fallen" again.

  Public information shows that among the confirmed cases in Nanjing, there have also been a number of college dormitories, as well as training teachers, taxi drivers, etc. The risk of the spread of the epidemic can be imagined.

Expert: The airport garbage must be cleaned up carefully!

  What are the high-risk loopholes that led to this epidemic?

  Zhang Boli, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, recently said that the domestic epidemics were basically imported from abroad before, and the traceability work is still in progress and is currently uncertain.

However, Lukou is an international airport, which is likely to be caused by cold chain transportation or personnel transmission.

  "This epidemic shows that there are still loopholes in epidemic prevention, and we should be highly vigilant."

  Zhang Boli analyzed that the epidemic indicated that the airport may have imprecise aspects in terms of garbage disposal, airport cleaning, warehouse cleaning, etc., and more detailed investigations are needed to plug the loopholes.

  Zhang Boli suggested: Actively promote and vaccinate; plug loopholes; summer vacation is the peak tourist season, so wear a mask.

  Starting on the 26th, Lukou Sub-district launched the third round of nucleic acid testing for all employees.

  While strictly preventing the spread of the virus, reflection is essential!
