China News Service, Shanghai, March 24 (Reporter Chen Jing) At the press conference on the prevention and control of the new crown pneumonia epidemic in Shanghai held on the 24th, Wu Jinglei, director of the Shanghai Municipal Health Commission, said that Shanghai will strictly conduct nucleic acid screening and optimize Organize and expand the layout, accelerate the improvement of large-scale nucleic acid detection capabilities, and strengthen the coordination and precise scheduling of the whole process of "collection, delivery, inspection, and reporting".

  It is reported that on the 23rd, Shanghai added 4 local confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia and 979 local asymptomatic infections.

All 4 confirmed cases were found in closed-loop isolation control.

101 local asymptomatic infections were found in nucleic acid screening of relevant risk groups.

983 positive infected persons have been closed-loop transferred to the designated hospital for new coronary pneumonia in Shanghai or the temporary centralized isolation and treatment point for isolation treatment or isolation medical observation. The current situation is stable.

On the same day, 81 confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia in Shanghai recovered and were discharged from hospital, and 230 asymptomatic infections were released from medical observation, for a total of 311 cases.

  Wu Jinglei said that, after research and decision by the Shanghai New Coronary Pneumonia Epidemic Prevention and Control Leading Group Office, from now on, the third team of Xingnan Village, Meilong Town, Minhang District, the third team of Xupu Village, Huacao Town, and No. 19, Lane 935, Miaoqiao Road, Kangqiao Town, Pudong New Area It is listed as a medium-risk area, and relevant areas have implemented control measures.

  Wu Jinglei pointed out that Shanghai should focus on the characteristics and laws of the spread of Omicron variant strains, follow the requirements of "rolling screening, focusing on key points, cutting off the transmission chain, implementing a closed loop, weaving a dense prevention and control network, and controlling the social aspect". Do a good job in medical services, especially give full play to the characteristics and advantages of traditional Chinese medicine, strengthen psychological counseling and other work, keep emergency medical channels open, improve the prevention and control capabilities of various districts, resolutely curb the spread of the epidemic, and achieve social zero as soon as possible.

  It is understood that from March 16 to 20, Shanghai carried out large-scale nucleic acid screening in key and non-key areas.

On this basis, relevant departments will further narrow down and lock key areas according to the distribution of abnormal personnel to screen, and on this basis, will be more scientifically divided, continue to carry out accurate screening for high-risk areas, and find potential close contact, Sub-close connection, timely management of risk sources, and speed up the investigation.

  On the 22nd, the National Health and Health Commission announced the "Regional Implementation Guidelines for Novel Coronavirus Nucleic Acid Detection Organizations (Third Edition)" (hereinafter referred to as the new version of the Guidelines).

Wu Jinglei said that the delineation of nucleic acid detection areas is more refined, the time limit for nucleic acid detection tasks to be completed has been shortened, and various links such as "collection, delivery, inspection, and reporting" have been optimized.

The new version of the guidelines also strengthens several important aspects of nucleic acid testing, requiring all localities to set up special classes, which provides organizational guarantees for the rapid scheduling, integration and full play of resources in a shorter period of time.

  Wu Jinglei said that in the next step, Shanghai will refine the organization and implementation plan according to the new version of the guidelines, strengthen staffing, improve work processes, strengthen the coordination and precise scheduling of the whole process of "collection, delivery, inspection, and reporting", and summarize experience in practice. Improve nucleic acid detection capabilities.
