(Fighting against New Coronary Pneumonia) Disease Control: "Dynamic Clearing" is the best choice for China to control the new crown epidemic at this stage

  China News Agency, Beijing, April 12 (Reporter Xing Chong) Wu Zunyou, chief epidemiologist of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said in Beijing on the 12th that "laying flat" is actually a helpless choice for other countries. Control practice has proved that "dynamic clearing" is in line with China's actual situation, and it is the best choice for China to control the new crown epidemic in a timely manner at this stage.

  On the same day, the joint prevention and control mechanism of the State Council held a press conference on the strict and earnest efforts to prevent and control the epidemic.

In response to the question of whether it is feasible to allow the virus to spread at a low level, Wu Zunyou said that "lying flat" is actually a helpless choice for other countries. After many attempts, they could not find an ideal strategy to control the new crown, so Just "lie down".

  Wu Zunyou pointed out that the so-called "lying flat" means that in addition to strengthening vaccination, other prevention and control measures are no longer emphasized or simply not taken.

After some countries "flattened", the number of cases and deaths increased significantly, and at this time, these countries tightened their prevention and control strategies.

"More than two years of prevention and control practices in my country have proved that 'dynamic clearing' is in line with China's actual situation, and it is the best choice for my country to control the new crown epidemic in a timely manner at this stage."

  Talking about the infectivity of asymptomatic infections, Wu Zunyou said that first of all, we must have a scientific and accurate conceptual understanding of "asymptomatic infections". Some asymptomatic infections are likely to be the incubation period of confirmed cases. After observing for a period of time, Symptoms will appear and even develop into severe disease. If they are not detected and treated in time, there will still be risks.

  Wu Zunyou pointed out that centralized isolation has three advantages: First, all asymptomatic and mild cases under centralized isolation observation are infected people, and there will be no problem of cross-transmission and spread; second, they can receive traditional Chinese medicine treatment during the centralized isolation period. , to improve immunity and prevent it from becoming severe or critical; third, if a patient develops into a severe disease during the centralized isolation and observation period, it can be detected and transferred in time.

"So if there are mild and asymptomatic infections, we must try our best to gather these people to designated isolation points for isolation and observation."

  In response to the fact that some positive infected people are too late to transfer to the isolation point, Wu Zunyou reminded that they should pay attention to personal protection to reduce the risk of infection to family members, neighbors, and community residents.

Those diagnosed with the infection should live in a bedroom alone, preferably with a separate bathroom, and do not share meals or communicate with their family members; families of positive infected persons should disinfect their living rooms, bathrooms and other environments in a timely manner, and resolutely prevent the phenomenon of visiting people and activities in the community, People communicate; residents living in the same building or community are quarantined at home and are not allowed to go out during the period when the building and community are under lockdown management.
