On May 21, at the 341st press conference on the prevention and control of the new coronavirus pneumonia in Beijing, Wang Jianhui, deputy head of the Beijing community prevention and control team, said that during the epidemic, disinfection of the external environment is an important prevention and control measure. Environmental disinfection should be implemented in the closed control area according to the classification of high and low risks.

He especially emphasized that no matter whether it is a closed or controlled area, it is not necessary to carry out extensive disinfection of the outdoor environment to avoid excessive disinfection.
