How to treat the mutated strain of the new coronavirus IHU?

Let's see it together.

  Zhong Nanshan: The turning point of this round of epidemic in Xi'an has appeared

  Academician Zhong Nanshan said that the inflection point of this round of the epidemic in Xi'an should have appeared. The peak was more than 170 confirmed cases a day, and 63 cases on January 5, which have been declining.

Xi'an has adopted extremely strict prevention and control measures, and now it seems to be effective.

  Zhong Nanshan: Don’t over-interpret the new coronavirus variant strain IHU at present

  Regarding the emerging new coronavirus variant strain IHU, Academician Zhong Nanshan said that there is no need to over-interpret it at this time.

It has more mutation sites than Omi Keron, with 46 and Omi Keron at 35. In theory, its immune escape ability to vaccines and resistance to some antibodies may be stronger.

  But for the new mutant strains, there are still many unknowns. Now we need to make more rigorous observations. One is whether its transmission power will become the mainstream, and the other is whether its pathogenicity is relatively low.

  Zhong Nanshan: Non-closed zones can go home for the New Year without a complete shutdown

  Regarding the coming Chinese New Year, academician Zhong Nanshan believes that in areas that are not closed, that is, low-risk areas, citizens can go home for the New Year conditionally on the premise of prevention and control, and do not need to shut down completely.
