For two consecutive days, more than

  500 new local infections were added in a single day

  On March 8, Anqing, Anhui Province reported asymptomatic infections. So far this year, at least 27 provinces across the country have reported new coronary pneumonia infections.

  A reporter from Beiqing Daily noticed that the outbreaks reported in many places in recent days were all Omicoron mutants. The heads of local government departments in Gansu, Shandong, Shaanxi and other local government departments with Omicoron epidemics all said that the mutants are highly contagious and spread. It is more complex and hidden, and the prevention and control is more difficult.

The person in charge of the Xi'an Municipal Health and Health Commission said on the 8th that the Omicron variant strain is more contagious and spreads faster. The symptoms of infection are not typical, lack specific manifestations, the clinical differential diagnosis is relatively difficult, and patients are not motivated to seek medical treatment. , it is difficult to detect at the first time, and it is easier to spread or focus on multiple outbreaks.

  Yunnan

  3 college students infected

  Two of them live in the same dormitory

  On the morning of March 8, Xu Rui, deputy director of the Health Committee of Kunming City, Yunnan Province, announced at a local press conference that on March 7, Chenggong District, Kunming City reported 2 confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia, which were taken at the fever clinic. It was found in nucleic acid screening of medical personnel; 1 case of asymptomatic infection was reported, which was found in close contacts.

  According to the report, the three infected persons are all students of Yunnan Arts Institute, two of them live in the same dormitory, and the other infected person lives in the opposite dormitory.

  Shandong

  Lacey added 75 infected people in half a day on the 8th

  Weihai cases are all related to a training class

The nucleic acid test results of the above persons were all positive.

Based on the epidemiological history, clinical manifestations and laboratory test results, the expert group diagnosed cases 164-175 were all confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia (mild), and 63 cases were asymptomatic infections, and they are currently receiving isolation treatment in designated hospitals.

  According to the press conference on epidemic prevention and control held in Qingdao on the morning of the 8th, since the outbreak of the Lacey epidemic on March 4th, as of 24:00 on March 7th, Lacey City has reported a total of 163 confirmed cases and 242 asymptomatic infections. example.

2 confirmed cases and 14 asymptomatic infections have all been transferred to Weihai Chest Hospital.

The preliminary results of the nucleic acid test of the first confirmed case were the Omicron variant.

  The preliminary results of the epidemiological investigation showed that the 2 confirmed cases and 13 asymptomatic infections were all personnel and their families who participated in the We-Media Training Course of Dingxin Building in the Economic Development Zone.

Another case of asymptomatic infection was detected through the "exhaustive inspection" of key groups.

  According to reports, the preliminary results of the nucleic acid test of the first confirmed case in Weihai City are the Omicron variant, which is highly infectious, more complicated and hidden in transmission, and more difficult to prevent and control.

Although there were a large number of new positive infections on the 8th, there was a strong correlation between the 2 confirmed cases and 14 asymptomatic infections, all of which were detected in the key populations that have been controlled. The close contacts have also taken control measures in a timely manner.

  Shaanxi

  At least 3 generations of transmission have occurred in this round

  The task of prevention and control is very difficult

The sequencing results showed that they were all Omicron variants. Strain BA.2 clade.

Although the source and chain of infection of this round of epidemic are relatively clear, the evolutionary branch of the BA.2 variant of the Omicron variant strain spreads faster and with stronger infectivity, and at least three generations of transmission have occurred since the first case was reported. , and spread to Xi'an, Baoji, Hanzhong and Shanxi Province in Shaanxi Province. The risk of subsequent cluster epidemics is high, and the task of prevention and control is very arduous.
