China’s outbreak prevention and control exposes grassroots weaknesses
Comprehensive Chinese media sources have reported recent outbreaks of new indigenous confirmed cases of New Coronavirus (CCP virus) in Anhui and Liaoning. Yingkou City, Liaoning Province, announced the trajectory of three new indigenous cases and five indigenous asymptomatic infections. A total of three confirmed local cases and seven asymptomatic infections were reported in Lu’an City, Anhui Province.
The information released by Anhui Hefei and Liaoning Yingkou was found to be a serious failure of individual grassroots clinics and pharmacies as sentinel sites for epidemic prevention and control.
The company is also a member of the Board of Directors of the National Institute of Technology (NIT).
According to another official announcement of the flow of information in Yingkou, Liaoning Province, the local outbreak appeared to have patients who showed symptoms to a grassroots clinic 10 days before the diagnosis was confirmed, but the clinic failed to detect the outbreak early and the clinic doctor was also confirmed to be asymptomatic of the infection.
The Surfing News reported that grassroots clinics, which have been called “sentinel sites” for epidemic prevention and control, are required by several epidemic prevention and control programs to stay as “sentinel sites” once suspicious patients are found, and to report them within two hours. The failure of the “sentinel” point will allow the new crown epidemic to miss the “early detection” time.
