China’s many outbreaks of disease Zhang Wenhong: the virus has been resident must make long-term preparations

In response to a new wave of Chinese communist virus (2019 coronavirus) epidemics in China’s Liaoning and Anhui provinces, Zhang Wenhong, an expert in communist infectious diseases and director of the Department of Infection at Huashan Hospital of Fudan University in Shanghai, said on May 16 that the disease has become a “resident virus in the world” and must be prepared for a long-term response.

On May 16, Zhang Wenhong posted an article on Sina Weibo, discussing again the roadmap to eliminate the Communist virus epidemic.

In response to the outbreaks in Taiwan and China’s Liaoning and Anhui provinces, Zhang said that the virus has not left on its own, but is distributed around the world, and that if we relax our prevention and control measures a little, the epidemic will restart immediately and spread at a rate that is no less than last year.

He wrote that according to the experience of more than a year, as long as strict social distance restrictions are adopted and testing and personnel movement tracking are strengthened, it is only a matter of time before the epidemic is controlled in the aforementioned places.

However, he also cautioned that with the current global epidemic, the CCP virus has become the world’s resident virus, and “we must be prepared for a long-term response.”

Zhang Wenhong said that none of the confirmed cases in Yingkou, Liaoning, and Liuan, Anhui, had been vaccinated.

Liaoning, Anhui outbreak affects Beijing’s Xicheng District

According to mainland media reports, since May 13, local confirmed cases and asymptomatic infections have been reported in Anhui and Liaoning. As of 7 p.m. on May 15, there were 11 new confirmed local cases (five in Anhui and six in Liaoning).

The report said that the confirmed cases had traveled to Lanzhou, Beijing, Dalian, Yingkou and other cities and counties around May 1, which once again sounded the alarm for the prevention and control of the epidemic in China. As of May 14, a total of 12 areas in Anhui and Liaoning were listed as medium-risk areas.

On May 16, two more confirmed cases were reported in Lu’an, Anhui Province, and one case was reported in Shenyang, Liaoning Province. The Xicheng District of Beijing was also notified by the Liuan CDC that three members of a family in the district were contacts of a confirmed patient in Liuan.

In response to the source of the virus, Anhui and Liaoning dumped each other. The official notification from Anhui said that a woman surnamed Li had visited five cities in three provinces in the past 18 days, which is believed to be the source of the spread of the local epidemic in Anhui. It is reported that the woman surnamed Li had been in contact with people outside the country in Dalian, Liaoning province. Dalian officials, on the other hand, then released the woman’s track of activities in Dalian, slapping Anhui with the claim that there was no contact.

The mutual dumping of the two provinces triggered criticism from the official media for talking about themselves, which intensified public suspicion and concern. As the epidemic situation in mainland China has been opaque, outsiders believe that the epidemic may not be able to be concealed across the mainland.

Officials of the Communist Party of China warned about the epidemic

“After the May 1 holiday, the Chinese Communist Party’s Xinhua News Agency reported on May 7 that the CDC recommended that the public should observe themselves for 14 days after returning from a trip, and that they should seek medical attention and tell their doctors about their travel history as soon as they develop suspicious symptoms.

On May 8, the CCP’s Health and Welfare Commission also said that the current epidemic prevention and control situation remains serious and complex, with the risk of an epidemic rising and the risk of a mutated strain being introduced into China not to be ignored.

On May 9, the party media published Li Keqiang’s speech at the State Council’s clean government work meeting, saying that localities should “seek truth from facts, release information openly and transparently, curb epidemics in key areas, and improve the normalized prevention and control mechanism”.

The hosts believe that this is an official assessment that the epidemic may not be covered up, so the public opinion is being paved in advance, ready to put the blame on foreign countries. “In fact, we know from special authoritative channels that the three northeastern provinces” where the epidemic resumed a while ago still have epidemics up to now, only that officials are covering it up.

“And there are still people dying every day in China up to now because of the epidemic. So please, friends all over China, must not take it lightly.” Tang Hao reminded.
