    At present, the situation of epidemic prevention and control in Harbin is still very grim, and import prevention and proliferation prevention are top priorities.

    On February 1st, relevant departments announced two typical cases of outbreaks caused by family gatherings. I hope the general public will take this as a warning and consciously avoid gathering, gathering and meals during the epidemic prevention and control period, and create “Everyone for me 'I am for everyone' prevention and control atmosphere to prevent the occurrence of cluster epidemics.

    Typical case 1: 1 person infected 4 people

    On January 18, Chen Mo, a student of Wuhan University of Technology, had a dinner with his classmate Li after returning to Kazakhstan. After the dinner, they took a taxi to go home. Li did not travel after returning home.

    On January 24, Li attended a family gathering. The participants were all family members and a total of 9 people. They are:

    Li and his grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, aunt, aunt, cousin, cousin, Lee had runny symptoms when attending the party.

    From January 24-26, Li and his mother lived together with his aunt's family.

    On January 28, Li went to the Heilongjiang Provincial Electric Power Hospital for fever, and the diagnosis was normal.

    On January 30, he went to the Harbin Infectious Diseases Hospital for a diagnosis and was diagnosed with a new coronavirus infection pneumonia (no previous medical history).

    Four of the other eight people who participated in the party were diagnosed with new-type coronavirus-infected pneumonia, namely: Li's grandfather, grandmother, father, and cousin.

    Typical case 2: 1 person infected 2 people + 4 people

    On January 24, Lumou and his family met for a total of 7 members. They are:

    Lu and his mother, husband, son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter.

    On January 25, Lu and his husband and son went to Lanxi County, Heilongjiang Province to participate in a family party with a total of more than 10 people.

    On January 27th, Lu went to the First Hospital of Harbin City for a fever clinic. After the consultation, his condition worsened and he was hospitalized.

    On January 30, he was referred to the Harbin Infectious Diseases Hospital, and a new coronavirus-infected pneumonia was confirmed that day.

    Among her close contacts, Lu's husband and granddaughter have been diagnosed with pneumonitis infected by a new coronavirus.

    The other four mothers, sons, daughters, and grandchildren of Lu Mou who attended the dinner on January 24 were all suspected cases.

        Published in China 丨 China Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Whether new type of coronavirus can be transmitted through feces and mouth needs further confirmation
        Published: 2020-02-02 16:36:45 | Source: China Network | Author: Jin Huihui

        China Network February 2 (Reporter Jin Huihui) Feng Luzhao, a researcher at the Department of Infectious Diseases of the China Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said today that the new type of coronavirus has been detected in the stools of confirmed patients in Wuhan, Shenzhen and even the United States. The digestive tract replicates and exists, but is not transmitted through the feces, or re-transmitted through the formation of aerosols by virus-containing droplets, which needs further confirmation by epidemiological investigations and studies.

        Feng Luzhao pointed out that the main way of new type of coronavirus infection is mainly by close droplet transmission and indirect contact transmission. These phenomena remind us of the importance of washing hands frequently, especially when contacting the surface of easily contaminated objects, washing hands before meals and in the office. Is a very important means of protection.

                up to date! Hubei: Centrally isolate all suspected cases! Wuhan will enforce enforcement against those who refuse to cooperate
                Time: 2020-02-02 19:34:00 Author: Source: Hubei Provincial People's Government Network

                Comment Submission Print Forward Copy Link Small | Medium | Large

                On the morning of February 2nd, the Hubei Provincial New Coronary Virus Infection Pneumonia Prevention and Control Headquarters convened a meeting to emphasize that the current situation in the province's prevention and control is still extremely severe. It is necessary to implement fine basic work and resolutely follow the "Four Concentrations" Centrally isolate all suspected patients.

                (1) Compression screening diagnosis process. Simplify and shorten the screening process as much as possible, avoid multiple cross-infection of suspected cases to and from the hospital, and resolutely control the source of infection. Simplify the diagnosis and shunt procedures, and avoid delays for mild patients and home-based isolation observers to become serious.

                (2) Centrally isolate all suspected cases. All suspected cases should be quarantined, tested, diagnosed and treated to prevent cross infection. All localities must speed up the setting up of designated hospitals and establish isolation wards and isolation wards. Requisition hotels, guest houses, idle factory buildings, etc., and quickly set up spare isolation places and equip them with necessary living, disinfection and medical facilities.

                23. Every effort is made to improve the capacity of treatment. Continue to coordinate the deployment of medical resources to vacate as many beds as possible; speed up the progress of new and reconstructed hospitals, accelerate the transformation of general wards for patient treatment; accelerate the speed of bed turnover, and treat more and more urgently needed patients. Relevant leading cadres should be held accountable for those whose beds are unclear and those who have been infected by the relevant hospitals.

                24. Strengthen the search for outbreaks. To do basic grass-roots work, all townships (streets) must establish special classes for village (community) epidemic search, carpet-type search for suspected cases, strictly implement the medical observation system, establish records, establish records, and report abnormalities immediately. ; Strengthen the management of close contacts. Once an epidemic situation is found, immediately search for suspected patients and close contacts, disinfect the contaminated places, and close contacts should be quarantined nearby.

                According to the Yangtze River Daily, Wuhan will centrally treat and isolate "four types of personnel."

                Confirmed patients were collected and treated. Suspected patients were concentratedly isolated. Fever patients and close contacts were concentratedly observed. On the 2nd, according to the requirements of the Wuhan New Coronavirus-infected Pneumonia Prevention and Control Headquarters, all four districts of the city are engaged in the centralized treatment and isolation of "four types of personnel". The purpose is to effectively control the source of infection, to resolutely cut off the route of transmission, Stop the spread of the epidemic.

                Command requires:

                1. Patients with pneumonia diagnosed with new coronavirus infection must be treated intensively. Severe patients must be sent to designated hospitals for treatment. If mild patients cannot be admitted to designated hospitals for treatment, other hospitals or hotels must be requisitioned as temporary treatment areas for centralized treatment.

                (2) Patients with pneumonia suspected to be infected with the new coronavirus must be centrally isolated. Severe patients must be admitted to hospital for treatment, and minor patients cannot be admitted to hospital for isolation, and the hotel must be transformed into a temporary isolation area for centralized isolation. In order to effectively prevent family sexual transmission, home isolation is not allowed. The test result was "shuangyin", but patients whose clinical symptoms meet the conditions of pneumonia of new coronavirus infection are still managed as suspect patients.

                Thirty-three patients with pneumonia that cannot be clearly ruled out for new coronavirus infection must be observed in isolation. For patients with fever with pneumonia that cannot be clearly ruled out for new coronavirus infection, centralized isolation and observation should be performed with reference to the suspected patients, but separated from the suspected patients to prevent cross-infection.

                24. Close contacts of confirmed patients must be observed in concentrated isolation. Because of some virus carriers, they do not develop the disease but are still contagious; some cases are contagious during the incubation period without symptoms. Therefore, close contacts of patients who have been diagnosed should also be observed in concentrated isolation with reference to fever patients.

                12 Before 12 noon on February 2, all districts must complete the centralized treatment and isolation of the existing "Four Types of Personnel", and achieve "day-to-day and day-end" for newly added personnel. "Four types of personnel" must be separated from centralized treatment and isolation sites to effectively prevent cross-infection. It is necessary to arrange medical personnel and logistical support for centralized treatment and isolation points to effectively safeguard the lives and health of the people.

                通告 Notice of Wuhan New Pneumonia Prevention and Control Command (No. 10)

                In accordance with the relevant provisions of the "The Law of the People's Republic of China on Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases", "Emergency Regulations on Public Health Emergencies" and "Interim Measures for the Prevention and Control of Pneumonia of New Coronavirus Infection in Wuhan" as follows:

                From the date of the announcement, on the basis of pre-designated point-of-care isolation and home isolation, close contacts of fever patients and pneumonia patients with pneumonia symptoms diagnosed through fever diagnosis in the city will be arranged by districts and vehicles will be sent to district centralized isolation observation points. , For medical observation, treatment or other preventive measures. The specific quarantine observation time is determined based on the results of the medical examination, and the patient should cooperate; if he refuses to cooperate, the public security organ shall assist the enforcement according to law. During the quarantine period, accommodation and food, medical observation and treatment were provided free of charge in each district. For other fever patients, the community will continue to implement home observation and isolation measures.

                  Academician Zhong Nanshan talks about scientific prevention and control of new coronavirus pneumonia

                  Xinhua News Agency 2020-02-02 20:21:58
                  Since the outbreak of pneumonia infected by the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), the country has joined forces and joined forces to form a city, starting an epidemic-stricken battle without gunpowder.

                  Since the outbreak of pneumonia infected by the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), the country has joined forces and joined forces to form a city, starting an epidemic-stricken battle without gunpowder. Zhong Nanshan, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and leader of the scientific research team for the joint prevention and control of pneumonia epidemic of new coronavirus infection, said in an exclusive interview with Xinhua News Agency on the 2nd that he should have a scientific understanding of the 2019-nCoV pneumonia epidemic, and carry out scientific and effective Prevent and control and avoid unnecessary panic.

                  Research basically supports virus originating from bats

                  Coronavirus (CoV) is a type of enveloped, single-stranded RNA virus that is widely spread in humans, other mammals, and birds, and can cause diseases such as the respiratory, intestinal, liver, and nervous systems. Seven CoVs are currently known to cause human disease, four of which are CoV-229E, -OC43, -NL63, and -HKU1, which are generally prevalent in the population and usually cause common cold symptoms. The other three SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV, including the 2019-nCoV, are severely harmful and can cause severe pneumonia and even death.

                  According to reports, some research results published for 2019-nCoV have some reference significance for epidemic prevention and control. Epidemiological studies indicate that the median age of 2019-nCoV-infected pneumonia patients is 59 years, 56% are male, and the average incubation period for viral infection is 5.2 days (95% confidence interval is 4.1 to 7.0), and 95% of the distribution points are 12.5 days. The average virality was 2.2. Fever is still a typical symptom of 2019-nCoV infected patients. Although asymptomatic infections have also been reported, it is not the main body. For current prevention and control, it is still necessary to focus on the majority. The analysis of the 2019-nCoV genome shows that it has 79.5% similarity with SARS-CoV and 96% similarity with bat-derived CoV, basically supporting 2019-nCoV from bats, but whether there is an intermediate host currently Research is needed. 2019-nCoV, like SARS-CoV, enters human cells through the ACE2 receptor, and the receptor binding domains of the two have a high similarity. Studies have also found that SARS-CoV-specific monoclonal antibody CR3022 can effectively bind to the 2019-nCoV receptor binding domain to neutralize virus infection, which also provides ideas for the development of antibody drugs.

                  Zhong Nanshan introduced that the virus damages the body in two main ways. One is the direct damage caused by the virus' damage to the body's cells; the other is the indirect immune damage caused by the damaged cell tissue. Once the immune response produced by itself is too strong, it may lead to more serious body damage, leading to serious illness.

                  At least 7 small molecule drugs are in different clinical research stages

                  Zhong Nanshan introduced that, so far, 2019-nCoV has not targeted specific effects. Some case-reported therapeutic drugs still need more clinical practice to prove their effectiveness. There are at least 7 small-molecule drugs targeting viral RNA polymerase or protease, including the above CR3022 antibody drugs, which are in different clinical research stages; research and development of related vaccines is also underway, but it takes time to reach clinical application.

                  "However, we have learned from the successful experience of SARS treatment, and have established some effective treatment programs. At the same time, the application of multiple life support methods has ensured the success rate of patients. We use high-throughput oxygen-assisted, non-invasive in critically ill patients. Mask ventilation, small tidal volume lung protective ventilation, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and other adjuvant treatments have achieved good results. With the in-depth understanding of the disease and the accumulation of experience in diagnosis and treatment, the National Health and Medical Commission has repeatedly organized experts The diagnosis and treatment plan was revised, and the "New Coronavirus Infected Pneumonia Diagnosis and Treatment Plan (Trial Version 4)" has been formed, which effectively guided the nationwide diagnosis and treatment of 2019-nCoV pneumonia. "Zhong Nanshan said.

                  The most effective method is still "early detection and early isolation"

                  "At present, the epidemic situation in the country is still on the rise, but we judge that there should not be a national outbreak, but it may only be a partial outbreak." Zhong Nanshan said that in the face of the 2019-nCoV pneumonia outbreak, the most primitive and effective method is still "Early detection and early isolation."

                  "To this end, our government and relevant departments have adopted a number of national measures: extended holidays, traffic control, temperature detection and inspection in public places, active publicity of less gathering, personal protection knowledge, etc., and the improvement of national public safety awareness has also ensured relevant The measures were successfully implemented. "Zhong Nanshan said:" These measures effectively blocked the source of infection and greatly reduced the second and third generation infections. We judge that the epidemic situation is expected to peak in the next 10 days to about two weeks, but we still need to strengthen prevention and control. We must not relax our vigilance. We would like to express our special thanks to Wuhan, a heroic city, for their important sacrifices and contributions. "

                  Problems and Challenges in Epidemic Prevention and Control

                  At the same time, Zhong Nanshan believes that the current epidemic prevention and control work also faces many problems and challenges.

                  "First of all, the epidemic was partially concentrated and medical resources were scarce. At present, the government and relevant departments have learned from the successful experience of Beijing Xiaotangshan Hospital during SARS and newly built Vulcan Mountain Hospital and Lei Shenshan Hospital in Wuhan. A total of 2,300 beds will be placed. Greatly alleviate the problem of patient treatment; in terms of medical personnel, a number of teams of medical experts have been organized to support Wuhan; in terms of medical supplies, the government and social forces need to work together to ensure the distribution of front-line materials.

                  "Second, we need to do a good job of shunting patients to reduce the pressure on designated hospitals. The time is alternated between winter and spring and the climate is changeable. Common respiratory pathogens such as influenza virus are also in the epidemic season, and patients cannot be accurately judged by clinical manifestations in the early stages of the disease. Whether it is the 2019-nCoV infection or other common respiratory virus infections depends on the diagnosis of pathogens. However, the diagnosis of pathogens in primary hospitals is insufficient, resulting in the inability to shunt patients, which makes fever patients concentrated in a limited number of designated hospitals without shunting As a result, related hospitals are facing tremendous pressure, which also seriously affects patient treatment and epidemic prevention and control. Therefore, it is urgent to improve the ability of primary-level hospitals to screen and diagnose pathogens, realize diversion and treatment of patients, and reduce the pressure of epidemic prevention and control.

                  "Thirdly, we need to do a good job in preventing and controlling hospital sensations. Patients with high outbreaks, such as in Wuhan and other places, have surged, and relative medical resources are short, which can easily lead to hospital sensations and threaten the safety of medical staff and the public. Process management needs to be optimized to effectively protect front-line hospitals The hospital senses prevention and control facilities, equipment and related materials. "

                  "It takes one mind to overcome difficulties"

                  Zhong Nanshan believes that scientific research needs to be accelerated to provide support for epidemic prevention and control. He believes that at present there is less understanding of 2019-nCoV and its infection characteristics.

                    Machine translation of an article concerning the volunteer drivers of Wuhan. The dates are a little mixed up but the article appears to say that they are less busy than they were - previously making a dozen or so trips a day and now half that amount. I do not know how to verify this - but if it is true - then it is very encouraging.


                    snip.... I thought there were only two orders today. As a result, a total of five or six medical staff were picked up. I can't remember. I also took more than 600 bags of sliced ​​bread to Hankou Hospital. More than 500 bags were given to medical staff of Hankou Hospital, and 110 bags were given to volunteer drivers.

                    ?The only security we have is our ability to adapt."

                      Tell the story! This is how these people get infected with the new coronavirus

                      Jinyang News. Reporter Feng Xixi and correspondent Guangdong CDC report: Recently, with the continuous deepening of the epidemiological investigation of the new coronavirus, on February 2, the Guangdong Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention shared some real cases with the society.

                      Case number one:

                      A 26-year-old young man who recently lived in Zhuhai was diagnosed with a new coronavirus-infected pneumonia last week. An epidemiologist from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention carried out an investigation. Sun Mo also took a bus. The bus traveled from Guangzhou South Railway Station to Zhuhai in 2 hours.

                      Case two

                      A man was recently diagnosed with the new coronavirus, but he had no obvious history of going out and had not been to a farmer's market. He was also wondering why he was infected. A subsequent epidemiological investigation found that he and another new coronavirus-infected person were neighbors upstairs and downstairs, most likely infected by the same elevator.

                      Some people may ask, is it that they will become close contacts in the same car as the patient?

                      Experts from the Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention said that the definition of close contacts is different in different modes of transportation. Let's take a look at the basic situation:


                      In general, all passengers in the same row and three rows in front and back of case seats in civil aircraft cabins, as well as flight attendants who provide cabin services in the above-mentioned areas, serve as close contacts. Other passengers on the same flight as general contacts.

                      Railway passenger train

                      ① All passengers and flight attendants in case of fully enclosed air-conditioned trains with hard seats, hard sleepers or soft sleepers in the same compartment.

                      ② Take non-fully enclosed ordinary trains, passengers in the same room with soft sleepers in the same room, or passengers in the same compartment and adjacent compartments in the same section of the hard seat (hard sleeper) compartments, and attendants serving the area.


                      ① When traveling in a fully-sealed air-conditioned bus, all persons traveling in the same car as the case.

                      ② When riding in a ventilated ordinary passenger car, passengers and drivers in three rows of seats before and after the same case as the case.


                      All persons in the same cabin as the case and the flight attendants serving the cabin.

                      If the patient has severe symptoms such as high fever, sneezing, coughing, and vomiting during contact with the case, they should be treated as close contacts regardless of the length of time.

                      Citizen: How high is the risk of infection in the same elevator?

                      Because the new coronavirus can be transmitted through contact, if a patient sneezes or coughs in the elevator, it may pollute the elevator buttons and other places. If healthy people touch the eyes or mouth without washing their hands in time, they may be infected.

                      Experts from the Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention appeal to everyone to do the following to ensure everyone's health.

                      Wash your hands frequently

                      Wash your hands before and after meals, after wearing a mask before taking off your mask, when going home, and before and after preparing food.

                      Wash your hands with hand soap or soap for 20 seconds, then wash your hands with clean water. If there is no condition, you can use disposable hand sanitizer.

                      2. Pay attention to windows and ventilation at home

                      The home should keep the window open and ventilated for a certain period of time every day. It is recommended to open the window 3 times a day for more than half an hour each time.

                      3. Take precautions when going out

                      Try not to walk or gather.

                      If you need to go to a crowded place, wear a mask when traveling.

                      Reduce access to public goods and parts of the vehicle.

                      4. Pay attention to cough etiquette

                      If you are not wearing a mask, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or elbow when you cough or sneeze. Discard used tissues in a trash can and wash your hands in a timely manner.

                      5. Cover before flushing the toilet

                      Some patients with new type of coronavirus infections have abdominal pain and diarrhea. Testing found that the virus can be detected in the feces. It cannot be ruled out that flushing of the toilet will cause the presence of fecal particles aerosol.

                      It is recommended that everyone, especially patients, suspected patients, and close contacts, be sure to cover the toilet before flushing to reduce the generation of indoor virus aerosols and the risk of infection of family members, caregivers and others.

                      6. Elevator disinfection

                      Residential properties should be pasted in places where elevator buttons, billboards, etc. are often touched, and disinfected and replaced every 1-2 hours.

                        Guangdong, Fujian, Jiangxi and other places announced that new pneumonia cases involve communities and places

                        Information disclosure will not only help citizens understand the development of the epidemic, but also reduce panic and prevent rumors.

                        Beijing News (Reporter Sha Xueliang, Deng Qi, Xu Wen) On the afternoon of February 2, the Guangzhou Municipal Health Commission announced that 179 cases of pneumonia diagnosed with new-type coronavirus infection involved 91 districts or places in 11 districts. In the morning of the same day, Nanchang Jiangxi announced the detailed addresses of six new confirmed cases.

                        The Beijing News reporter found that recently, Guangdong, Jiangxi, Fujian and other places have begun to announce the places and communities where confirmed cases are involved.

                        Villages and communities where confirmed cases are announced in Nanchang

                        In the afternoon of February 2nd, the Guangzhou Municipal Health Commission announced for the first time 179 cases of pneumonia diagnosed with new-type coronavirus infection involving 91 communities or places in 11 districts, including roads, hotels, commercial and residential buildings, and residential districts.

                        Will this cause panic? The Guangzhou Municipal Health and Health Committee stated in the report that the disease control department has immediately carried out strict terminal disinfection of the communities involved. I hope that everyone should not panic and don't care too much about the presence of cases in the community. Personal protection is also required. "

                        The Beijing News reporter found that Shenzhen was the first city to disclose relevant information nationwide. On January 30, Shenzhen for the first time announced a total of 31 communities or places where confirmed cases had been active during the onset of illness. On January 31, Shenzhen, Zhongshan, Zhuhai, Meizhou, Foshan and other places began to publicize the list of communities or places where confirmed cases have stayed.

                        Following Shenzhen, places such as Xiamen, Fujian, Putian and Xinyu, Jiangxi have also announced the locations and areas involved in the cases.

                        On February 1, Nanchang, Jiangxi announced the “detailed addresses” of 83 confirmed cases. The Beijing News reporter found from the published form that the published address was down to the street, town, community, and village levels. On February 2nd, Nanchang City announced the addresses of 6 additional confirmed cases.

                        Shenzhen officials claim to help strengthen community joint prevention and control

                        A reporter from the Beijing News contacted the Shenzhen Health and Health Commission, which first announced the cases and places where the confirmed cases were involved. The relevant person in charge stated that the announcement of this information was based on citizens' demands and also helped to strengthen community joint defense and control.

                        Previously, the relevant person in charge of the Shenzhen Municipal Health and Health Commission told the media that information disclosure not only helps citizens understand the development of the epidemic, but also reduces panic and avoids rumors. The clearer the information is, the more citizens have the right to know and be safe. A sense of awareness can also help the public understand how to manage themselves and be more vigilant. To this end, the Shenzhen Municipal Health and Health Commission will make the public information accurate from the administrative area where the case is located to the specific residential area.

                        "It will definitely be better when it is announced." Ms. Shang, who has worked and lived in Shenzhen for nearly 20 years, told reporters that the more the information is published, the more targeted the ordinary citizens will be.

                        "Responding to the epidemic with information transparency and avoiding social panic." A few days ago, Wang Hongwei, an expert in the construction of the national health emergency system and a researcher at the National Development and Strategic Research Institute of Renmin University of China, wrote in the Beijing News that from the experience of SARS in the past year, When the authoritative information is absent, the gossip news will occupy a vacuum and satisfy people's informed mentality, but it will also cause huge social panic and trigger a panic buying of medicines and commodities such as banlangen, vinegar and anti-viral oral liquid.

                            Chongqing under the influence of new coronavirus: large-scale commercial complex suspended business, mask sales of pharmacies changed to "online"

                            On February 2nd, the New Year's Day, the last day of this extended Spring Festival holiday, the streets of Baishi Town, Zhongxian County, Chongqing were still deserted. On the fifth and sixth day of the previous year, the streets have already been crowded with private cars with license plates from other provinces. These are locals from Zhongxian who return home from Jiangsu, Zhejiang or Guangdong.

                            The pneumonia epidemic of new coronavirus infections has not only changed the working and living rhythms of rural people, but also changed the appearance of cities during the Spring Festival.

                            In the main urban area of ​​Chongqing, large-scale commercial complexes that people used to shop around were forced to suspend business, and some restaurants have come up with "free masks" to attract customers. And the people who purchase living goods in the supermarket market have shown that the city is still "low-key" in an orderly rhythm.
                            Large commercial complex suspended

                            On the road from Baishi Town to Chongqing's main urban area, there are fewer vehicles than in the same period of the previous year, and the unobstructed journey makes the driving time much shorter than usual. In the past, the bustling highway service area looked far away, and it was difficult to see people. Only some private cars parked at the front ping of the service area.

                            As early as January 29, Chongqing has issued a notice. In order to combat the pneumonia epidemic of the new coronavirus infection, it has been decided to suspend passenger traffic on the road between the main urban area and the far suburban counties and far suburban counties from January 30. And chartered passenger transportation, and start emergency transportation.

                            What about the main city of Chongqing under the epidemic?

                            Longhu Times Street is located in Yuzhong District, Chongqing City. As a super-large commercial complex, it used to be one of the most popular places for young people to punch and gather in Chongqing's main urban area.

                            On the afternoon of February 2nd, the reporter saw at the scene that the Longhu Times Sky Street had all been closed at this time, more like a mini version of a quiet and empty city. At the major entrances and exits of Tian Street, a piece of "warm reminder" was posted. : Closed from February 2nd to 9th.

                            At the main entrance of Hall A facing the road, the two young people were looking through the glass wall to the interior of the shopping mall in Tian Street, and left without much pause.

                            Chongqing Metro Line 1 is located at Youyi Road Station and directly connects to Hall A of Longhu Times Street. The convenient traffic conditions are also one of the important reasons for the prosperity of this commercial complex. Today, the exit of the subway station next to Hall A has been closed.

                            Chongqing Rail Transit Group issued a notice on the official website, starting from 12:00 on January 31, closing part of the entrances and exits of the station, which involved 54 stations, and shortened the operating time of the entire network; and from February 1, it involves rails. A total of 5 stations on lines 1, 2, and 3 have also been temporarily closed.

                            In fact, just in the evening of February 1, Chongqing introduced a number of other traffic control measures in the main city area. For example, since February 3, the total number of cruising taxis in the main city area has been reduced to 6,000. All network-appointed taxis are temporarily suspended; the total number of bus lines in the main urban area has been reduced to 200, and the bus capacity has been reduced to 1,000. At the same time, body temperature testing has been carried out. Those whose temperature exceeds 37.3 ? C are not allowed to board.

                            However, the reporter observed that on the main road with sparse pedestrians and vehicles, there were still three empty taxis passing slowly; while on the medical school road on the other side of Longhu Times Street, an empty taxi Buses also galloped away.
                            The state of the industry during the anti-epidemic period

                            On weekdays, there are a steady stream of takeaway food delivery cyclists next to the Times Street neighborhood on Times Street. Today, only a few sparse delivery staff are waiting here. However, most of the restaurants in the community are still not open. There is only one diner in a small noodle restaurant, and two other young people are also ordering food.

                            Times Square Street A, a Guangzhou tea restaurant has opened, but it is not open. Staff told reporters that it will not be allowed to officially open until February 10. The contents of a display board hanging at the entrance of the tea restaurant showed that the shop delivered free masks to customers who arrived at the shop. The staff told reporters that once they are officially open, disposable masks will be delivered to customers who eat. There are also a few non-disposable masks available for sale in the store, but the price is 35 yuan / piece.

                            Masks are naturally one of the concerns of the people during the epidemic. In Times Street, many pharmacies are listed directly at the door. Tips: This shop has no masks and alcohol is available for sale. However, the reporter also found that many pharmacies have actually changed their mask sales strategy. Pharmacy staff asked reporters to scan the code to join the WeChat group, and the pharmacy will release news in the group when the masks arrive. One of the pharmacy staff even told reporters that a batch of masks will come later, but they will not be sold in the store, but directly in the WeChat group. The price of the masks is 30 yuan / piece. The two WeChat groups joined by the reporter show that there are hundreds of people in the group.

                            It is worth mentioning that despite the scarcity of people, the reporter found that the blood donation car parked around the A street of Times Street is still there. The medical staff inside the car told reporters that there are very few people donating blood in this situation. However, the staff of the Chongqing Blood Center also told reporters that although the current epidemic has some impact on blood donation and recruitment, blood donation vehicles and blood donation are still carried out 365 days a year.
                            Paper towels in the community elevator

                            Unlike the deserted outdoors, the community as a safe harbor for residents also reveals a serious atmosphere.

                            There are 4 entrances in a residential area next to Longhu Times Street. However, in order to deal with the pneumonia epidemic of the new coronavirus infection, only one entrance is open in the community, and it must be proved that residents in the community can enter, and there are staff at the entrance Take a temperature measurement for those entering the community. In this case, the delivery person can only deliver the takeaway to the gate of the community, and the orderer needs to go to pick it up by himself.

                            The management and control of the community seems to have been gradually upgraded in recent days.

                            A resident in the district told reporters that the staff of the street office came to check the registered resident information two days ago, and the district elevator was also equipped with paper towels yesterday for pressing the elevator button.

                            The staff of the community property told reporters that there are currently fewer residents in the community. According to his understanding, there should be no suspected or confirmed patients for the time being, and the epidemic prevention work is not so stressful.

                            Because this neighborhood is close to the lively Longhu Times Street and adjacent to Chongqing Medical University, it has a good geographical location, so many office workers and college students rent here. But unlike the usual hustle and bustle, the community at this moment is extremely quiet, and it is difficult to find people.

                            Residents in the small area usually purchase living materials at Longhu Times Street.

                            At present, although the entire Times Street has been closed, Super Species, New Century Department Store and Yonghui Supermarket are still open. Compared with the super-species, there are fewer people, but there are still many people in the New Century Department Store and Yonghui Supermarket who are making purchases.

                            "Daily Economic News" reporter saw at Yonghui Supermarket that currently customers need to wear a mask to enter. In Yonghui Supermarket, all kinds of vegetables, grains, oils, meats and other supplies are abundant, and the varieties are abundant, and the prices have not seen a significant fluctuation.

                            In fact, the reporter noticed that throughout Yonghui Supermarket, the customers who came were mainly purchasing the above-mentioned food materials, and even some staff of Yonghui Supermarket were also doing some food materials purchasing themselves. Supermarket radio broadcasts in a loop: Yonghui Supermarket operates normally during the Spring Festival.
