    "Originally, our domestic sewage treatment system had ultraviolet disinfection at the outlet of the water. Now we add sodium hypochlorite to the front end to add a dosage of 0.3mg / L, so that the residence time to the outlet is about 1.2 hours, and strictly implement the first-level A discharge. Standard. "

    "Whether it is during an extraordinary period such as the epidemic or during normal times, it is the most important thing for urban sewage treatment plants to always ensure that the effluent is qualified and free from problems."

    Strictly observe the exit and discharge at ease. This is the unanimous answer obtained by reporters when interviewing the directors of several municipal sewage treatment plants.

    At present, it is unclear whether the new coronavirus will be transmitted through the fecal-oral method, but it cannot be taken lightly. On February 1, the General Office of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment issued the "Notice on Doing a Good Job in the Supervision of Medical Sewage and Urban Sewage in Pneumonia Outbreaks of New Coronavirus Infection" (Shuihan Han [2020] No. 52). The notification requires the deployment of medical sewage and urban sewage supervision. Urban sewage treatment plants should be urged to strengthen their disinfection work to ensure that the effluent fecal coliform counts meet the relevant discharge standards and prevent the spread of new coronavirus through feces and sewage.

    At present, the epidemic is the basic public service that guarantees the normal operation of society and the last line of defense for water environmental protection. Sewage treatment plants in the epidemic area are waiting to prevent the virus from spreading again through sewage.

    Ensure the normal and stable operation of the treatment plant Pay close attention to changes in water volume, strengthen water quality monitoring, and ensure stable operation

    "In the face of a major epidemic, ensuring the normal and stable operation of the treatment plant is the top priority." Many urban sewage treatment plant officials said frankly that the outbreak was coincident with the Spring Festival holiday, the flow of people was large and irregular, and the amount of sewage fluctuated accordingly. . Sewage treatment plants face various adverse factors such as rapid changes in influent water quality, inadequate carbon sources, poor biodegradability, and low air temperature. The risk of balanced control of the system is greatly increased.

    Professor Wang Hongchen from the School of the Environment, Renmin University of China suggested that sewage treatment plants should pay close attention to changes in water volume and timely invest in facilities and equipment that match the water volume to ensure stable operation. Both the "small horse cart" or "large horse cart" are not conducive to stability. run.

    "Currently, public places and households often use chlorine-containing disinfectants to prevent and control epidemics. At the same time, because most sewage treatment plants use biological treatment processes, the presence of excessive residual chlorine in sewage may reduce or inhibit the activity of activated sludge. Activity affects the normal operation of biological treatment units. Special attention should be paid to small town sewage treatment plants that receive more medical sewage. "Wang Hongchen pointed out that biological treatment units are not only the core link for removing black and odorous pollutants, but also removal and killing. In the most important process of destroying or inhibiting pathogenic microorganisms, all measures must be taken to ensure the stable operation of aerobic biological treatment.

    The reporter learned from Huzhou Zhonghuan Water Affairs Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Group Co., Ltd. that when the fight against the epidemic was launched, the company's upstream sewage companies entered the stage of production reduction and production stoppage. As well as various unfavorable factors such as low temperature, the risk of balanced control of the system has been greatly increased. The main indicators of effluent such as total nitrogen, total phosphorus, and ammonia nitrogen are under greater pressure. After the announcement of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, the company further increased the work requirements, strengthened the process adjustment, accelerated the response speed, increased the production material reserve, and achieved precise control.

    Peng Ruchu, general manager of Huzhou Zhonghuan Water Affairs Co., Ltd., said that the company has further strengthened water quality monitoring, accurately adjusted processes, improved anti-virus effects, and stored production materials. "We monitor or encrypt the monitoring of some key indicators. In order to prevent the increase of the residual chlorine in the water from affecting the biochemical system, the company urgently deploys the purchase of residual chlorine kits to detect the residual chlorine in the water; track and grasp the impact of residual chlorine on the sludge activity "Intensify the detection of sludge activity, and closely observe the stability of the system by combining observation under the microscope with on-site visual inspection."

    In terms of further precise adjustment of the process, the company increased the concentration of sludge in the biological pond and increased the number of microorganisms to improve the biochemical effect in response to low winter temperatures and insufficient microbial activity. This measure not only has a significant effect on the treatment of key indicators such as total nitrogen and ammonia nitrogen, but also prevents the possible residual chlorine problems.

    Wang Hongchen also pointed out that, under the premise of stable operation of the sewage biological treatment unit, the disinfection unit should maintain normal operation, and the effluent water quality strictly implements the requirements of hygienic indicators in the Pollutant Discharge Standard for Urban Sewage Treatment Plants (GB18918-2002). There is no special The situation does not require excessive doses of disinfectant.

    Professor Li Ji of Jiangnan University also believes that, at the moment, there is no clear standard, at least the first-level A standard must be implemented. "Don't cut corners. The virus has no cell wall. Chlorine and alcohol disinfection are effective."

    Some experts also suggested that disinfection is an important guarantee for killing pathogenic microorganisms and reducing the risk of water-borne diseases during water treatment. The drainage industry must consider how to develop more effective disinfection technology, analyze the technical control of urban sewage treatment plants for the effective control of virus transmission through the sewage, how to make the discharge of sewage for water supply and drainage completely harmless, improve the safety of urban sewage treatment, and realize Discharge with confidence.

    Initiate a wartime emergency support mechanism. Strengthen disinfection management to ensure maximum elimination of viruses and pathogenic microorganisms in sewage.

    In Wuhan, Hubei, facing the severe situation of the epidemic, Wuhan Water Affairs Group promptly and quickly activated the wartime emergency protection mechanism to ensure the normal operation of 10 sewage treatment plants in the urban area and the sewage treatment standards were discharged.

    In Huzhou, Zhejiang, in order to ensure the effluent disinfection effect, Huzhou Zhonghuan Water Affairs increased the number of fecal coliforms from once a week to once a day. In order to strictly control the effluent disinfection effect, the sodium hypochlorite dosing point was moved forward by adjusting the process to extend the disinfection contact time, and the sodium hypochlorite dosing amount was increased from the usual 5mg / L to 10mg / L. The number of effluent fecal coliforms was controlled from less than 1000 / L to less than 200 / L. After detection on January 25, the number of fecal coliforms has remained at about 100 / L. The index is significantly better than the level A emission standard.

    In Chongqing, Chongqing Central Investment Group operates 1,191 township sewage treatment facilities in Chongqing, with a total designed processing capacity of 774,000 cubic meters per day. After the outbreak, based on the characteristics of small scale and wide distribution of sewage treatment facilities in towns and villages, three aspects of work, including strengthening effluent disinfection, strengthening personal protection, and strengthening self-isolation.

    First Capital shares nearly 10,000 employees to adhere to the front line, compile the “Emergency Work Plan for Preventing and Controlling New Coronavirus Epidemic Situations in Operation Projects”, scientifically guide the production process of hundreds of sewage treatment plants, and strengthen emergency measures such as increasing the amount of disinfectants or supplementing investment to strengthen oxidants. Disinfection to ensure maximum elimination of viruses and pathogenic microorganisms in sewage.

    The major regions of Beijing Enterprises Water Affairs established regional epidemic prevention and control leading groups and issued prevention and control work plans to strengthen the disinfection management of sewage treatment plants to ensure the effectiveness of disinfection treatment, maintain the duration and intensity of disinfection, and add sodium hypochlorite to strengthen disinfection if necessary. . At the same time, increase the frequency of detection of incoming and outgoing water, timely grasp the production data, and adjust the process in time according to the test results; strengthen the inspection of equipment and facilities, especially the inspection of disinfection process equipment, to ensure that the pathogenic microorganism indicators meet national standards and ensure the quality of the effluent water Safety.

    Beijing Drainage Group strengthened the inspection of the quality of the inlet and outlet water of the urban sewage treatment plant, adopted composite disinfection measures, and did a good job in the disinfection of the effluent of 11 reclaimed water plants to ensure that the quality of the effluent was up to standard. The Group has strengthened the follow-up investigation of the operation of the sewage treatment facilities of designated hospitals, isolated hotels and related units, strengthened the investigation of the surrounding drainage pipe network, and followed up to ensure epidemic prevention.

    Ensuring that sewage treatment plants perform their proper anti-epidemic functions. Increase the level of protection in the workplace. Pay attention to the supply of anti-epidemic materials and supplies at the sewage treatment plant.

    In order to ensure the normal operation of urban sewage treatment plants and ensure the innocuous treatment of sewage generated daily, this is the hard work of hundreds of thousands of front-line operators in their posts.

    The transmission pathways and fate mechanisms of new coronaviruses are not completely clear at present, but most pathogens can usually be transmitted in the sewer, and there is a possibility of transmission through aerosol in a certain space. Therefore, strengthening the safety protection of on-site operators of sewage treatment plants has become a top priority.

    It is understood that suspended solid particles in sewage may provide some protection to the virus, so the viability of the virus in polluted water bodies is enhanced. In the process of sewage treatment, water vapor is generated on the surface of many unsealed treatment facilities to form aerogels, and aerogels can also become parasitic places for pathogenic microorganisms, including viruses and bacteria. If the protective measures are not enough, during the inspection, inspection, sampling, testing, etc., the probability of being infected by front-line employees of the sewage treatment plant is higher than that of ordinary people.

    Wang Hongchen suggested that the operators of each post of the sewage treatment plant should wear protective equipment such as masks and gloves according to the basic requirements, and wash them in time after the operation. Special attention should be paid to sewage pumping stations and pre-treatment units such as grills and grit chambers (especially aerated grit chambers) are high-risk places in sewage treatment plants. The protection level should be improved when patrolling or operating in these places In addition to masks and gloves, you must wear goggles. When entering a closed pretreatment workshop for a long time operation, it is recommended to wear protective clothing and wear a respirator.

    Some experts also suggest that frontline employees can be protected from virus infection through engineering measures. For example, install forced exhaust equipment in closed workshops to force the air to flow; add protective covers in front of equipment prone to sewage splashes (grids, sand-water separators, dehydrators, etc.); increase the power of deodorizing fans, When negative pressure is formed, microorganisms cannot stay and accumulate. Try to avoid installing closed facilities on the biological aeration tank, and install large deodorizing ventilation equipment for the installed closed thermal insulation facilities to maintain air flow on the aeration tank.

    In view of the fact that some cities have not included sewage treatment plants in the key supply system of epidemic prevention supplies, and the sewage treatment plants have difficulties in purchasing pharmaceuticals and protective supplies, Wang Hongchen called for the epidemic prevention command department to pay attention to the supply of sewage treatment plants' supplies and supplies to ensure the supply System to ensure that sewage treatment plants play their due role in epidemic prevention.

    The reporter learned from Huzhou Zhonghuan Water Affairs that the company has done a good job in personal protection and comprehensive elimination of plant areas. All employees must wear masks, and goggles and gloves are required for those who may be in direct contact with sewage sludge, such as laboratories and sludge dewatering workshops. Strengthen the maintenance and calibration of the entire factory's electronic testing instruments, ensure the accuracy of the equipment, play the role of electronic monitoring methods, control the number of manual inspections and testing, and reduce personnel exposure to sewage. In addition, we will strengthen the killing work in the office area and the production area, and kill the laboratory, sludge dewatering workshop, central control room and other important areas twice a day.

      Peking University Guanghua Peng Siqing: Concerned about new vulnerable groups emerging under the impact of the epidemic

      The outbreak of the new coronavirus has brought a great impact on the normal operation of Chinese society, and the lives of almost everyone have been affected. It should be noted that some people suffer more severe shocks, face great difficulties in life or business, or psychological pressure. It is difficult to get out of the predicament by relying solely on their own strength, and they need the sympathy and support of all sectors of society. They are special difficult groups emerging under the impact of the epidemic. Although this difficult state may only be temporary, if there is no timely help and support, the social consequences caused by the impact of the epidemic may be long-term. With the epidemic continuing, companies returning to work, migrant workers moving into cities, and crowds gathering, related issues are even more pressing. Proceeding from the development concept of taking the people as the center and continuously enhancing the sense of gain, happiness, and security of the people, all sectors of society need to attach great importance and work hard to address the needs of these "temporary difficult groups".

      From an academic perspective, the "temporary difficult groups" emerging under the impact of the epidemic have obvious "fragility" and are a "quasi-vulnerable group."

      Social vulnerable groups is a rich concept. Economists, political scientists, jurists, and sociologists have given very different definitions from different perspectives. From the perspective of social policies, the urban and rural poor, the laid-off, the unemployed, the disabled, the migrant workers who lack social security, and the elderly who need to be taken care of are usually regarded as vulnerable groups. Here, we understand the disadvantaged group as a group of people who are more vulnerable in social life, difficult to resolve the pressure caused by social problems like normal people, or who are in a vulnerable and vulnerable position in safeguarding their legitimate rights and interests. In this sense, disadvantaged groups are relative and scene-oriented. Under certain conditions, some people who had lived normally or even "strong in life" may suddenly be in a vulnerable position. For example, victims of natural disasters overnight It may become a vulnerable group. In addition, in the face of unreasonable regulations and rich hatred, some entrepreneurs once felt that they were a vulnerable group.

      Unlike the Wenchuan earthquake, the impact of this epidemic originating from Wuhan, Hubei, on social life is manifold. Earthquake disasters unfold in limited time and space. The disaster area is local, and the duration of the disaster is short (even aftershocks will not last long). This pure natural disaster often evokes sympathy and enhances cohesion among groups. . However, after the outbreak of an infectious disease, it can be expanded globally in space, and it is difficult to determine when it will end in time. The infected person is not only the victim, but also the source of the infection. People are sympathetic and afraid of patients or suspected patients. Not only sympathy, but also misunderstanding, suspicion and even hostility, some bad social emotions and simple and rough management methods caused by the epidemic may cause obvious damage to the original social relations, bring about temporary social differentiation, and lead to several types of " The emergence of “temporary difficult groups” or quasi-vulnerable groups. From the social news in recent days, we can sort out the following groups:

      1) "Outbreak patients" group: groups of people infected with the new coronavirus and their families. They must not only endure physical torture and psychological panic caused by the disease, but also face possible social exclusion and discrimination. The public's panic about the disease may translate into alienation and even hostility towards these patients. Even after recovery, alienation of people around you may continue for some time.

      2) "People in epidemic area": ​​The big epidemic area is Hubei (especially Wuhan), and the small epidemic area is the community or unit where virus infection cases are found. For example, WeChat spreads a resident with infection cases in each district of Beijing. Although there are only one or two cases in the list of communities, the people in these communities are virtually labeled as "dangerous people." The vast majority of this group are healthy, but they have been labeled because of geographical reasons. In addition, some of them may be required to be separated from their homes due to strict control measures. Noticeable signs were posted on the doorsteps of people in the affected areas. In extraordinary times, these measures are excusable, but their side effects require attention and follow-up measures.

      3) "Limited persons" group: In order to prevent and control, some localities adopted regional control measures, but in the implementation, they were simplified into closed cities and closed roads, which made some people who were in the field and returned to work after the Spring Festival. Encountered the difficulty of not being able to enter the city without a local hukou, and not being able to enter the rental community because the head of household was not able to enter. They may have decent work and stable income at the place of work. They were originally local builders and taxpayers, but were treated differently because they did not have local hukou or house books, and were treated as marginalized.

      4) The "maskless" group: Overnight, masks became the most sought-after products, and online stores and physical stores were out of stock. Some people were unprepared at the beginning of the epidemic, and it was too late to remember to buy a mask. Now is the peak period of the epidemic. Without masks, it is almost impossible to go out. Not only do you worry about yourself, but also attract other people's eyes. Public transport in many places has refused to take the maskless people.

      5) Groups of business owners who are at risk of business failure: The epidemic has caused some companies to operate bleakly, and catering, tourism, hotel, entertainment and other service companies have closed down on a large scale. Human resources and social security departments in some places require enterprises to pay normal wages to employees who cannot return to work, further increasing the burden on enterprises. Some SMEs may eventually fail due to a broken capital chain, and their operators are worried.

      6) Worker groups at risk of unemployment: The failure of SMEs will inevitably lead to unemployment for ordinary workers. After the income source is interrupted, life difficulties will be inevitable, and the poor may increase.

      The epidemic has spread widely, lasted a long time, and affected a large number of people. Therefore, the above-mentioned six "temporary difficult groups" are not small in scale. If their difficulties cannot be taken seriously and resolved in time, it will not only affect their own quality of life and happiness, but may also cause a series of social problems, and may even affect social harmony and social stability.

      Based on the above analysis, we call on relevant departments and all sectors of society to attach great importance to the difficulties and pressures brought by the impact of the epidemic on specific groups, implement the core values ​​of socialism such as fairness, harmony, civilization and friendliness, actively guide social public opinion, and promote intergroup communication and mutual understanding. Take practical measures to be kind to the victims, to the people in the disaster-stricken areas, to be kind to the “foreigners”, to be kind to the people in need, and try their best to support the SME operators and workers who are in trouble, and develop effective social policies to dilute the group differentiation and dissolve the possible groups. Conflict. In the process of preventing and controlling the epidemic, various regions have adopted very systematic and meticulous action plans, which have achieved obvious results. If we can learn from this approach and formulate specific action plans to help the above six groups, we will be able to overcome difficulties and resolve contradictions. It is gratifying that some local governments have adopted a series of effective measures to help temporarily difficult groups. For example, the Suzhou Municipal Government has issued ten policy opinions to support small and medium-sized enterprises to tide over difficulties together; the Heshan District Committee of Hebi City has proposed “isolation and no alienation, treat returnees in Wuhan like their loved ones” and took practical actions. At the same time, we also call on all sectors of the community to work together and actively help. For example, the difficulties of the “maskless” group can be rescued through neighborhood rations and unit rations on the one hand, and on the other hand, calls can be made between friends and relatives and colleagues. Share with each other, between neighbors, and WeChat friends to help.

      We believe that as long as governments at all levels really focus on the people, listen to the voices of the masses, care about the sufferings of the masses, and solve problems for the masses, as long as all sectors of society reach broad consensus and mutual tolerance and support, they will certainly be able to overcome the current difficulties and not only achieve prevention and control. The triumph of the epidemic can turn crisis into opportunity, further promote social harmony and social development, and increase the sense of gain and happiness of the people. If this is the case, the above-mentioned six “new vulnerable groups” are only a temporary existence, and they will be transformed into new forces that love the country more, trust the government, treat people better, and participate more actively in social construction.

        A patient in Tianjin has caused 973 people to be quarantined and seized by Wuqing People's Hospital

        Times amiable 2020/02/07 01:43:00 (UTC) . 9

        CCTV Tianjin February 6 (Reporter Jia Liliang) A reporter learned from a press conference on the prevention and control of pneumonia in a new type of coronavirus infection in Tianjin that one patient was diagnosed in Wuqing District, Tianjin, due to the poor management of the hot diagnosis process. In the end, a total of 973 hospitals were sealed, controlled and isolated.

        At 10 am on February 1st, a patient suffered a fever and cough for one week. He took a network-bound bus to Wuqing from Beichen District and arrived at Wuqing District People's Hospital at 10:32 for a fever clinic.

        The report from Wuqing District showed that during the patient's consultation, the visiting doctor repeatedly asked the epidemiological history for no abnormalities. Both chest radiography and blood routine examination showed bacterial pneumonia. After chest CT examination, he was judged as a general fever patient. Hospitalized in respiratory medicine.

        On the evening of February 3, the Wuqing District Center for Disease Control and Prevention performed a New Crown Virus nucleic acid test on the patient. The result showed a weak positive result at 3:20 on the 4th. The District Center for Disease Control sent the specimen to the City Center for Disease Control for review. Also shown as weakly positive. On February 4th, the experts from the Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention went to the District People's Hospital to guide the patient's prevention and control measures on the spot. In the afternoon, samples were sent to the Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention for nucleic acid testing. The results were negative. On February 5th, the Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention took another sample test. After the test result was positive, the patient was transferred to Haihe Hospital for treatment and became the 70th confirmed case.

        In this course of diagnosis and treatment, no problems can be seen on the surface, but there are actually problems during the operation. Wu Lixiang, member of the Standing Committee of Wuqing District Committee and executive deputy head, admits that the case has three warnings and lessons for the management of fever fever clinics. First, the patient consultation of fever fever clinics must be very cautious, especially the need to be admitted to the general inpatient ward for further treatment. The patient must make a careful decision after consultation with the expert group. The case did not go through expert consultation and case discussion. The second is the Tian's case. After being hospitalized, he was actually admitted to the same ward as his brother. A risk of cross-infection. His elder brother has now undergone three nucleic acid tests, and the results are now negative. He is also being treated in isolation as a close contact with Tian. This treatment method also reveals that the hospital is not vigilant and the operation is not standardized during the diagnosis and treatment process. The third is the consultation of fever patients. If further examination is needed, such as CT and B ultrasound, it must be used with ordinary clinics and clinics. The ward is isolated, and it must not be separated from the protection scope of developing hot clinics.

        In the early morning of February 4, the Wuqing District Prevention and Control Headquarters immediately became highly vigilant when they received a weak positive result from the patient's new crown virus nucleic acid test. The Wuqing District Prevention and Control Command immediately initiated emergency treatment measures: First, in accordance with the highest standards (standards of confirmed cases), the patient's ward and the inpatient building were blocked for the first time, and the district people's hospital was sealed and controlled at 7 am. Second, all contacts were quarantined in strict accordance with the requirements of flow regulation. Among them, 23 medical staff transferred to the Swan Lake Quarantine Medical Observation Point for observation and quarantine at 11 pm on February 4. The third is to strengthen the overall management and control of the hospital, to fully protect all wards and buildings, strictly implement personnel management measures to prevent cross-infection.

        After sorting and in-depth investigation of personnel, the People's Hospital of Wuqing District sorted out 973 isolation and control personnel, of which 739 were transferred to centralized isolation points for observation and isolation, and 234 patients were hospitalized and isolated for treatment.

        At present, the preparation of the centralized medical observation points required by Wuqing District is ready. Under the guidance of epidemiologists, relevant quarantine personnel are being organized for safe transfer one after another.

        There are a total of 3 fever clinics in Wuqing District. After the district people's hospital is closed, there are two fever clinics in Wuqing District Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital and District Second People's Hospital. A total of 40 beds are available. In addition, Wu Qing has renovated the hot district clinic of the original district party school, with a total of 70 beds, which can be put into use at any time, which should be able to meet the needs of fever patients in the district.
        "Safety and security don't just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear."
        -Nelson Mandela

            As of the 6th of this month, Shanghai had reported a total of 45 epidemics. Photo by Xu Mingrui

            China News Network, February 7th (Reporter Chen Jing) 'A series of press conferences on the prevention and control of pneumonia in a new type of coronavirus infection in Shanghai' was held on the 7th.

            Zheng Jin, a spokesman for the Shanghai Municipal Health Committee, said that as of 6th this month, Shanghai had reported a total of 45 epidemic outbreaks, of which 38 were clusters of families and relatives, accounting for 84%.

            It is reported that by 12:00 on the 7th, 277 cases of new coronary pneumonia have been found in Shanghai, and a total of 796 suspected cases have been ruled out. Among the confirmed cases, the oldest is 88 years old and the youngest is only 7 months old. Currently, 228 patients are in stable condition, 8 are in critical condition, 10 are in critical condition, 30 are cured and discharged, and 1 died.

            According to reports, in the clustered epidemic reported in Shanghai, there were 3 cases of unit colleagues, 3 mixed cases (both family, relatives and unit colleagues), and 1 traveler (on the same flight). Zheng Jin revealed that during a family epidemic, fathers, mothers, sons, daughters-in-law, and sisters of the families were diagnosed. Seven grandchildren and their relatives in Hangzhou, as close contacts, were receiving isolation medical observation.

            There are no outsiders in the epidemic prevention and control. Zheng Jin pointed out that during the epidemic, I hope that the public will reduce going out, do not hold family gatherings, and do not go to crowded and closed public places. At the same time, they hope that people in Shanghai can discourage foreign relatives and friends from staying in Shanghai at this stage.

            According to Zheng Jin, Shanghai has deployed medical institutions to further strengthen the medical treatment of fever cases, attach importance to the medical treatment of suspected cases, adhere to the priority of treatment, coordinate medical resources in a timely manner, organize key departments such as breathing and critical illness to enrich the fever, and arrange expert consultations in a timely manner. 3. Visit the clinic and give active treatment. (Finish)

              China News Network Xingtai, February 7 (Zhang Pengxiang, Li Tie hammer) The Office of the Leading Group for the New Crown Pneumonia Epidemic in Xingtai City, Hebei Province revealed on the 7th that Xingtai City was diagnosed with a case that intentionally concealed the facts. At present, the police have opened a case for investigation.

              Patient Liu Moumou, female, 64 years old, from Neiqiu County, Xingtai City. On January 17, five people, including her husband, daughter, son-in-law, and grandson, returned to their home in Neiqiu County in a private car from Hongshan District, Wuhan. On January 18, we went to see the teeth at Wei Shaodong Dental Clinic, Tianyi City, Qiaodong District. On January 31, he was hospitalized in Neiqiu Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital due to asthma. On February 4, due to the worsening of his condition, Xingtai City 120 received the emergency department of Xingtai People's Hospital. During the consultation at Xingtai City and Neiqiu County Hospitals, Liu and his family insisted on denying their Wuhan residence history. Only at about 10 o'clock on February 6th, they were admitted after repeated questioning by medical staff. It has been tested for new coronavirus nucleic acids according to legal procedures. On February 7, Liu Moumou was diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia.

              After the incident, Xingtai City's Office of the Leading Group for New Coronary Pneumonia Epidemic Situation immediately initiated emergency response measures. At 21:00 on the 6th, it was decided to further increase the response and treatment with the highest standards, conduct in-depth and wide-ranging investigations, expand the scope of investigation in a more detailed and stricter manner, and do a good job of detection and protection in close contact with medical staff.

              As of now, 77 close contacts including medical staff have been identified in Xingtai City and Neiqiu County, and all of them have taken centralized isolation measures. The nucleic acid tests have been negative, and further investigation is still underway. Xingtai People's Hospital The emergency room, Neiqiu County Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital, Wei Shaodong Dental Clinic in Qiaodong District, and the village where the patient lived and visited have all been closed and isolated, and measures have been taken to eliminate them. At the same time, the Neiqiu County Public Security Organ has filed an investigation into the patient on suspicion of using dangerous methods to endanger public safety. The patient is being treated in isolation.

              The Office of the Leading Group for the Response to the New Coronary Pneumonia Epidemic in Xingtai City reminded that emergency response measures have been fully launched and continuously deepened, and the public need not panic; those who have contacted the patient should actively cooperate with various preventive and control measures taken by the local government. Suspicious symptoms such as fever should be reported immediately. At the same time, the public is urged once again not to conceal their residence, travel history, contact history and health status. If they deliberately conceal and cause consequences, they will bear criminal responsibility; if they are found to have the above circumstances, they should promptly complain to the relevant departments.

Before leaving, he introduced his 'anti-epidemic experience' to medical staff and reporters.

                        'To treat this disease, one must trust the doctor and actively cooperate with the treatment; the other is to eat well, which is very important.'

                        It is understood that the old man who was born in Shandong in November 1928 was a veteran soldier who lived in Yichang for a long time. He developed fever, cough, and fatigue on January 19; he was admitted to the Third People's Hospital of Yichang for an unexplained lung infection on January 23; and he was diagnosed with pneumonia of a new coronavirus on January 25.

                          Chen Xuting, CCTV reporter: 'We see the graph of the data today. One is that the number of confirmed cases nationwide is increasing, but the number of newly confirmed cases is decreasing. From February 4 to February 6, this What does the data tell us? Is it proof that the inflection point has arrived? '

                          Academician Zhong Nanshan: 'I can't fully prove that the inflection point has arrived. I estimate that the inflection point will have a few days, because the most important thing is the new cases. This is an important indicator. So it seems that the new cases have not increased significantly. Good thing. But does it mean that the inflection point has arrived, I am afraid it is too early. I think it should not increase the number of new cases, but Wuhan may be different from other places. Because Wuhan is going all out to do it now Good discovery and isolation work, of course, other places also need to do a good job of early detection and isolation. Now it seems that the early detection and isolation work has begun to take effect, my view is this. '

                          CCTV reporter Chen Xuting: 'In addition, is there any progress in drug development?'

                          Academician Zhong Nanshan: 'Some medicines are being tested, and the results can't fully explain the problem. Some medicines have signs, I think I can only say so. Now the most important thing for patients with severe illness, especially critical illness, is life support. I hope they can I have overcome the difficulties of being infected with the virus. Now that the drug is definitely being observed, I hope that the Chinese medicine can prevent and treat early patients. We do not expect Chinese medicine to have a strong antiviral effect, but if it can improve the symptoms, it may It will help patients' early recovery. '

                          CCTV reporter Chen Xuting: 'For frontline ambulance workers, how do they protect their health and safety while helping patients?'

                          Academician Zhong Nanshan: 'First of all, it is a very standard protection, because we have lessons in this matter; it is also recommended that medical staff in various places should have shifts, because excessive fatigue can easily lead to more opportunities and susceptibility.'
