              1. There's a lot of buzz on the astronomical jump in cases from Hubei on Wednesday -- 14,840 new confirmed cases, almost 10 x compared to a day earlier. New deaths rose to 242, more than double fr day b4. The govt has changed the diagnostic criteria used to confirm cases. More ..

              Replying to
              2. Effectively, this means the govt is giving doctors greater discretion to clinically diagnose patients. Previously, they could only confirm cases with the nucleic acid test kits. But a govt expert said recently these were only 30-40 percent accurate.

              Sui-Lee Wee 黄瑞黎


              3. More crucially, we were interviewing patients, who were showing all the symptoms of the new coronavirus, who said they were tested four to five times before they got a positive result. Li Wenliang, the whistleblower doctor, was one of them.
              Sui-Lee Wee 黄瑞黎


              4. Chinese health experts say this is why there's a change: they now realize that there's a group of patients who only test positive very late with the nucleic acid testing. Because of how transmissible the disease is, they want to include these people as confirmed cases.
              Sui-Lee Wee 黄瑞黎


              5. The point is to isolate these patients quickly and treat them. Doctors are now clinically diagnosing these people with CT scans. The advantage of these scans are they are immediate. Previously, patients had to wait at least two days for their results.
              Sui-Lee Wee 黄瑞黎


              6. Samples had to be transported for hours to the province's relatively few labs. The nucleic acid tests are also dependent on the people sampling these patients. There's room for error. But the disadvantage of using CT scans is that they might not catch people w mild symptoms.

                      What is the number of clinically diagnosed cases in Hubei that includes the number of clinically diagnosed cases for the first time? Expert interpretation

                      CCTV News Client CCTV News Client February 13, 2020 08:52A-A +

                      Today (February 13), the latest epidemic situation released by the Hubei Provincial Health and Health Commission's official website, including the number of clinically diagnosed cases, is announced. The report showed that there were 14,840 new cases of new coronary pneumonia in Hubei Province (including 13332 clinically diagnosed cases).

                      What does a clinically diagnosed case refer to? How is it different from a confirmed case? CCTV reporters exclusively interviewed Tong Zhaohui, an expert from the Central Steering Group and vice president of Beijing Chaoyang Hospital.

                      Why set the level of clinical diagnosis? On February 5, "News 1 + 1", Bai Yansong contacted Wang Chen, president of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, and mentioned this issue.

                      What are clinically diagnosed cases? How is it different from a confirmed case?

                      Tong Zhaohui: The fifth edition of the health and health committee's plan has already raised the issue of clinical diagnosis of cases in Hubei.
                      △ Pneumonitis diagnosis and treatment plan for new type of coronavirus infection (trial version of trial version 5)

                      We also have clinical diagnosis in our daily work. In the usual diagnosis of pneumonia, in fact, two to thirty percent of the etiology depends on clinical seventy to eighty percent of the diagnosis. Therefore, the number of clinically diagnosed cases was increased in Hubei this time. Some time ago, we mainly relied on nucleic acids to diagnose cases, but in fact, most of the suspected cases were based on clinical manifestations: 1. A history of epidemiology; 2. Fever, respiratory cough, and belching symptoms. Then check the clinical characteristics of the physical examination and make a comprehensive diagnosis after CT imaging.

                      Wang Chen: It is necessary to set the grade of clinical diagnosis.

                      Now the ability to detect viral nucleic acid is constantly improving, but the accuracy of different reagents is different. Not all patients can detect nucleic acid positive, so there are a lot of clinical symptoms in the history of epidemiology and contact history. It ’s also like, but patients whose nucleic acid has not been confirmed are now listed as suspected cases. I suggest that such patients in Wuhan should be classified as clinically diagnosed cases because the positive rate of nucleic acid for confirmed patients is only 30. % ~ 50%, so it is necessary to set the level of clinical diagnosis.

                      The circular issued by the official website of the Hubei Provincial Health and Health Commission pointed out that with the deepening of the understanding of new coronavirus pneumonia and the accumulation of experience in diagnosis and treatment, in response to the characteristics of the epidemic situation in Hubei Province, Coronary virus-infected pneumonia diagnosis and treatment plan (trial version 5) adds "clinical diagnosis" to the case diagnosis classification in Hubei Province, so that patients can receive standardized treatment according to confirmed cases as early as possible, and further improve the success rate of treatment. According to the plan, Hubei Province has recently conducted investigations on suspected cases and revised the diagnosis results, and newly diagnosed patients were diagnosed according to the new diagnosis classification.
