          Healthy Wuhan residents say they were forced into mass coronavirus quarantine, risking infection
          By Nectar Gan, Lily Lee and David Culver, CNN
          Published Feb 24, 2020 6:22:05 AM

          CNN) – Three weeks ago, Lisa Wang was fighting a high fever when she was turned away from an overflowing hospital in Wuhan, the central Chinese city mired in a deadly coronavirus crisis.

          A chest scan showed her lungs were infected, but she couldn't get treated for the novel coronavirus she likely had because there weren't enough beds at the Wuhan Third Hospital, a doctor told her. Instead, she was given medication and instructed to self-quarantine at home.

          But on Tuesday, despite having recovered from the illness and been given the all-clear, the 30-year-old lawyer said she was forced into a makeshift quarantine center at a technology park – putting her at risk of cross-infection with hundreds of other patients warehoused in the bare-bones facility.

          "They couldn't provide me with a hospital when I was sick. Now when I'm recovered, they forced me into one," Wang, who asked to use a pseudonym for fear of repercussions, told CNN over the phone...

              Guangdong has discharged feces test positive again! These points should be paid attention to by experts

              Since the occurrence of new crown pneumonia, the characteristics of this sly guy of new crown virus have not been fully grasped in the medical field. Earlier, Canadian medical experts first discovered cases of positive stool testing after patients with new coronary pneumonia recovered from discharge. Some provinces and cities in China also have a similar situation.

              "It should be said that during the follow-up of discharged patients, some individuals had similar situations. But it is clear that through the imaging examination of these follow-up discharged patients, we found that the patients' lung disease was improved. " Cai Weiping, an infectious disease expert and director of the infection department of the Eighth People's Hospital of Guangzhou, said. Anal swab nucleic acid test positive for discharged patients in GuangzhouNo increase in lung inflammation With the in-depth treatment of new coronary pneumonia, China's clinical treatment of pneumonia in patients with new coronary pneumonia (trial version 6) has very clear requirements for patients from admission, classification and discharge standards.

              "It should be said that all designated hospitals nationwide, including our city eight hospitals, are strictly implemented in accordance with this discharge standard. For example, the requirements of temperature and symptoms, such as nucleic acid tests at least twice a day, and then It is necessary to combine the obvious changes in lung imaging. " Cai Weiping said that with the increasing number of discharged patients in Guangzhou, the hospital has also followed up discharged patients and set up a special follow-up clinic for discharged patients. Nucleic acid was detected once on 7 days and 14 days, and there were both throat swabs and anal swabs. The national diagnosis and treatment plan does not require anal swabs to check for the new coronavirus nucleic acid, and Guangdong took the lead in doing so in order to be more secure. Follow-up found that among the patients discharged from Guangzhou, there were also a few patients who turned positive for anal swab nucleic acid detection after discharge. "It may be that there are still viruses or viral gene fragments in the discharged patients . It is not certain whether they are infectious. New crown virus is a new pathogen, and we still have a perfect process to understand. "It must be emphasized is that discharged patients during follow-up done at the same time increase lung imaging, CT suggest that inflammation in their lungs improved, we have not seen a further increase. This phenomenon cannot be considered a relapse.

              Positive stool nucleic acidTransmission is better cut off

              Cai Weiping said that a positive anal swab indicates that there is a viral gene fragment or virus in the stool sample of the patient. At present, it is believed that fecal-oral transmission of neocoronavirus is possible, but the corresponding intervention is still easy to operate. "Among the many transmission routes, a single fecal-mouth transmission disease is better controlled. For example, wash your hands frequently, cover the toilet lid and flush the toilet, etc.
              " On the other hand, rehabilitation patients should strictly follow the doctor's order after discharge , strictly adhere to home observation for 14 days, achieve ventilation in the room, pay attention to hygiene, standardize hand washing, do self-health monitoring, and follow-up and follow-up visits as required.

              Discharge standards for discharged patients need to meet the following 4 conditions:

              1. The body temperature returns to normal for more than 3 days;

              2. Respiratory symptoms improved significantly;

              3. Pulmonary imaging showed significant improvement in absorption of acute exudative lesions;

              4. Negative nucleic acid test for two consecutive respiratory specimens (sampling interval at least 1 day).

              Notes after discharge:

              1. The designated hospitals should make good contact with the primary medical institutions where the patients live, share medical records, and promptly push the discharged patients' information to the patient's jurisdiction or residential committees and primary medical institutions.

              2. After the patient is discharged, due to the low immune function in the recovery period and the risk of infection with other pathogens, it is recommended that the self-health monitoring should be continued for 14 days, wearing a mask, and living in a well-ventilated single room conditionally to reduce the family Keep close contact, share meals and meals, do good hand hygiene, and avoid going out.

              3. It is recommended to regularly follow up and return to the hospital after discharge.

In the early stages of the epidemic, he had been sitting in a respiratory clinic and had conducted consultations in Hanchuan and other places.
