    On September 10, 6 people were found to have tested positive for nucleic acid in Fengting Town, Xianyou County, Putian City, Fujian Province. On the afternoon of September 11, a press conference held by the Press Office of the Putian Municipal People's Government informed that as of 4 pm on the 11th, a total of 24 cases of nucleic acid positive were reported in this round of the epidemic in Putian, including 6 confirmed cases and 18 asymptomatic infections.
    The outbreak is fierce. Experts have determined that the source is suspected to be Lin Moujie, a Singaporean immigrant. Lin Moujie infected his son who was in elementary school, and his son also infected his classmates. All four members of the classmate’s family were infected. But the chain of transmission is far from over. In the expanded nucleic acid test in Fengting Town, 18 more cases were found to be positive.
    What has aroused the attention of netizens across the country is that Lin Moujie was quarantined for 21 days after entering the country, during which 9 nucleic acid test results were all negative. However, all this still made Xianyou "break the defense".
    Many netizens wondered whether the “14+7” quarantine of overseas returnees is still not insured?
    A recurrence of Xianyou cases after 576 days
    Fengting Town, Xianyou County is located on the southeast coast, bordering Jieshan Town in Quangang District of Quanzhou City and Jiaowei Town in Xianyou County. It has a population of about 100,000. Most areas are hilly areas and are mainly planted with fruit trees. At the same time, Xianyou Railway Station is also located in Fengting Town.
    Mr. Yang (surnamed Hua) rented a storefront in Xiufeng Village, Fengting Town, and opened a shop selling electronic products. On the morning of the 10th, Mr. Yang connected to more than a dozen phone calls from the government, village committee, relatives and friends, and informed him that Xiufeng Village had been closed due to an epidemic. A friend also filmed him a video of medical staff in protective clothing walking by when the cordon was pulled up at the door of his store.
    The sudden epidemic interrupted Mr. Yang’s business plan. “For me, nothing has changed except for not being able to go out.” Mr. Yang said that in recent years, because of his considerable income, he bought a house in the town and is currently with his wife. Takes his 4-year-old son to live in isolation in the town. However, Mr. Yang's parents still live in their hometown in Xiufeng Village, and he is a little worried that it is not convenient for his parents to buy vegetables and cook.
    In Mr. Yang's memory, the last time this happened was last year.
    According to information on the official website of the Putian Municipal Health Commission, as of 24:00 on February 12, 2020, the cumulative number of confirmed cases of pneumonia with new coronavirus infection reported in Xianyou County has increased from 4 to 5. Since then, the results of 5 cases in Xianyou County have been maintained for 576 days. Until September 10, 2021, a new local confirmed case was added. In the notice issued by the Putian City Health and Construction Commission on September 11, Xianyou had a cumulative number of confirmed cases. There are 6 cases.
    The epidemic has spread rapidly. As of 16:00 on September 11, Xianyou County has reported a total of 24 positive cases of new coronavirus nucleic acid, including 6 confirmed cases and 18 asymptomatic infections. Xiufeng Village, Gengfeng Village, Jiushe Village, Lanyou Community, and Xiajie Community in Fengting Town, Xianyou County were adjusted to medium-risk areas, and Putou Community and Linshan Village, Fengting Town, Xianyou County were high-risk areas.
    In addition, according to the Fujian Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the 19 relevant cases of the epidemic, the results were preliminarily determined to be a Delta strain, and gene sequencing is in progress.
    Source case remains infected after 21 days of isolation
    According to news from the Putian City Press Conference on Epidemic Prevention and Control Work on the evening of September 10, experts have determined that one of the parents of a student who tested positive for nucleic acid, Lin Mojie, is suspected to be the source of the epidemic, that is, the chain of infection caused by immigrants from Singapore.
    According to the current investigation, Lin Moujie took Xiamen Airlines flight MF852 to enter from Xiamen Airport from Singapore on August 4, and after being quarantined at a designated hotel in Xiamen for 14 days, he was transferred to the centralized quarantine point in Xianyou County on August 19 to continue the concentrated quarantine. (All three nucleic acid tests were negative on August 19, 22, and 24), and home health monitoring will be implemented on August 26.
    Lin Moujie went through the "14+7" quarantine and multiple nucleic acid tests, and finally caused infection. This has caused many people to wonder, is the "14+7" quarantine policy not enough?
    On September 11, the Press Office of the Putian Municipal People’s Government held a press conference on epidemic prevention and control. At the meeting, the relevant person in charge said in response to reporters that the imported cases outside Singapore were quarantined for 21 days. During the period, the results of 9 nucleic acid tests were all Negative, 1 serum test was also negative, the nucleic acid test result was positive on September 10, and the virus incubation period was long.
    In this regard, some netizens suggested that the quarantine period of overseas returnees should be appropriately extended, or nucleic acid tests should be performed regularly after the quarantine is lifted to ensure that overseas imports will not cause proliferation.
    According to the Guangdong News Network, Cai Weiping, an infectious disease expert at the Eighth Hospital Affiliated to Guangzhou Medical University, disagrees with the extension of the entry quarantine period: “The longer the quarantine period, the safer it is, but the cost performance is lower and lower.” He said that extending the quarantine period is bound to Increasing the cost of social operations is also a kind of harm to the isolation and observation objects. However, after the quarantine is lifted, health monitoring must be continued.
    On June 25, Zhong Nanshan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, was interviewed by the media. When asked "whether the '14+7' isolation observation period needs to be extended", he believed that the isolation period does not need to be extended. He said that the incubation period of most of the new coronaviruses is not long. If the isolation and observation time when entering China is further extended, the harm will outweigh the benefits, and it will bring more difficulties to our communication and exchanges with foreign countries. We can strengthen the frequency of health monitoring for immigrants from high-risk countries during the isolation period. This is an effective method.

    101,000 people in Fengting Town will be tested for nucleic acid
    According to the Beijing News, Lin Moujie once went to the home of his relatives in Jieshan Town, Quangang, and his personal information as a close contact was leaked. This led to frequent harassing calls, and some even called him specifically to scold him.
    The Jimu News reporter learned from the Fengting Township government that the local area will conduct nucleic acid tests for all 101,000 people in 24 villages in Fengting Town. Nucleic acid tests will be carried out overnight in many areas. Mr. Yang will conduct nucleic acid tests at 11 p.m. According to the Putian City Epidemic Prevention and Control Press Conference, as of 16:00 on September 11, an expanded nucleic acid test was organized in Fengting Town, and a total of 81,938 samples were collected. 10102 results have been obtained, and 71,836 positive tests and results are yet to be reported.
    Ms. Wang (surnamed Hua), the parent of Putou Primary School students, told JiMu News that she received a notice on the afternoon of the 10th, asking students and a parent to bring all the essentials for centralized isolation. Ms. Wang also said that the students are at a lively and active age. In addition to the hot weather, they don't like to wear masks. The epidemic occurred in the school, and it is very likely that the infection will spread.
    At present, the local area has strictly controlled the entrances of the 1 expressway and 2 provincial highways and national roads entering Fengting Town, 50 checkpoints, and the deployment of public security, traffic and other 200 forces. On September 11, Putian Bus Station issued a notice that all provincial and inter-city shuttle buses will stop operating from that day. Xianyou County Public Transport Company also notified that all public transport vehicles of the company have suspended operation and the time for resumption of operation will be notified separately.
    According to CCTV news, the National Health Commission has sent a working group to Putian City, Fujian Province to guide the handling of the epidemic.
