Will the Guangzhou epidemic be cleared on the 20th?

Expert: Unblock some areas to release the signal that the epidemic has entered the descending channel

The current round of the Guangzhou epidemic, which broke out on May 21, has been 24 days since today. Although some areas have now been unblocked, the number of new cases has not yet been cleared. According to a report from the Guangzhou Health Commission, between 0:00 and 24:00 on June 14th, there was one newly confirmed case in Guangzhou, but all cases were found in close contacts of previously confirmed patients.

In addition, on the afternoon of June 14, the Guangzhou Municipal Government Information Office held a press conference on epidemic prevention and control. Gu Zhongpeng, deputy director of the Guangzhou Education Bureau, revealed that in accordance with the requirements of epidemic prevention and control, Guangzhou decided to postpone the 2021 high school entrance examination originally scheduled to be held from June 20 to 22 to July. According to reports, there are 491 junior high school students in Guangzhou who signed up for the high school entrance examination this year, with a total of 90,544 high school entrance examination candidates. 156 test sites are planned to be arranged. Regardless of the number of schools involved, the number of test points, the number of candidates, and the number of test administrators, it far exceeds the number of college entrance examinations in the past.

In addition, the Guangzhou epidemic risk level has also been adjusted recently. According to the information released by the Guangzhou Health Commission, No. 3, Ji’an Street, Jixian Road, Yongping Street, Baiyun District, and No. 109, Jixian Road, were adjusted from low-risk areas to medium-risk areas on the 14th. And Haitang Pavilion (Building A, Building B, and Building C) of Nanzhou Mingyuan, Ruibao Street, Haizhu District, Zhonghai Oak Park (Buildings H1, H2, H3, H4) in Shayuan Street, and Jinxiu East District, Jinxiu Peninsula Community, Luopu Street, Panyu District ( 16 buildings, 17 buildings, 18 buildings), adjusted from medium-risk areas to low-risk areas.

The Red Star News reporter checked the “Guangzhou Local Treasures” and learned that as of press time, there are still 2 areas in Guangzhou (Baihedong Street in Liwan District and Zhongnan Street in Liwan District) as high-risk areas, and 15 medium-risk areas.

When will this round of Guangzhou epidemic show a turning point? Professor Ma Wenjun, a member of the Expert Advisory Committee of the Guangdong Preventive Medicine Association, recently wrote an article on the WeChat public account of the Guangdong Preventive Medicine Association: “It is conservatively estimated that the scale of this epidemic should be within 180 cases. It will be cleared before June 20, and the duration will be one. About a month.”

Regarding the above statement, Fu Hua, a professor at the School of Public Health of Fudan University, believes: “Whether it can be completely cleared on the 20th requires more data and epidemiological investigation results to support it. It is too early to give it any time.” Fu Hua believes, When the epidemic has reached an inflection point, an important criterion is whether there will be a new chain of transmission, and whether there will be further infections on the existing chain of transmission. From the current point of view, it is not yet certain whether it will be completely cleared one day.

Fu Hua gave an affirmative answer to the argument that the epidemic has entered a downward path. He believes that at the moment, Guangzhou has unblocked some areas, releasing the trend of basically controlling the epidemic and entering a downward channel. “Although there are still new additions, the number of new additions is decreasing and the transmission chain has been blocked in time. Therefore, it can be judged that the Guangzhou epidemic is well controlled.”

Fu Hua believes that, on the whole, Guangzhou responded to the epidemic in a timely manner, and classified management and control were in place. Under the conditions of high population density and high population density in Guangzhou, the timely implementation of blockade management has played a very important role in containing the epidemic. In addition to the existing domestic prevention and control experience, it has also played an effective role in controlling the epidemic in Guangzhou.

As for the reasons why some areas can be unblocked, Fu Hua pointed out that this is based on a number of considerations. “The city still needs to develop. After a comprehensive assessment, the release of the low-risk areas will not have much impact.” He believes that the current unblocking is for safety reasons on the one hand, and on the other hand to ensure the restoration of urban operations. The residents’ work and life return to normal considerations.

Based on the rapid spread and short incubation period of the mutant virus spreading in this round of epidemics, Fu Hua pointed out that what is more important at the moment is that it is still necessary to strengthen management in areas that are still closed, and citizens in unblocked areas still need to protect themselves. “More importantly, vaccinations can build a wall of prevention and control.”
