What experience in epidemic prevention in China is worth learning? How to prevent and control imported cases? Will being bitten by mosquitoes infect new coronavirus?
Recently, News of the Central Radio and Television Station, in conjunction with the Chinese Embassy in South Korea, invited Academician Zhong Nanshan to connect with South Korean epidemic prevention experts. The program was reported by many mainstream Korean media such as Yonhap News Agency, MBN News and YTN News Channel. attention.
South Korea learns the experience of Chinese patients in graded diagnosis and treatment
Li Zhongqiu, a professor at the Medical College of Seoul National University in South Korea, said in the connection that after the peak of the Korean epidemic, the increase of nearly a thousand confirmed cases in a single day brought great pressure to the hospital.
South Korea refers to the experience of Chinese patients in graded diagnosis and treatment: transforming dormitories or hotels into “square cabin hospitals” for the treatment of mild patients; large and medium-sized hospitals for the treatment of severe patients; university hospitals for the treatment of critically ill patients, ensuring that each patient has an independent negative pressure bed . Thanks to the measures of graded diagnosis and treatment, the Korean medical system did not become paralyzed after a sharp increase in the number of diagnosed patients.
The risk of imported cases abroad exists, but the risk does not equal reality
Li Zhongqiu pointed out in the connection that currently imported cases in China and South Korea are increasing. How to prevent and control imported cases is worth discussing.
Zhong Nanshan said that the risk of imported cases must exist, but the risk is not equal to reality. As long as strict monitoring and tracking are adopted in the country, they will be quarantined as soon as they are discovered, and close contacts will be closely observed. It is not realistic to completely clear the foreign input to zero, as long as it is controlled to the lowest level.
Mass immunization is not feasible, China is developing five vaccines at the same time
Zhong Nanshan believes that the direction of the global epidemic depends on two aspects: one is the law of the disease itself, and the general respiratory diseases will be reduced in summer; the second is the intervention situation, the mortality rate of new Coronavirus is relatively high, and the rapid development of vaccines should be considered Instead of relying on the “group immunization” method.
Regarding the research and development progress of the new coronavirus vaccine,
Zhong Nanshan said: “Now five kinds of vaccines in China are being developed at the same time. Currently, the faster adenovirus vector vaccine and fully inactivated vaccine have been launched. The live vaccine will soon start clinical trials. We need to observe it for a period of time after the clinical trial, usually one to two years, but it may also be released in advance due to the development of the disease. “
Will not be infected with New Coronavirus after being bitten by mosquitoes
As the temperature rises, many people begin to worry that the “full city fly” in the spring and the mosquitoes in the summer will spread the new coronavirus.
In this regard, Zhong Nanshan said that he has not heard of cases of infection of new coronavirus through insects, so mosquito bites should not be a problem. If it is in a very severe epidemic area, catkins may be contaminated by the patient’s cough droplets. But at present, there are no epidemic areas in China, so catkins are not an important source of infection.
After the program was broadcast, South Korea’s MBN TV station, MBC TV station, SBS TV station and YTN news station all broadcast the news that Academician Zhong Nanshan and South Korean epidemic prevention experts were connected. More than ten mainstream Korean media such as Yonhap News Agency, Newsis News Agency, “Daily Economy” and “National Daily” also reproduced the report of “Online Communication of Anti-epidemic Experts in China and South Korea”.
