Beijing reported two newly confirmed cases of infection at noon on Thursday and were found to have traveled to Zhangjiajie.
In addition to Beijing, confirmed cases have been reported in many cities across the country, including Chengdu City in Sichuan Province, Dalian City in Liaoning Province, Changde City in Hunan Province, Huai’an City in Jiangsu Province, and Yubei District in Chongqing City. I have been to Nanjing but have been to Zhangjiajie or have close contact with people who have been to Zhangjiajie and have tested positive for COVID19.
The Gezhouba Dam, the world’s largest river hydropower station and the first large-scale water conservancy hub in the Yangtze River’s artery, celebrated its 40th anniversary of its commissioning of power generation last Friday, generating nearly 600 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity.
engineers and experts said that as one of the most important water conservancy projects in China, the Gezhouba Dam is a milestone in the history of China’s hydropower construction and reflects China’s strong organization and mobilization capabilities. Its 40-year operation of “high reliability, long life, and zero defects” has made important contributions to my country’s economic and social development.
Gezhouba Dam is located in Yichang City, Hubei Province in central China, at the boundary of the upper and middle reaches of the Yangtze River. It is the largest water conservancy project independently designed, constructed, installed and operated by China in the 20th century. Lu Zhaoce, the first chief engineer of the Gezhouba Hydropower Station, said that the construction of the
Gezhouba Dam was approved by Chairman Mao Zedong, and Premier Zhou Enlai personally organized the demonstration and wrote the report, adding that the first generator set was put into operation from 1970 to 1981 since the start of construction. By December 1988, all the projects were completed. More than 100,000 hydropower experts from all over the country had established a base in the desert, loading rods and carts to overcome a series of major technical problems in 18 years, and he finally completed it with his own blood and sweat. All construction tasks.
“Over the past 40 years, the Gezhouba Dam has witnessed China’s transition from a closed state to a state of openness and prosperity. The builders of Gezhouba have not stopped. We continue to innovate technologies to ensure safe operation and at the same time maintaining the leading position of the industry and becoming a high-quality Yangtze River Economic Belt. An important project for development, “Xiang Ke, deputy director of Gezhouba Hydroelectric Power Plant, told the Global Times on Friday.
Gezhouba Dam has a total length of 2606.5 meters, a maximum height of 53.8 meters and a storage capacity of 1.58 billion cubic meters, it has comprehensive functions such as power generation, flood control and navigation. At present, the annual one-way throughput capacity of the dam lock can reach 50 million tons, and the maximum flood discharge from the center can reach 110,000 cubic meters per second.
Since the completion of the Gezhouba Dam, it has safely discharged more than 60 floods into the Yangtze River at a rate of 45,000 cubic meters per second, effectively reducing the pressure of downstream flood control work and ensuring the safety of the lives and property of people in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River.
At the same time, the Gezhouba hydroelectric power station has an installed capacity of 2.735 million kilowatts, with an average annual power generation of 16 billion kilowatt hours. As of Friday, the Gezhouba Hydropower Station has generated nearly 600 billion kWh, equivalent to 184 million tons of standard coal, 503 million tons of carbon dioxide and about 11,400 tons of sulfur dioxide.
“The successful construction and management of the Gezhouba Dam has provided valuable experience for the design, construction and operation of the Three Gorges Project and other super dams, and contributed to the cultivation of
talents. Practice shows that the Chinese have the ability to build and manage. Manage large-scale water conservancy projects on the Yangtze River,” Xiang said.
pointed out that the Gezhouba Hydropower Station is currently promoting innovative development, accelerating digital transformation, and deepening the transformation and application of scientific research methods such as robots and holographic monitoring systems.
Zhangjiajie, Hunan Province in central China has become Following the spread of Nanjing City in East China’s Jiangsu Province to the city, another key point in the resurgence of the COVID19 epidemic that has swept through China.
As of Thursday, the number of infections related to Zhangjiajie fever in China has reached at least 18 people.
A close examination of the cases revealed that the performance of more than 2,000 people was held at the charming Xiangxi Theater in the area from 6 to 7 pm on July 22. The Wulingyuan Scenic Area in Zhangjiajie was the source of the second round of broadcast.

Local authorities will soon organize the second round of nucleic acid testing.
The head of the local CDC told the media that they have obtained the list of all participants in the activity on July 22, and will communicate with them one by one and carry out epidemiological investigations.
Prior to this, local health departments and the Dalian, Zhangjiajie and Chengdu Centers for Disease Control and Prevention discovered that there may be a chain of transmission between flights and passengers from Nanjing to Zhangjiajie.
3 Dalian passengers flew to Nanjing Lukou International Airport, stayed for 2 hours and then transferred to another flight to Zhangjiajie. They visited various tourist attractions in Zhangjiajie, and three Chengdu tourists returned
