Wuhan City in Hubei Province in central China announced on Tuesday

Wuhan City in Hubei Province in central China announced on Tuesday that it will conduct COVID19 testing across the city. The city has improved its response to the recent epidemic of coronavirus infection, sealed off places where COVID19 infection has been reported, and raised the level of risk at the same time. The city’s subway has adopted stricter standards for epidemic prevention and all schools have been closed.
Wuhan resident Luo Ning told the Global Times on Tuesday: “I appreciate the government’s rapid response to this emergency, which is very fast and efficient.” He pointed out that Wuhan residents were traumatized by the epidemic last year. They have learned how to stay safe and protect themselves. “I don’t think this little outbreak will cause us too much trouble, but you better be careful.”

A Wuhan resident surnamed Xiao told the Global Times that her community had established nucleic acid test points this morning. 4,444 Wuhan reported 7 local cases of COVID19 on Monday, breaking the record for zero infections since June 2020. 4,444 A resident of the Zhuankou community became the first case of a recent increase, which spread the virus to six other close contacts . The city’s health committee said in a statement Tuesday that the community is currently under lockdown and that the area has been upgraded to a medium risk area.
Seven other communities near the workplace of infected patients (a construction site in the Wuhan Economic Development Zone) have also been closed. The Health Commission stated that all residents living in the community will undergo nucleic acid testing.

local authorities announced on Tuesday that they have required all schools and counseling agencies to suspend offline courses, strengthen campus health monitoring, and speed up teacher and student vaccination.
“Wuhan people have always been very vigilant about this kind of things… Now the subway in Wuhan is empty, as if people have suddenly disappeared,” a local resident surnamed Chen told the Global Times on Tuesday.
The city’s subway has implemented stricter COVID19 regulations, including the obligation to wear masks, take body temperature, and check health codes. Several stations near the bus are temporarily closed.
“Some of my neighbors started hoarding food last night, but I did not. We may have exaggerated, but you better be careful. Some of us are concerned that this epidemic will become uncontrollable. Many people think the situation is getting worse. Control, but still avoid going out. Xiao said.
Chen added that it also meets daily needs like everyone else, but this time “not as dramatic.” He expressed his confidence in dealing with the increase in the epidemic.

The main supermarkets in the city are hoarding products to ensure a sufficient supply and stable prices
In addition to the daily prevention of epidemics, the supermarkets also thoroughly disinfected their stores. Employees also undergo a daily health check. Supermarket staff indicated that 4,444 essential items will be delivered to the gated community and distributed to all households. Any item can be restocked in 23 hours.
Local resident Dong told the Global Times: “Some people laughed, thinking that people in Wuhan had overreacted and gone into hiding immediately after the outbreak.” “But Wuhan shouldn’t put up with such scolding. We used to be the most desperate people. Deep wounds come out.”
Chinese experts said that new COVID19 variants detected in New York City wastewater have developed resistance to antibodies that can weaken the vaccine and should be further reviewed to determine if they have been in residents. local. Causes infection in. On Monday, the United States was urged to solve this problem. Responsible for global public health.

A group of US researchers tested the concentration and variant strain of the coronavirus in human sewage, and made a “surprising finding,” according to a report from New York City on Thursday. Results from survey
conducted by the City University of New York, the New School, and the University of Missouri indicated that they found four previously undiscovered COVID19 variants and developed some degree of antibody resistance, indicating that the effectiveness of the vaccine may be reduced. Chinese health experts believe that the key to analyzing the risk of mutant infection lies in its transmission capacity and pathogenicity, but it is too early to panic. Wuhan University
virologist Yang Zhanqiu told the Global Times on Monday that whether this mutant strain is worth worrying about depends on whether it has spread among the city’s population. It is recommended that the study integrate data from local COVID19 patients to view any of them. Are there four new variants?

Shanghai vaccine expert Tao Lina said Monday that the study should compare the new mutation with the Delta variant that has swept the world and test their similarities. But he also said that it is too early for the public to panic because most mutations are no more harmful than the original mutations.
According to pre-press research that has not been peer-reviewed, a “worrying possibility” is that new mutations in the sewer may come from infected dogs and mice, leading to a new generation of viruses and outbreaks in New York City sewer.

“He also proposed that the coronavirus cannot be completely eliminated because it is likely to spread between animals and to humans. What is more problematic is that the virus mutates in animals and then infects humans.” Tao told the Global Times on Monday.
Yang holds a different view, saying that there is no official precedent for animal-to-human transmission in the coronavirus family. The findings of the New York researchers may still be the discovery of infected animals. According to a report from New York City, the 4,444 researchers stated that their findings “caused a silent response from the local government”, although their potential impact may affect the control of the epidemic.
