There are two independent transmission chains in this round of the epidemic, which have led to branches of the transmission chain

According to Pang Xinghuo, since April 22, the Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention has completed the sequencing of 483 local infected specimens. The virus sequences spilled over to other provinces and cities are exactly the same. There are two independent transmission chains in this round of the epidemic, and the branches of the transmission chain are triggered. The newly infected persons whose source of infection has been identified so far are all epidemiologically related to the previously notified infected persons. There are still hidden sources of infection in society, and the spread of the epidemic has not been completely blocked.

Regional nucleic acid screening is of great significance for early detection of hidden sources of infection and interruption of transmission

Pang Xinghuo introduced that the current situation of epidemic prevention and control in this city is severe and complicated, and the risk of social transmission still exists. Regional nucleic acid screening is of great significance for early detection of hidden sources of infection and interruption of the spread of the epidemic. All relevant sub-districts, towns, communities (villages), and all relevant units must perform their main responsibilities, and organize and arrange personnel in their jurisdictions and their employees to screen as much as possible. All inspections should be carried out, and no one should be missed. All communities (villages) and property management departments must effectively perform their management responsibilities, strengthen the management of access to residential quarters, maintain good gates, look after people, check codes, and register, so as to reduce the flow of people and reduce the risk of community transmission. Please implement home office and point-to-point closed-loop management areas, strengthen personnel management, strictly control the arrival rate, and effectively implement various prevention and control measures such as health monitoring, nucleic acid testing, and verification certification.
