Early on the morning of the 4th, Meng Guhui, a resident of Hanzhong Community, Qiaokou District, Wuhan City, rushed to the nucleic acid testing spot near his home and waited in line for nucleic acid testing. The nucleic acid test site is equipped with a pergola and electric fans for residents to cool off. Everyone wore masks and cooperated with medical staff to conduct nucleic acid tests in an orderly manner. The public security police, urban management and other staff maintained order and reminded to “keep a safe distance.”
According to a report from the Hubei Provincial New Crown Pneumonia Epidemic Prevention and Control Headquarters on the 4th, from 0-24:00 on August 3, 2021, there were 9 new confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia in the province, all of which were local cases in Wuhan.

As Wuhan, once in the “eye of the storm” of the epidemic, the hearts of the citizens hang again. “Yesterday, Wuhan announced the launch of a comprehensive nucleic acid test for all employees, and the community responded quickly. Medical staff wear protective clothing to do nucleic acid on a hot day. We ordinary citizens must actively cooperate and twist into a rope. We believe that the spread of the epidemic will be blocked soon.” After finishing the nucleic acid, Meng Guhui bought two bottles of ice water for the medical staff to show his gratitude. “Wuhan speed is reassuring!” he said.
The reporter visited and found that even though it was the sweltering summer, most Wuhan citizens still maintain good protective habits such as wearing masks, whether indoors or outdoors. In addition, in buses and subway stations, the “bright green code” has also become a tacit understanding for citizens to travel.
“Please turn on the health code in advance to board the train.” At the Wusheng Road Metro Station in Wuhan, the staff reminded passengers that the “Wuhan City Real-Name Registration Code” can be seen everywhere. In terms of self-protection, passengers are more self-disciplined, sitting in separate positions, and some are wearing disposable gloves. At Capital Plaza in Wuhan, many stores have prepared anti-epidemic materials such as alcohol and hand sanitizer for customers to use.

In addition, there are everything in store for snacks, drinks and daily necessities. “A few days ago, many residents came to stock up for fear of lack of supplies. In fact, our supply here is very sufficient. Recently I have increased the frequency of purchases. Please rest assured that neighbors in the neighborhood.” The owner of the store said.
At the Changdi Street Fresh Market in Wuhan, Zhou Daping, a resident of Qiaokou District, and his wife bought fresh fruits and vegetables, pork and a bag of rice.
