Original title: The confirmed case in Wuhua County, Meizhou, Guangdong is the same transmission chain of Omicron infection and Zhuhai epidemic
According to CCTV news, on January 17, at a press conference on epidemic prevention and control in Meizhou, Guangdong, Luo Shengbiao, director of the Meizhou Center for Disease Control and Prevention, introduced the relevant situation of Wuhua’s confirmed cases.
Case Zheng Moumou, male, 11 years old, returned to Meizhou from Zhuhai by self-driving with his parents on the evening of January 11, and lived in Huayuan Village, Qiling Town, Wuhua County during his stay in Meizhou.
On January 14, Wuhua County People’s Hospital detected abnormal results in the mixed samples collected by 6 people. After receiving the report, the Meizhou City and Wuhua County CDC immediately carried out epidemiological investigation and emergency response work on the relevant personnel. After repeated apheresis tests on 6 people, Zheng Moumou’s nucleic acid test results showed repeated abnormalities, and the remaining 5 people’s results were negative.
In response to abnormal test results, the CDC at the city and county levels increased the frequency of nucleic acid testing. On January 16, the Meizhou CDC tested positive in the nucleic acid sample collected by Zheng for the seventh time. Comprehensive epidemiological investigation, clinical manifestations, laboratory test results, etc., determined to be asymptomatic infection of new coronary pneumonia.
It was then transferred to Shenzhen Third People’s Hospital for isolation and treatment. After further diagnosis, it was revised to be a confirmed case of new coronary pneumonia (mild).
The virus whole genome sequenced by the Guangdong Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention showed the infection of the Omicron variant strain, which belongs to the same transmission chain as the Zhuhai epidemic.
The scope of activities of the case in Mei involves: Huayuan Village, Qiling Town, Wuhua County, Jinfu Supermarket in Shuangtou Community, and Cuiyiming Milk Tea Shop. The above places have implemented control and terminal disinfection as required.
In view of the current epidemic situation, the CDC recommends that the public cooperate in nucleic acid testing to ensure that all the tests should be done, and at the same time, observe the on-site order of the sampling and testing points, do not gather together, keep a distance of one meter in line, and wear masks. Do a good job of physical health monitoring. If you have symptoms such as fever, dry cough, fatigue, sore throat, decreased sense of smell (taste), diarrhea, etc., wear a mask and seek medical treatment as soon as possible, and avoid taking public transportation.
Luo Shengbiao emphasized that vaccination against the new crown virus is the most effective measure to prevent and control the spread of the new crown virus. Those eligible citizens who have not been vaccinated against the new crown virus, please arrange a time to complete the vaccination as soon as possible.
