Tianjin strictly controls access to Beijing
The Tianjin Epidemic Prevention and Control Headquarters issued a notice No. 5 on the 13th, saying that the management and control of the Tianjin epidemic risk area has been upgraded. According to the notice, Tianjin has unified arrangements for vehicles to enter and exit the epidemic-related areas, and it is strictly forbidden for people outside the risk control area to go to the closed control area, control area and prevention area to transport materials on their own.
Due to the heating up of the epidemic, Tianjin has strictly controlled the passage into Beijing, and 279 inspection points have been set up on the highway to inspect the 48-hour nucleic acid test negative certificate, the departure certificate and the green health code of the personnel leaving Tianjin; the railway passenger station has also begun to be inspected. The cross-city business of cruise cars, online car-hailing, and ride-hailing has stopped.
At present, the trains entering Beijing at some stations in the Tianjin area have taken control measures such as suspension of service and suspension of sales. The authorities have strictly controlled Jinnan District, Hexi District and Xiqing District where the outbreak was reported. The CCP official said that all channels should be “strictly guarded”.
An immunology expert who requested anonymity once told Lu media that there is a lot of uncertainty in the current situation in Tianjin. Since there are a large number of commuters between Tianjin and Beijing every day, if it is not well controlled, it may directly affect Beijing and even the Winter Olympics.
On the afternoon of January 14, Tianjin officials said that there are currently 45 family gathering outbreaks, with 2 to 5 cases in each family. Among them, the communities with more than 2 family gathering outbreaks only involve Xinzhuang Town and Xianshuigu Town in Jinnan District. The source of infection in this outbreak has not yet been identified, but all infected persons are still related to Jinnan District.

The mainland “Health Times” reported on the 14th that from January 8 to the present, in just 6 days, 53 students from 8 schools in Tianjin have been diagnosed. This round of epidemic has seen large-scale community transmission and campus transmission. On January 9, five districts in Tianjin issued notices of suspension of classes and holidays.
As of 24:00 on January 13, there were 142 confirmed cases in Tianjin and 22 local asymptomatic infections. The National Health Commission of the Communist Party of China reported on the 14th that on January 13, 143 new local cases were reported in 31 provinces and cities in mainland China (98 in Henan, including 69 in Anyang; 34 in Tianjin, including 28 in Jinnan District).
Because the CCP is accustomed to concealing the truth of the epidemic, the official data has been questioned by the outside world.
Mainland netizens said, “Please check the source of the epidemic in Tianjin as soon as possible. It is inconvenient to close roads and communities.” “The emergence of the virus in Xi’an, Tianjin, and Zhengzhou is still a mystery, and the source of this round of epidemic has not yet been identified.”
At present, Anyang, Henan Province has announced the trajectories of 58 confirmed cases, of which 53 are teachers and students of Tangyin Yucai Middle School. From January 14, Chengguan Town and Hanzhuang Town, Tangyin County, Henan Province, and Tunzhuang Village, Wuling Town, were set up as closed areas, and residents were required to stay at home.
According to the Voice of America report, Tu Xingzhe, the former director of Taiwan’s health and chairman of the consortium’s biotechnology development center, said in an interview that China has the most stringent epidemic prevention measures in the world, but at the expense of human rights and the economy.
Tu Xingzhe believes that there are too many asymptomatic people infected with the Omikron virus. If the screening test fails or there are too many false negatives during the screening, it will be more difficult to prevent the hidden infection of the virus.
Under this premise, Tu Xingzhe said that the possibility of the Beijing Winter Olympics being affected is very high. Even if the Winter Olympics will adopt “closed-loop management”, food and other materials will still have to be transported into the venues from outside. With such a flow of people, as long as there is an asymptomatic person who slips through the net, there is a possibility of a breach or outbreak of an epidemic in the Winter Olympics venues. is very high.
