[NTDTV, Beijing, January 27, 2022]On Wednesday (January 26), Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province, China announced that a confirmed case of the CCP virus was confirmed to be infected with a mutant strain of Omicron. The authorities panicked, and while thousands of close contacts and semi-close contacts were quarantined, all Hangzhou residents’ itinerary cards were marked with a star logo, and Hangzhou netizens were discussing online about travel restrictions.

Based on Hangzhou’s official notification and local media reports, a confirmed case in the city on the 26th was confirmed by genetic sequencing that the virus infected by the patient was an Omiron variant.

The patient Gan Moumou (male) is an employee of Huierte Catering Equipment Co., Ltd. Before he became ill, he attended the annual meeting held by the company on January 19. At that time, more than 300 people attended the annual meeting. The patient had extensive contact with other colleagues at the annual meeting, and a singing and dancing performance was arranged at the annual meeting. and sweepstakes. Photos posted by the company on its website show employees attending the annual meeting without masks, as hundreds of people gathered for extended periods of time in a closed restaurant.

Gan Moumou began to have symptoms of runny nose and sneezing on the afternoon of the 21st, and a sore throat the next day, which has not been significantly relieved. Afterwards, Gan Moumou went to the fever clinic of the Binjiang District of the Second Zhejiang Medical Hospital at 10 pm on the 25th, and the nucleic acid test was positive; in the early morning of the 26th, the re-examination test of the Hangzhou CDC was still positive and the diagnosis was confirmed.

An Omiron variant appeared in Hangzhou, panicking the authorities. Official information shows that after sampling and testing the environmental surfaces of the close contacts, sub-close contacts, homes, and work units of the above-mentioned cases, 17 samples were found to be positive.

Hangzhou officials announced on the 26th that from 20:00 on January 26, 2022, Huierte (China) Catering Equipment Co., Ltd., No. 151, Jianye Road, Changhe Street, Binjiang District, Hangzhou City will be adjusted to a medium-risk area. At the same time, all large-scale events in the city will be cancelled, and large-scale forums, temple fairs, corporate annual meetings and other activities will also be suspended.

Just on the 26th, netizens in Hangzhou complained on the Internet that their itinerary cards suddenly had a star sign on them, worrying that the Hangzhou authorities’ “one-size-fits-all” approach to epidemic prevention would cause obstacles to their travel:

“I’m speechless. I have stars in Qiantang District. I’m not in a high-risk area. If something is wrong, can I still go home?”

“Asterisks are now equal to yellow codes in most areas.”

“Just like Shanghai, one person infected more than 20 million people with stars.”

This is the second time that Hangzhou citizens have been subjected to the treatment of “itinerary code with stars” on a large scale, and the itinerary will be subject to many restrictions, including affecting the plan to go home for the Chinese New Year.

According to public information, an asterisk

appears on the itinerary card of the public, indicating that the cardholder is in or has passed through or visited a city with medium-risk or high-risk areas. Officials say that when epidemic prevention managers see an asterisk on a user’s itinerary, they should further verify whether the other party has actually been to a medium or high-risk area, and then follow local epidemic prevention policies to determine whether isolation is required.

Hangzhou officials also require people with asterisks on their itinerary cards, if there are cities in the past 14 days that contain medium and high-risk areas, they need to report to the relevant local management departments in time; even if they have not been to medium and high-risk areas, they should also Before traveling, understand the travel policies of various places, “judging whether to continue to travel according to the requirements of local epidemic prevention management”.

In other words, although the government has not officially announced that it is impossible to travel with an asterisk on the itinerary card, it has not prohibited local epidemic prevention agencies from taking restrictive measures against cardholders with “stars”.

Some netizens pointed out that the current status quo in mainland China is that local governments are in favor of the left over the right when it comes to epidemic prevention, and the epidemic prevention regulations are becoming more and more strict. Signs, travel restrictions are a high probability.
