Storyline


Mass vaccination and testing programs are continuing across China as part of strengthened efforts to combat new COVID-19 cases in the country, while the construction of a large-scale quarantine facility makes progress in north China's Hebei Province.

The Chinese mainland on Thursday reported 144 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases, comprised of 135 locally transmitted and 9 imported ones, the National Health Commission said Friday.

Of the locally transmitted cases, 90 were reported in Hebei, 43 in Heilongjiang, and one each in Guangxi and Shaanxi, the commission said in its daily report.

Heilongjiang reported 43 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 31 asymptomatic infections on Thursday, all of whom were close contacts or secondary close contacts of earlier COVID-19 infections in Huiqi Village, Wangkui County.

Huiqi has been designated a high-risk area, and all residents there have been moved to isolation centers.

The Department of Epidemic Control and Prevention in Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang Province, said on Friday that four areas in the city have been defined as medium-risk, following the report of some sporadic cases. All other areas of the city are still considered low-risk.

In Heilongjiang's Suihua City, where 92 confirmed COVID-19 cases were reported as of 17:00 Thursday, disinfection efforts have been strengthened in recent days.

As new cases continue to be reported across China, mass vaccination and testing campaigns are advancing quickly in north China's Shanxi Province.

In Shanxi Province, a COVID-19 vaccination campaign has fully launched for 10 key populations aged 18 to 59, covering cold chain workers, workers at quarantine sites, medical workers, and those who go abroad for business or private purposes.

Currently, there are more than 400 inoculation units in the province providing COVID-19 vaccination services.

After the key populations are vaccinated, the province will start inoculating the general public on Feb. 5. Up to now, Shanxi has completed about 440,000 inoculations.

As of 21:00 Thursday, a total of 681,050 nucleic acid samples had been collected at 266 test sites in Jinzhong City, Shanxi Province. So far, 296,540 samples have been processed, all of which are negative, local officials said at press briefing on Thursday night.

In Shijiazhuang City, north China's Hebei Province, where clusters of COVID-19 cases were reported over the past two weeks, the construction of a centralized medical observation center entered its third day on Friday.

The isolation center will likely cover 33 hectares of area near a village in Shijiazhuang's Zhengding County.

At a designated hospital in Shijiazhuang, children infected with COVID-19 are receiving treatment. Treating the most COVID-19 patients in the city, the hospital now has 470 COVID-19 patients, including 70 children, ranging in age from seven months to 14 years.

Hospitals in Shijiazhuang also opened 24-hour online service platforms to ensure local residents who wish to seek medical advice are able to do so amid COVID-19 restrictions.

With rigorous anti-epidemic measures in place, Shijiazhuang is also seeing a large amount of medical waste everyday. Shijiazhuang Water Affairs Group's Medical Waste Processing Company is now in charge of processing the medical waste of all designated hospitals, 51 quarantine spots, and dozens of nucleic acid test sites in the city.

After a total of 21 days under quarantine, the first community to close due to the epidemic in Shenyang City, northeast China's Liaoning Province, officially reopened, with more than 2,300 residents able to leave their homes.

Epidemic prevention and control work continues to move ahead in Shenyang, as key populations with a high risk of exposure to the virus in the city are being vaccinated to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infections. So far, more than 82,000 people in the city have been inoculated.

Similar scenes could also be seen in Shanghai, where medical workers have inoculated roughly 98,000 people from key groups.

About 23,000 high risk workers at designated quarantine sites and other key civil affairs departments, and about 75,000 workers handling cold chain products have also received their doses.

In Guangzhou City, south China's Guangdong Province, a total of 130,000 public transport employees working at high risk venues such as airports and railway stations have also been inoculated as of January 7.

In Nanning City, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, 24-hour free testing is being provided at five nucleic acid testing sites to residents living around Huqiu Village, where a new COVID-19 case was reported on Thursday.

Nearly 200 medical workers are working against time to step up detection in the village. As of 00:00 Friday, authorities had already collected 15,000 samples, and they plan to collect another 10,000 samples as soon as possible.

Since the source of some locally transmitted COVID-19 cases has been traced to cold-chain foods, authorities in east China's Zhejiang and Jiangxi provinces have further enhanced epidemic prevention and control of imported cold-chain foods to reduce the risk of transmission.

In order to further improve closed-loop management of imported cold-chain foods, the city of Ningbo in Zhejiang has comprehensively checked relevant units and individuals engaged in trade, production and processing, circulation and sales, storage and transportation, and catering of imported cold-chain foods as well as centralized market operators. Those who do not implement the purchase inspection system will be prosecuted according to the law.

So far, the Zhejiang Cold Chain system has activated a total of 4,243 enterprises and processed 45,500 nucleic acid tests. Two existing public centralized supervision warehouses in Ningbo have completed testing and disinfected 1,138 containers.

In Jiangxi Province, all local disease control and prevention departments have been continuing their work, sampling and testing imported goods, strengthening the disinfection and sterilization of key places, and strictly controlling the entry of people into Jiangxi from overseas and medium- and high-risk areas.

In Beijing, passengers of taxi and ride-hailing platforms are required to register their health status through a phone app when using the services, so as to better serve the city's epidemic prevention and control measures.
