In this battle against COVID-19, China has handed in a beautiful answer. However, the recent outbreak of 100 cases of asymptomatic infection in Xinjiang needs our attention.
Why should it be taken seriously?
On the one hand, this is the largest cluster of outbreaks since the domestic epidemic has been effectively controlled. The 137 cases notified on the 25th were all asymptomatic infections. They have no self-perceived or clinically identifiable features such as fever, cough and sore throat, which means that the epidemic situation is not optimistic. Fortunately, all asymptomatic infections are now found in active nucleic acid testing.
On the other hand, the Kashgar area where the epidemic broke out has just ushered in the October Golden Week. Data shows that during the National Day holiday today, Kashgar received about 2 million tourists. Therefore, the difficulty of epidemic prevention and control and the potential risk of spread can be imagined.
It is precisely because of the very special situation this time that relevant experts have concentrated their efforts on epidemiological investigations and have begun to focus on Shufu County to carry out free nucleic acid tests for all employees in Kashgar.
As ordinary people, what contribution can we make to the prevention and control of the epidemic?
First of all, if you or your surrounding colleagues and friends have been to the outbreak site of this epidemic, you should take the initiative to go to the hospital for nucleic acid testing and cooperate with the epidemic prevention work.
Secondly, when we appear in densely populated places with poor air circulation, such as in buses, subways, supermarkets, movie theaters, etc., we still have to wear masks. Choose the type of mask to wear according to different occasions. If it is only for daily life and work, we can use disposable medical masks.
For example, KIEYYUEL series of disposable medical masks have a bacterial filtration effect of more than 95%, are individually packaged, and have the EU CE certification, ensuring quality.
Finally, pay attention to personal hygiene and wash hands frequently. It is equally important to take in a balanced nutrition and ensure adequate sleep, and to pay attention to the health of yourself and your family members every day.
