On December 9, Zhejiang held the 58th new crown pneumonia epidemic prevention and control work press conference. The relevant persons in charge of the Provincial Leading Group Office of Prevention and Control and the Provincial Market Supervision Bureau introduced the situation of coordinating and promoting epidemic prevention and control and economic and social development.


The reporter learned from the press conference that, in order to effectively prevent the hidden dangers of “physical transmission from person to person”, Zhejiang will inspect the inspection, loading and unloading, transportation, storage, processing, and sales of imported cold chain food, other imported goods, inbound passengers’ luggage and other items. As the key personnel of epidemic prevention and control, the staff in loading and unloading and other links strictly implement the protection requirements, continue to carry out daily health monitoring, and increase the frequency of nucleic acid testing. At the same time, strengthen the nucleic acid testing of entry articles and the involved practitioners. The number of practitioner samples, article samples, and environmental samples tested in each county (city, district) each week shall not be less than 30.


The press conference notified the relevant handling of the recent nucleic acid-positive imported cold chain food:


At 21:00 on the evening of December 2, the daily monitoring samples of cold chain food collected by the Yuhuan Center for Disease Control and Prevention at the Chengguan Central Vegetable Market found a frozen pig hind leg specimen imported from Brazil that tested positive for the new Virus nucleic acid. After being traced by the “Zhejiang Cold Chain” system, the products involved entered the country via Shanghai Yangshan Port on September 28. The local area quickly adopted emergency measures such as cargo storage, personnel inspection and isolation, and site elimination, and carried out nucleic acid tests on the environment and employees outside the market overnight. The relevant districts and counties of Taizhou City involved in product circulation immediately carried out cargo and personnel tracking, investigation and disposal. The Prevention and Control Office also notified neighboring provinces and cities. According to statistics, Taizhou City collected a total of 174 samples of the same batch of products, outer packaging, and external environment involved, and 3304 people involved were identified. The nucleic acid test results were all negative.


On December 5, Wuxi City, Jiangsu Province, notified a company that the outer packaging of imported frozen boneless beef brisket stocked by the company had tested positive for the new Virus. Zhejiang immediately organized Hangzhou, Ningbo, Huzhou, Jiaxing, Shaoxing, Zhoushan, Taizhou and other seven areas involved in the same batch of products to carry out emergency sampling and testing, personnel health monitoring and disinfection, and sealed the products for harmless disposal. As of December 8, 4,975 samples of related products and packaging, external environment and practitioners have been sampled and tested, and the nucleic acid test results are all negative.


In order to improve the closed-loop management mechanism of imported cold-chain food, Zhejiang has carried out a “full-scale operation” on imported cold-chain food that enters through Zhejiang ports or flows into Zhejiang through Zhejiang ports for storage, processing (subcontracting), and sales. Controlled, no omissions” closed-loop management, clearly stated “four must not”, namely:


Those without an inspection and quarantine certificate are not allowed to be marketed, those without a nucleic acid test report are not allowed to be marketed, those without a disinfection certificate are not allowed to be marketed, and those without the traceable source code of cold chain foods are not allowed to be marketed, effectively reducing the risk of epidemic spread of imported cold chain foods.


In addition, Zhejiang will also strengthen the prevention and control of new crown virus in imported goods and related staff. Judging from the recent domestic cases, in the low temperature environment in winter, the new Virus may spread through non-cold chain logistics systems, which puts forward new requirements for physical defense work. Focusing on further improving the “source inspection and control + hard core isolation + precision intelligent control” mechanism, Zhejiang has formulated guidelines for the prevention and control of entry articles and related staff. Among them, all imported goods transported by international cargo flights or via ports to the country, except for some bulk commodities, are precautionary and comprehensively disinfected on the transportation means and the outer packaging of the products; the outer surface of the checked luggage of inbound passengers is passed through the airport conveyor belt In principle, uniform disinfection is required before extraction. The disinfection work follows the principles of safety, effectiveness, and convenient operation, which not only reduces the risk of the new crown virus being imported through imported goods, but also minimizes unnecessary operation links and costs.


According to the relevant person in charge of the Office of the Provincial Leading Group for Prevention and Control, Zhejiang has had no new local confirmed case reports for 175 consecutive days; there are currently 4 confirmed cases treated in hospital, and 27 cases of asymptomatic infections are still under medical observation, all from overseas enter.


Due to the occurrence of sporadic cases in Manzhouli City of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Zhalai Nuoer District of Hulunbuir City, Pidu District and Chenghua District of Chengdu City of Sichuan Province, according to the requirements of Zhejiang’s normalized precision intelligent control mechanism, those who are classified as high-risk or medium-risk Those who come to Zhejiang and return to Zhejiang from the region, if they are unable to provide a negative nucleic acid test certificate within 7 days before arriving at their destination, or a “health code” green code containing the information, they will be directed to a designated place such as a local comprehensive service point for nucleic acid testing; the result is negative It can flow freely and orderly under the premise of normal temperature measurement and personal protection.


In addition, in view of the fact that the epidemic situation in Kashgar, Xinjiang has been under control, and Zhejiang has been reduced to a low-risk level throughout the region, no longer requires personnel leaving Kalai and Zhejiang to return to Zhejiang to provide a negative nucleic acid test certificate. For those returning to Zhejiang from the Dongjiang Port District of Tianjin City, Binhai New Area and Shanghai Pudong New Area, which have been reduced to low risks, a negative nucleic acid test certificate is no longer required.


Since the outbreak of the epidemic, Zhejiang has successively detected new crown virus-positive crews from international ships repaired in Hong Kong. Strengthening epidemic prevention in this field is an important part of foreign defense input. Based on actual conditions, relevant coastal areas have formulated international ship maintenance business order review management measures, combined with comprehensive research and judgment on ship trajectories, berthing ports, crew shifts, etc., and targeted risk identification. In accordance with the requirements of “full inspection, inspection first, inspection first, inspection first, and repair first”, the nucleic acid test of the crew is fully covered before the international ship enters the factory for repair; crew changes are not allowed before the test results are issued, and repairs are not allowed operation. At the same time, ship repair companies are required to establish a comprehensive killing registration and reporting system, and repair operations can only be carried out after the killing.
