Since the nucleic acid testing of all staff on May 14th, the number of single-day nucleic acid testing in Wuhan has continued to rise-on May 21st, this number has exceeded 1 million.
According to the official website of the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission, from 0 to 24 on May 21, the city received 402 hot clinics, an increase of 22 from the previous day, of which 220 were the first. On May 21st, the number of the city’s nucleic acid detection was 1000729 person-times.
Previously, Wuhan’s single-day nucleic acid detection since May 14 were: 72791 person-times, 113609 person-times, 222675 person-times, 335887 person-times, 467847 person-times, 856128 person-times, 887321 person-times.
According to statistics from www.thepaper.cn, Wuhan has completed 3956987 nucleic acid detections within 8 days.
In addition, in these 8 days, Wuhan has added 134 cases of asymptomatic infections and 1 confirmed case.
According to previous reports from the People ’s Daily, on May 14th, Wuhan held a work deployment meeting on “Enhancing Nucleic Acid Testing in the City and Accelerating Screening for Asymptomatic Infected Persons”. To further find out the number of asymptomatic infections, and then effectively control, so that reassure people across the country, reassure people in Wuhan.
The meeting stated that recently, Wuhan has still detected several to dozens of asymptomatic infections every day. Although these asymptomatic infections are all treated in isolation, they still cause concern in society. In order to create a safe and healthy environment for resuming production, resuming business and resuming classes, it was decided to expand the scope of nucleic acid testing and increase the screening and treatment of asymptomatic patients on the basis of the completion of more than 3 million nucleic acid tests in the early stage.
On the afternoon of May 18th, at the press conference of Hubei Province’s Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia Epidemic Prevention and Control Work, Feng Zijian, deputy director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention and expert of the Contact Group of the Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council, introduced from April 8 to May 17, The amount of nucleic acid detection in Wuhan was 2642499 person-times, and 707 asymptomatic infections were detected, and the detection rate of asymptomatic infections was 2.7 per 10,000.
Feng Zijian said that the current asymptomatic infections in Hubei are mostly latent infections, which are less contagious. As the “denominator” of nucleic acid testing increases, the “numerator” of asymptomatic infected persons shrinks, indicating that the residual infection and transmission of the virus in the population are getting weaker.
