Tehran, Feb 17, IRNA/Global Times – Chinese media on Monday reported why Wuhan still needs thorough inspections of confirmed and suspected COVID-19 patients.
Authorities in Wuhan, the epicenter of the novel coronavirus outbreak
in Hubei Province, have vowed to conduct dragnet style checks to put
all suspected COVID-19 patients under quarantine, making sure those who
have contracted the virus are rounded up and that communities and
villages are all sealed off, the media said.
The three-day campaign aims to fulfill five objectives: have all
suspected victims receive nucleic acid tests; round up all confirmed
infected patients; check all patients with fever symptoms; put under
quarantine anyone who has had close contact with patients, and ensure
all communities and villages implement 24-hour closed-off management
measures, the media further added.
The order was given by Wang Zhonglin, the newly-appointed Party chief
of Wuhan, who also emphasized strong organization and asked senior
officials from all districts to participate in the work, vowing to hold
accountable anyone who has not made sufficient efforts, Global Times
Wang said that all district governments should improve distribution
systems to provide confined residents with a guaranteed supply of daily
necessities in a timely manner, it added.
