The Corona virus in China is raging. In the three years since the start of the novel coronavirus pandemic, China now probably has the highest number of infected people and the highest number of deaths from the infection.
However, at this stage, China has lifted the quarantine measures for immigrants and the ban on free movement within and outside the country. The New Year and Lunar New Year holidays in late January are likely to see large-scale migrations of Chinese, once again creating tensions around the world.
Ahead of Japan in the real was “with crown”.
On December 26, the Chinese government changed the name of “new coronary pneumonia (new coronavirus pneumonia)” to “new coronary pneumonia (new coronavirus infection)”. Along with that, we will relax preventive control measures for infectious diseases from class A (strict management control) to class B (basic prevention and treatment), and from January 8, we will not take quarantine measures for people entering the country from abroad did. Both Chinese and foreigners are free to enter the country as long as they have a negative PCR test certificate 48 hours before entering the country. Aircraft seats have also lifted the social distancing restriction of “one person in five seats”. It also removed restrictions on the number of flights, which were previously limited to one country and one route.
Close contact determination is not performed. It will not distinguish between high and low risks, treat infected people according to their severity, adjust medical safety policies in a timely manner, and fail to implement quarantine management for immigrants and cargo. PCR tests after entering Japan are not mandatory, and even if they test positive, they will not be forced into quarantine if they are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms and no underlying disease, and will be left to voluntary management.
China’s infectious disease policy is divided into three categories, Class A, Class B, and Class C (A, B, C), according to the danger of the virus. Shellfish are plague and cholera. Type B includes SARS, AIDS, hepatitis B, epidemic hemorrhagic fever, rabies, and dengue fever. Type C includes flu, mumps, and measles.
