How does the U.S. outbreak develop? What should international students pay attention to?
Currently, the number of cases of new crown pneumonia in the United States is severe, with more than 80,000 confirmed cases, and New York, Washington, California and other states are listed as "major disaster areas." What will happen next? What should students pay attention to in the United States? Would you like to return home?
As of now, more than 30,000 confirmed cases in New York State have been classified as "major disaster areas" by the United States. Some foreign students asked, does the more confirmed cases mean the worse the epidemic prevention and control in this city? Zhang Wenhong asked: "This is completely misunderstood. If New York State does not have the testing capabilities, where does the more than 30,000 confirmed cases come from?"
Zhang Wenhong said that it doesn't mean that the more the cases, the worse the prevention and control. On the contrary, the place with more cases may be because the detection is more in place. For example, the large increase in the number of cases in New York State is actually directly related to the detection. Therefore, if you see a large number of cases in an area, you do not need to worry about the test, which means that the doctor has a very sufficient test capacity.
Why is the infection rate so high among young Americans? The first experience accumulated in China's prevention and control for more than two months is that disease control personnel spare no effort in tracking cases, but it is more difficult to do so in the United States. Second, young Americans have a large amount of social activities, and many young people are daily The main thing is two words-"blind", "blind" is the greatest risk of infection. Masks are not commonly worn in the United States, as is the UK, and crowded with bars at night. It's hard to imagine that nothing happens. You can chat with you for a night while holding a glass of beer, and the risk of this situation spreading is great.
