The novel coronavirus pneumonia,

health times, WeChat reported on October 13th. According to incomplete statistics from health times, since September this year, many provinces, kindergartens, secondary schools and universities have reported more and more cases of norovirus infection. The number of infected persons even exceeded the number of newly diagnosed cases confirmed by the new month. According to the China Center for Disease Control and prevention, more than 30 cases of norovirus outbreaks have been reported in China since September, involving about 1500 cases. The cases clearly show that norovirus infection mainly occurs in schools.

and according to novel coronavirus pneumonia released by the national health and Health Committee, in September this year, 31 provinces and the Xinjiang production and Construction Corps reported 356 new confirmed cases of new coronavirus pneumonia, and 206 cases were diagnosed as of 24 at October 9th. The novel coronavirus pneumonia is not a simple diagnostic tool.

can not infer from a single month’s diagnosis that the spread of norovirus is stronger than that of the new crown pneumonia virus. Qinghua Changgeng hospital infectious diseases director Lin Minggui told reporters. Novel coronavirus pneumonia cannot be mention in the same breath as novel coronavirus pneumonia. The spread of norovirus is entirely different from that of the new crown, the

Lin Minggui said. The spread of the new crown pneumonia virus at the crowded places, the degree of harm to the patients’ lives and health as well as the mortality of the patients are much higher than that of norovirus. In addition, people’s understanding of norovirus is far more comprehensive and in-depth than that of new coronavirus. In the face of norovirus, as long as we do a good job in hand hygiene and ensure the safety of “imported” food, we can basically put an end to infection. “Digestive tract infectious diseases, as long as we ensure the safety of water sources and cut off the entry route of the virus, it will be OK.” According to the official website of China Center for Disease Control and prevention, norovirus is mainly transmitted by eating or drinking food or water contaminated by norovirus, touching objects or surfaces contaminated by the virus, putting fingers in the mouth, contacting patients with virus infection, such as taking care of patients, sharing food with patients or sharing tableware. The most common clinical symptoms were vomiting and diarrhea, followed by nausea, abdominal pain, headache, fever, chills and muscle soreness. Very few cases can be severe or even death. The high-risk groups of severe diseases are the elderly and young children. < p > < p > according to Lin Minggui, norovirus disease is relatively common in the world. As long as the infected person has no special basic disease, the number of virus infected is not particularly large, and there are no other special conditions in the body, the patients will recover after the virus reaches self limitation, and the symptoms are relatively mild. Most patients are not life-threatening, and some even do not need special conditions Treatment can recover on its own, “just like we have a cold.”. According to the China Center for Disease Control and prevention, norovirus infection mainly occurs in schools. After novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic prevention and control training, the public health system has been further improved, but there are still many deficiencies, especially in universities. This also exposes the shortcomings of China’s public health system Lin Minggui said. On September 27, the health and Health Commission of Langxi County, Anhui Province, received a report from the county hospital of traditional Chinese medicine that some students in Langxi County Lizhi middle school had symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea in recent days. The county CDC investigated the students receiving treatment and determined that they were infected with norovirus. < / P > < p > on September 24, 11 of the 25 children in Beicai kindergarten in Jinjiang District, Chengdu City, Sichuan province continued to experience vomiting and diarrhea after returning home. Norovirus was detected positive in children’s feces by District CDC. < p > < p > on September 23, some students in errenban Primary School of Mishan City, Jixi City, Heilongjiang Province, were found to have vomiting and diarrhea symptoms. According to the comprehensive analysis of relevant personnel from centers for Disease Control and prevention in Heilongjiang Province, Jixi City and Mishan City, the incident was considered as norovirus infection. < / P > < p > “there are two main reasons for the high incidence of norovirus in schools. One is that young people are generally under great pressure, stay up late, and lack of exercise, so they can not form a good living habit, which affects their physical fitness; the second is that the school’s food hygiene problems need to be strictly addressed, most of the outbreaks of norovirus diseases are related to food hygiene, and disease control The Department will certainly intervene in the investigation to determine the source of the virus. ” Lin Minggui told the health times. According to Lin Minggui, the prognosis of most norovirus diseases is good. We need not panic and try to form a good habit. We should eat less or no food from the stalls and choose a hygienic and safe dining place. Schools, troops and other collective life departments should pay special attention to food hygiene, ensure the safety of water and food, and avoid the purchase of perishable food materials, “especially seafood, fish and shrimp food as little as possible, deterioration or improper processing of seafood will lead to such problems.” 08/16/2020
