mask 01People in China must keep wearing face masks 'for at least another year' to fend off the killer bug, Beijing's top coronavirus expert has warned.
 

Zhang Boli, a medical specialist who was appointed by Beijing to supervise the country's coronavirus response, asserted that wearing face coverings should become a norm for Chinese citizens even when the outbreak is contained.
 

'I think the face masks will not be taken off for at least another year, at least this time next year. [We] definitely need to be prepared,' Zhang told state broadcaster CCTV Saturday.
 

Zhang's warning comes as fears of a second wave of the outbreak are fuelled after clusters of infections have recently emerged across the country.
 

The Traditional Chinese Medicine expert was invited to speak on 'Kai Jiang La', an educational youth programme aired on state broadcaster CCTV Saturday.

mask 02When asked about if people can stop wearing face masks during summer, Zhang predicted that the face-coverings would become a regularity for the foreseeable future.
 

'At the moment, it looks like the coronavirus does not have many correlations to temperatures,' Zhang told the presenter. 'You see, in places like Indonesia and India, where the temperatures are quite high, there are still a lot of infections.
 

'Even if the outbreak is contained, I think [we will] still need to wear face masks. [We] really have to adopt such habit.'
 

The health official asserted: 'I think the face masks will not be taken off for at least another year, at least this time next year. [We] definitely need to be prepared.'
 

口罩还要戴一年

在5月17日播出的央视《开讲啦》节目中,中央疫情防控指导组专家组成员、中国工程院院士、天津中医药大学校长张伯礼开讲。
 

张伯礼院士:
即使疫情控制了,还是要戴口罩的
 

张伯礼院士说:“新冠从现在看,它和温度没有那么明确的关系。所以像印度尼西亚、印度温度都挺高,但是现在它传染的也很多。即使疫情控制了,我想还是要戴口罩的,还真是(要)养成这种习惯。我估计这个口罩,在一年之内,起码到明年这时候是摘不掉的,一定要做好这种准备。”
 

我们什么时候能用上新冠疫苗?
 

张伯礼院士解答:“中国疫苗的研制走在世界前列,国内目前已经有三支疫苗批准上临床了。走在最前面的是陈薇院士所做的RNA的疫苗,一期一百零八例,已经评价完成。现在二期五百例,已经入组全部完毕。如果这期顺利的话,她就要开展第三期的实验。”
 

但是他表示,下一步的关键就是产能,疫苗成功了,我们十四亿人口了,产能一般的疫苗大概只能供也就一千万人。一千万人太少了,所以我们会扩大产能。扩大产能也是有限的,也是有一个时间的。
 

中国疾控中心:
三种情况下仍建议戴口罩

一是在较封闭的公共场所,如公共交通工具、电梯、人多的公共场所内应配戴口罩;
二是生病时,尤其出现发热、咳嗽呼吸道症状时要戴口罩,避免传染给其他人;
三是在医院等特定环境内要戴口罩。
 

在通风条件良好并且能够保持比较好的、安全的社交距离的情况下,可以不戴口罩,如公园、人较少的街道、操场。尤其在剧烈运动时更不能佩戴口罩。此外,在近期没有新发病例报告的低风险地区也无需戴口罩。
