The chief epidemiologist of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Wu Zunyou, said on Monday that he was optimistic that Beijing would have zero new infections of COVID-19 in roughly a week, as authorities continued to conduct citywide testing and cut chains of local transmission.
 

Wu, who has been in charge of briefing the public on the recent outbreak in Beijing in the past few weeks, gave the forecast during an interview with China Central Television on June 29. He stated that most of the patients accounting for recent COVID-19 cases in the capital have been put under strict quarantine, and Beijing was expected to bring new cases down to zero in about a week. Wu added that there might be sporadic cases in July, but Beijing was predicted to become free of COVID-19 by the end of next month.
 

"As we get closer to the final victory, we need to stay vigilant and continue practicing the necessary measures to prevent the spread of COVID 19,” Wu said.

The city of more than 20 million people has been battling a new wave of COVID-19 infections since a cluster of new cases linked to a local wholesale food market broke out around mid-June. In order to contain the virus’s spread, the Chinese capital rolled out mass nucleic acid testing for the coronavirus and implemented a series of sweeping measures, including closing schools, imposing lockdowns on residential neighborhoods, and canceling flights.
 

As of yesterday, Beijing has tested about a third of its population for the virus and discovered a total of 311 COVID-19 patients, according to the latest official figures.

While the city ordered most businesses to close, Beijing’s education authorities announced that this year’s annual college entrance exam, the gaokao, would take place as planned. On July 7 and 8, about 10.7 million students across the country will sit for the exam in various locations.
 

During a press conference today, Liyi, a spokesperson for Beijing’s Ministry of Education, said that local schools and health departments had been monitoring the exam takers’ health status closely. On the days of the exam, students are required to have their temperatures checked before entering test sites. The education bureau also ordered exam locations to limit the number of people in each room to 20.
 

未来7天北京报告病例可能清零

吴尊友介绍,接下来一周北京报告病例有可能清零,主要基于北京市及时采取防控措施,后期发现的病例主要来自集中隔离点的隔离者,比例在90%左右。这些人一部分是通过核酸筛查发现,有些通过密切接触者追踪发现的。
 

病毒最长潜伏期14天。单次进入新发地的人员在隔离期平均发病期在4天至13天。从时间判断,未来7天左右,北京疫情报告病例或将清零。
 

吴尊友介绍,首次清零后,还会出现零星病例。当零星病例再次清零后,再过3周至4周,就可以判定疫情彻底控制了。调整响应级别,还需要根据专家和多部门的分析做决定。
 

他介绍,“越接近最后胜利的时候,越要咬紧牙关,不能松懈,各项防治措施要一如既往地加强,甚至比以前更加仔细。”
