China said on Thursday that COVID-19 cases of "Indian strain" have been reported in some cities of the country.

Wu Zunyou, the chief epidemiologist with the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, told a news conference that cases of the coronavirus strain found in India have also been detected in some Chinese cities.

He said the mutation of the coronavirus has been occurring since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the country can block the transmission of different virus variants.

At least 11 Chinese crew members of a cargo ship tested positive for the coronavirus after returning from India, as reported on Wednesday in the Zhoushan city of the eastern Zhejiang province.

As China's Labor Day holiday approaches, Wu also emphasized the importance of normalizing pandemic measures.

我国多地检出印度的变异病毒

世卫组织调查显示,近期,科学家在印度境内发现了另一种变异的新冠病毒,他们将其称为B.1.617。世卫专家推测,与其他在印度境内传播的新冠病毒相比,这种新发现的变异病毒传染性更强,发病率更高。因此,B.1.617很有可能就是造成印度近期疫情恶化的原因之一。

据统计,目前B.1.617已经蔓延到至少18个国家,主要出现在印度、英国、美国、以及新加坡。值得警惕的是,这种变异病毒最近开始侵入中国,内地部分城市已发现相关病例。

此外,个别城市还出现了自印度输入的确诊患者。据浙江省卫健委29日消息,此前一天,该省新增确诊病例11例,其中,1例为此前从印尼入境的无症状感染者,28日正式确诊,剩余10例全部来自印度。目前,有关部门已进行严密排查,新增确诊患者的密切接触者都已被安排集中隔离。

这一系列事件警示我们,新冠病毒是人类共同的敌人,这场抗击疫情的战争远未结束。
