Omicron infections spread from Tianjin to Henan

Anyang, a city with a population of 5 million in Central China's Henan Province, began city-wide testing and imposed strict COVID-19 prevention measures, such as stopping outbound railway, bus and taxi services, after the city reported 26 COVID-19 cases during the past two days, two of which involved the Omicron variant, the same transmission chain as that found in Tianjin.
 

One of the two is a college student who returned to Anyang from Tianjin on December 28, 2021 and tested positive on Saturday, which the media said is the source of Anyang's outbreak this time.
 

Most of the confirmed cases in Anyang are students from a local middle school in the city's Tangyin county.
 

The local government has identified 1,495 close contacts and put them under quarantine. It began to test people in the whole city, and key areas like Tangyin county have already launched a second round of massive nucleic tests.
 

The city set up health monitoring points at every entrance and exit; suspended ticket sales for trains and buses that go out of the city, and ordered taxis and ride-hailing vehicles not to go out, a move to prevent Anyang's outbreak from spilling over.
 

Anyang has asked any resident who visited Tianjin's high-risk areas to report to local communities.
 

The Henan city has become the first place to be affected by the flare-up in Tianjin, which is now fighting a real battle against Omicron after two COVID-19 cases were found with the more contagious variant over the weekend. Tianjin reported 31 local confirmed cases during this round of outbreak, in addition to 10 silent carriers, said the local government on Monday.
 

Zhang Ying, deputy director of the Tianjin Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said at a news conference on Saturday that the virus may have "been already spreading in the community for some time" before detection. Neither of the city's two Omicron cases had recently left Tianjin.
 

Tianjin took effective measures to prevent the spread of the viral infection, including a city-wide test of 14 million people, and it suspended tourist activities within the city and inter-provincial tourism starting on Monday.
 

河南安阳2病例与天津疫情同属奥密克戎毒株

当前,全球新冠肺炎累计确诊病例已突破3亿例,近一周日均新增确诊病例接近190万例,超过上一波疫情高峰的2倍,外防输入压力进一步加大。同时,国内疫情呈现多点散发、局部聚集态势,特别是1月8日天津市发现2例本土奥密克戎病例后,截至1月9日21时,天津市新增本土病例已达40例。我省安阳1月8日发现的2例本土病例,经河南省疾控中心实验室病毒全基因组测序,显示均为奥密克戎变异株BA.1分支,经分析比对,与天津市津南区现有本土疫情属同一传播链。
 

本轮疫情截至1月9日24时,安阳市累计报告确诊病例26例,均转至定点医院进行隔离治疗。累计排查密接864人,次密接631人,均已落实隔离管控措施。
