NHC Update on Cases in China

2020/04/04

At a press conference on Beijing's control and treatment efforts on Friday afternoon, Pang Xinghuo, Deputy Director of the Beijing Center for Disease Prevention and Control, noted that the highly contagious COVID-19 is rampaging across the world, even as the spread of the virus nationwide has been effectively stemmed. The number of cases worldwide has exceeded one million, with sporadic cases still reported in China. Beijing faces immense pressure to prevent both case import and domestic resurgence.

Pang cautioned the public against going to epidemic-affected countries or regions for travel or work unless absolutely necessary, as such trips carry risks of infection both abroad and during flight. Pang said that as many as 13 confirmed cases were identified on one flight. Given the high risk of infection, air travelers must wear masks throughout the entire trips back home.
