Beijing CDC: Risk Extremely Low for People with No Contact with Xinfadi within Specified Time Range

2020/06/21

At a press conference on COVID-19 response held on 20 June, the Beijing Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) provided the latest updates on the epidemiological investigations of new confirmed cases, and stressed that all confirmed cases are now being treated in the designated hospital.

According to the Beijing CDC, the city government is organizing community-based nucleic acid tests (NATs) in light of risk levels, and those concerned should take the tests as arranged in an orderly manner. The CDC urges those who have recently been to the Xinfadi Wholesale Market to follow the containment measures enforced by their communities, report to the authorities as required, stay at home, and enhance personal protection.

The CDC noted that the results of recent screenings and epidemiological investigations show that infection risk is extremely low for those who did not have any contact with Xinfadi from 30 May to 12 June, and hence there is no need to rush to book for NATs. Instead, they are advised to follow the instructions of their communities, take tests if arranged, wait in line in an orderly manner and avoid overcrowding at the test sites. Besides, they should also wear masks when going out, and wash hands after outdoor activities in order to lower the risk of infection.
