Beijing swift to curb new COVID cases

Beijing swift to curb new COVID cases
Residents undergo nucleic acid tests at a stadium in Beijing’s Xicheng district on Sunday. (DU YANG/CHINA NEWS SERVICE)Authorities ramp up testing to cover key areas, population as level of alert risesBeijing is taking swift steps to curb a new cluster of local COVID-19 infections that has led to more than 50 new cases in the past four days, including shuttering a major wholesale market linked to all new infections, imposing a partial lockdown in its vicinity and ramping up mass testing and screening in key areas.The capital reported eight new confirmed cases as of 7 am on Sunday and added 36 new infections on Saturday, with the majority found in its southern Fengtai district but also affecting five other districts.A large number of the newly confirmed patients work at or have been to Fengtai’s Xinfadi wholesale market, which sells a wide range of agricultural, meat and seafood products, and the remaining ones had direct or indirect exposure to the market, the city’s health commission said.On Thursday, Beijing reported its first domestic infection in nearly two months-a 52-year-old man who had not been outside Beijing for the past two weeks but visited the seafood and meat hall of the market on June 3.On Friday, six more people, either workers at the market or people who had recently visited it, were confirmed with having contracted the virus. On the same day, in a citywide check of agricultural product wholesale markets and large supermarkets, only 40 environmental samples taken from the Xinfadi market tested positive for the virus, the commission said.All confirmed patients in Beijing are mildly or moderately ill, except for one patient being classified as a severe case on Friday and one whose condition has not been revealed, commission data shows.The State Council’s Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism said during a meeting on Sunday that the strictest epidemiological survey and comprehensive investigation into the origin of the source will be rolled out in Xinfadi and its nearby areas.The meeting stressed expanding testing to cover all key areas and key populations while tightening control of movement in affected communities, launching rigorous screening and enforcing centralized quarantine of all confirmed cases and their close contacts, suspected cases as well as people with fever.Precautions against hospital-acquired infections must be strengthened and all agricultural product markets, catering venues and related logistics facilities nationwide will be disinfected, according to the meeting.Xu Hejian, a spokesman for the municipal government, said on Sunday: “Beijing has entered an extraordinary period. We should draw lessons from the pain, remain alert against the risk of the epidemic at all times and resolutely cut off the spread of the virus.””All personnel in the Xinfadi market and nearby residents will receive nucleic acid tests and be put under medical observation. Those who have had close contact with workers at the market since May 30 should take the initiative to report to their employers and communities, and go through testing,” Xu said.From 3 am on Saturday, the market has been shut down for probes into its contamination and infection risk, as well as cleaning and disinfection.Eleven residential areas nearby are now closed to nonresidents, and several primary schools and kindergartens near the market are suspended, Chu Junwei, acting chief of Fengtai, said on Saturday.Chen Yankai, deputy director of Beijing’s market supervision administration, said on Sunday that 252 agricultural product markets that are in operation are urged to conduct disinfection on a daily basis and five suspended trade fairs have also been disinfected.Zhang Jie, deputy chief of Fengtai, said on Sunday that it plans to set up 24 nucleic acid testing kiosks near the Xinfadi market, aiming to test 46,000 residents living nearby, and “10,881 of them had already been tested as of Sunday afternoon”.Gao Xiaojun, a spokesman for the Beijing Health Commission, said the city has 98 testing facilities, capable of carrying out over 90,000 nucleic acid tests in one day.To further tighten screening at fever clinics across the city, Gao said on Sunday that all people who visit a hospital for fever will take both nucleic acid and antibody tests, and receive a CT scan and routine blood tests. Inquires into their movement records will also be increased.”Hospitals where confirmed cases had visited are required to comprehensively screen medical workers or other personnel who had came into contact with them and to properly disinfect wards,” he said, adding that the test results for 79 hospital workers so far had all been negative.On Saturday, the city government also announced that all interprovincial tour groups and sports competition events will be halted. Some tourist attractions, including the Lama Temple, have also been temporarily closed off.The Chinese mainland reported 57 new confirmed infections on Saturday, including 36 locally transmitted cases found in Beijing and two in Liaoning province, while 19 imported cases of infection were detected in Guangdong province, Chongqing and Shanghai.Provincial health authorities in Liaoning said the two new local cases added on Saturday were close contacts with one of the infections added on Friday in Beijing. They were asymptomatic at the beginning but re-diagnosed as confirmed cases on Saturday.Nationwide, a total of 129 patients were under treatment as of Sunday and the number of accumulative confirmed infections had risen to 83,132, with 4,634 deaths.Following the new infections in Beijing, a number of regions across the country are taking measures to monitor travelers from the capital.Parts of neighboring Tianjin and Hebei province have released notices requiring thorough screening of people who had traveled to affected areas in Beijing and calling for tighter inspections of fresh produce, meat and seafood products.Tongliao, a city in the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, said all people who come from areas of Beijing that are at medium or high risk of the virus’ spread will be placed under centralized quarantine for 14 days and take multiple tests.Health authorities in Suzhou, Jiangsu province, said on Sunday that people are discouraged from traveling for nonessential reasons to areas seeing new infections.

Archaeologists in East China unearth 8,000-year-old prehistoric relic

Archaeologists in East China unearth 8,000-year-old prehistoric relic
Pictured are items unearthed from the 8,000-year-old prehistoric shell mound in Yuyao, East China’s Zhejiang province. (Photo/Xinhua) A prehistoric shell mound believed to be 8,000 years old has been discovered in Yuyao, East China’s Zhejiang Province, providing important research materials for studying marine development and how early humans adapted to the marine environment.The shell mound was discovered at the site of the Jingtoushan ruins in the province, and is the earliest and most deeply buried shell mound site unearthed in the coastal areas of China, local authorities said on Saturday.The Jingtoushan ruins in the city of Yuyao administered by Ningbo city were firstly discovered during a drilling survey for factory construction in 2013.Tests at the lab of Peking University and three other domestic and overseas labs concluded that the site is between 7,800 and 8,300 years old, 1,000 years older than the city’s Hemudu culture ruins, which are believed to be the origins of humanity in Ningbo.A large number of exquisite artefacts and leftovers of shellfish have been unearthed since the digging began in September of 2019.Among the unearthed are cockles, oysters, mussels, clams and spiral shells.Items such as pottery, stone tools, wood, bones and shellfish, and the remains of early rice cultivation, as well as abundant aquatic, terrestrial plants and animal remains have also been unearthed.By far the deepest buried and earliest site in southeast China’s coastal areas, the site could be direct evidence of the sea level 8,000 years ago and provides important research materials for studying the evolution of the natural environment and how early humans adapted to the marine environment.It also provides materials to explore the source of Hemudu culture and to establish the nature of pre-Hemudu culture.Zhao Hui, a professor at Peking University’s school of archeology and museology, said at a press conference in Ningbo that the civilizations represented by Jingtoushan and Hemudu culture exhibited differences and similarities.Investigation suggested Jingtou mountain culture was probably a predecessor of Hemudu, Zhao said.Liu Zheng, a member of the China Cultural Relics Academy, told the Global Times that with ample evidence to represent a civilization, the official 5,000 years of continuous Chinese civilization might be extended to 8,000 years.In 2019, the archeological ruins of the city of Liangzhu inZhejianggained worldwide recognition and prompted Chinese officials to cite them as proof of at least 5,000 years of continuous Chinese civilization.Hemudu culture plays an extremely important role in the Yangtze River area and the whole of southern China. The discovery of the Hemudu site in 1973 established a new historical view that both the Yangtze River basin and the Yellow River basin are cradles of Chinese civilization.The shell mound, a type of ancient human settlement site, is characterized by a large number of discarded shells left over from the food eaten by ancient humans.

3 scientists win World Space Award for lunar mission

3 scientists win World Space Award for lunar mission

(Photo/clep.org.cn)Three Chinese space scientists involved in the nation’s Chang’e 4 lunar exploration mission have been given the World Space Award, the highest award of the International Astronautical Federation, according to a Chinese space authority.The Lunar Exploration and Space Program Center under the China National Space Administration announced on Thursday that after two rounds of voting, the IAF decided to confer the 2020 IAF World Space Award to Wu Weiren, chief designer of China’s Chang’e lunar programs and academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering; Yu Dengyun, deputy chief designer of Chang’e programs and deputy director of science and technology at China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp; and Sun Zezhou, chief designer of the Chang’e 4 probe and a top researcher at the China Academy of Space Technology.This is the first time the international organization has given the award to Chinese scientists, the center said in a statement.According to the IAF, the World Space Award is presented for an outstanding contribution or contributions in space science, space technology, space medicine, space law or space management of exceptional impact to the world’s progress in astronautics.This award is given once per year and only when nominations of world-class outstanding merit are received.It is preferably granted to a single person but may be awarded to two or more people if there was a joint effort in the contribution, the federation explained.The Chang’e 4 robotic probe, which consists of an unmovable lander and the Yutu 2 rover, was lifted atop a Long March 3B rocket in December 2018 at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan province, marking the country’s fourth lunar exploration and the world’s first expedition to the far side of the moon, which never faces Earth.The probe made a soft landing on the far side on Jan 3 and then released the Yutu 2 to roam and survey the landing site in the South Pole-Aitken basin, the largest and deepest known basin in the solar system.Currently, the lander and the rover are in their 18th lunar-night dormancy session. The Yutu 2 has traveled nearly 448 meters on the lunar soil.The scientific tasks of the Chang’e 4 mission include low-frequency radio astronomical observation and surveying the terrain and landforms around the landing site. As no probe had ever landed on the far side before Chang’e 4, all scientific information obtained during the mission would be new to the world.China’s next lunar probe, Chang’e 5, will weigh about 8.2 metric tons and will be the largest and heaviest lunar probe ever built by the country. It will consist of four components-an orbiter, a lander, an ascender and a re-entry module.

Funeral honors George Floyd, Americans demand racial justice

Funeral honors George Floyd, Americans demand racial justice

(Photo by Chengyue Lao/Xinhua) As a final farewell, family members and friends gathered on Tuesday at a private funeral in Houston, Texas and shared their sweet memories of 46-year-old African American George Floyd, who was suffocated to death in police custody two weeks ago.Floyd’s niece Brooke Williams touched the audience’s hearts with her emotional speech, appealing for “no more hate crimes.”She said she saw no remorse in the white police officer when he pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes, “watching my uncle’s soul leave his body.””This is not just a murder, but a hate crime,” she added.A short film was played at the funeral, showing a montage of Floyd’s photos depicting his life and also the protests around the world following his death.Though the funeral was meant to be a private event mainly for Floyd’s family members, friends and school mates in Houston where he grew up and spent most of his lifetime, half of the 500 guests were public figures who came to pay their respects.”We honor him because when he took his last breath, the rest of us are now able to breathe,” said Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, declaring June 9 as “George Floyd Day” in the city.In a pre-recorded video broadcast at the funeral, former Vice President Joe Biden sent condolences to Floyd’s family whom he met before the funeral.Talking about racial equality in the country, Biden said, “Why in this nation do too many black Americans wake up knowing they could lose their life in the course of just living their life?… When there is justice for George Floyd, we will truly be on our way to racial justice in America.”The funeral was held at the Fountain of Praise Church, where Floyd and his family used to worship when he lived in the city.Due to social distancing requirements, only about 500 guests attended the funeral. But people from the city and other places gathered around the church in the heat prior to the funeral to pay respect to Floyd.After the funeral, Floyd’s golden casket was transported in a car and then in a white horse-drawn carriage to a Houston cemetery where he was buried next to his mother.The family requested total privacy when they lay Floyd to rest.Along the way from the church to the burial site, hundreds of people waited to say farewell to Floyd. Many road railings were decorated with ribbons and flowers.A public viewing for Floyd was organized on Monday at the same African American church in Houston, bringing more than 6,300 people to pay tribute.Last week, two memorials were held in Minneapolis, Minnesota where Floyd died, and Raeford, North Carolina where Floyd was born.Hundreds of people paid their tribute to Floyd by laying wreaths at the memorials.Floyd moved from North Carolina to Houston’s Third Ward community as a baby, and grew up and spent most of his lifetime in the fourth largest U.S. city which he called “home.”Demonstrations and riots have spread to cities across the United States after a video went viral of George Floyd being suffocated to death by a white police officer in Minneapolis on May 25.Since Floyd’s death, Houstonians have remembered him in various ways in his community where the grief can still be felt.Last week, a “big Floyd” mural was painted on the wall in the Third Ward by a local artist. People of all colors came to pay tribute, sending flowers, cards and balloons.”I feel like I’m coming by to pay my respect,” Eryka Gomez told local TV KPRC 2. “It’s sad. It’s a loss for the community.”Also in Houston, a big sign painted with his name was seen at a busy intersection of highways. Video clips from the Internet showed that a big sign written with the words “George Floyd” replaced an old iconic sign of “Be Someone.”

Open gateway for commerce across oceans

Open gateway for commerce across oceans
The Morning Laura, a cargo ship packed with 430 imported vehicles from Qatar, arrives at Xiuying Port in Haikou, Hainan province, on Feb 16, after a 16-day voyage. It is the first vessel to carry imported cars since the implementation of the Free Trade Zone policy in Hainan. (YANG GUANYU/XINHUA)With free trade port, new investments, emerging industries, South China’s Hainan province to complement Hong KongDubai, Singapore, Hong Kong … Which city is best for shopping? Choice will become harder as South China’s Hainan province is set to join the list of not-to-miss shopping havens.Add to that the island’s reputation as a tourist paradise-tropical geography, pristine coastline, year-round sunshine, balmy weather, and sandy beaches.There’s more coming up. Free trade port. Investments. High-tech industries. Industrial parks. Cultural elements. Entertainment hot spots.Small wonder, global investors, top-end talent, foreign tourists, and mainland travelers are all redrawing their plans to include Hainan as a priority, never mind the overhang of the COVID-19 pandemic’s economic fallout.Lin Nianxiu, vice-minister of the National Development and Reform Commission, said during a recent news conference that the first phase of the government’s new master plan will make preparations and lay the foundation for the proposed free trade port system before 2025. Focus will be on liberalization and facilitation of trade and investment.”We will boost the free and efficient flow of various production factors and strive to make breakthroughs in around three years, which will lay a solid foundation for the island-wide special customs clearance operation in 2025,” Lin said.The second phase will focus on comprehensively promoting the implementation of opening-up and free trade port policies before 2035.According to the government’s plan, the free trade port system and operations in Hainan will be more mature by 2035, and high-level process supervision will be mostly built to achieve free trade and investment, free cross-border capital flows, free and convenient transportation and access for people, and safe and orderly flow of data.By the middle of the century, a high-level free trade port with strong international influence will be fully established.Lin said it is necessary to learn from the experiences of globally renowned free trade ports like Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai. The island of Hainan will further work with the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to boost prosperity.”Hainan differs from Hong Kong in location and industry focus, playing a complementary role instead of competing with Hong Kong,” Lin stressed. “We should give full play to Hainan’s advantages like rich natural resources, unique geographical location and the vast domestic market and hinterland, focusing on the development of tourism, modern services and high-tech sectors.”Cheng Shi, chief economist and managing director of ICBC International, said Hainan would not overtake Hong Kong’s status as an international financial center, and the two regions will be mutually complementary economically.”Hong Kong’s pillar industries are trade, finance, real estate, tourism and services while Hainan will mainly focus on developing emerging sectors such as high-tech industries,” Cheng said. 1 2 3 Next Page

Japan’s Kobe city to return giant panda to China as lease expires

Japan’s Kobe city to return giant panda to China as lease expires
Female giant panda Tan Tan at Kobe Oji Zoo in Japan. (Photo credit: Kobe Oji Zoo) The Japanese city of Kobe will return a giant female panda rented from China for breeding purposes as the lease agreement is set to expire in July, the city said Tuesday.Tan Tan, the 24-year-old panda, has the equivalent age of between 60 and 70 in human years. It came to Kobe Oji Zoo in 2000 and bred in 2008 through artificial insemination.The departure of Tan Tan will bring the total number of pandas in Japan to nine, with three in Ueno Zoological Gardens in Tokyo and six in Adventure World in Wakayama Prefecture in western Japan.”I want to thank Tan Tan, who came after the Great Hanshin Earthquake and gave cheer to quake-affected children and many other citizens,” Hiroyuki Ueyama, head of the zoo, said in a press conference.As flight schedules remain uncertain in the COVID-19 pandemic, the zoo said it has not decided exactly when the panda will leave Japan.Tan Tan came to the zoo under a 10-year lease, but her stay was prolonged after the Chinese side agreed to extend the contract for five years twice.The zoo is currently closed but plans to reopen on June 1 with a limited number of 2,000 visitors per day to avoid the spread of the virus, it said.

Experts answer key questions about COVID-19

Experts answer key questions about COVID-19
A makeshift wholesale market in Beijing, June 14, 2020. (Photo/Xinhua)  Special: Battle Against Novel Coronavirus Wu Zunyou, chief epidemiologist at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and Zeng Guang, a senior researcher at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, answer questions about the new COVID-19 cases reported in BeijingWhy is Xinfadi wholesale market suspected to be the source of the latest COVID-19 outbreak in Beijing?Wu: Normally, the lower the temperature, the longer virus can survive. In such wholesale markets, seafood is stored frozen, enabling the virus to survive for a long time, resulting in increased chances of its transmission to people. Additionally, a large number of people enter and exit such places, and a single person entering with the coronavirus can cause the spread of the virus in these places. As all the confirmed cases in this outbreak are found to be linked with the market, attention was given to the market.What is the source of transmission of the virus in the market? Is it people, foodstuffs such as meat, fish or other things sold in the market?Wu: It is very difficult to conclude the exact source of the transmission. We cannot conclude that the salmon sold in the market is the source just based on the finding that cutting boards for salmon in the market tested positive for the virus. There may be other possibilities such as that one owner of a cutting board was infected, or other food sold by an owner of a cutting board tainted it. Or a buyer from other cities caused the virus’ spread in the market. The flow of people in the market was big, and many things were sold. It is not likely the exact source of transmission will be found in a short time.Before the outbreak, Beijing had reported no new locally transmitted COVID-19 cases for more than 50 days, and the coronavirus should not have originated in the market. If it is confirmed after investigation that none of the new cases of people who tested positive for the virus got infected in Beijing, then it is likely that the virus was introduced into Beijing from overseas or other places in China via tainted goods.How big is the risk of further spread of the virus in Beijing?Wu: Right now, the key task for COVID-19 control and prevention in Beijing is to identify the source of transmission and find all close contacts of confirmed cases to prevent further spread of the virus. Beijing has been responding very quickly this time, and I have full confidence in epidemic control in Beijing.Arduous efforts are needed to reduce risks of further spread of the virus, including dispatching a large number of professionals to search for close contacts of confirmed patients and conducting lab analysis on the virus samples as quickly as possible.Based on the known information, the rebound of the outbreak has been largely limited to areas surrounding Xinfadi market, and the virus has not spread to the whole area of Beijing and threatened its total population of more than 20 million.What should Beijing residents pay particular attention to in light of the epidemic control situation?Wu: There is no need for the public to panic, as we have accumulated rich experience in COVID-19 epidemic control and treatment of patients.The city authority has published the movement path of all the confirmed patients, so residents who find they have been to affected places can pay more attention to their health condition and receive nucleic acid tests if necessary. For other residents, it is still necessary to maintain good habits such as wearing masks in places that lack ventilation and frequently washing their hands.Is it necessary to conduct nucleic acid tests for coronavirus on the whole population of Beijing?Zeng: No. But expanded testing is required to cover places including stores in residential compounds where goods from Xinfadi wholesale market are sold, and other residential compounds and restaurants linked with Xinfadi in the city.Please feel free to contact us by sending your questions to question@chinadaily.com.cn or commenting on China Daily app. We will ask experts to answer them.

Aging urban residential communities in 23 regions to be renovated

Aging urban residential communities in 23 regions to be renovated
Workers renovate an old residential building in Xi’an, Northwest China’s Shaanxi province, on April 1, 2020. (Photo/Xinhua)Some 23 regions in China have issued work plans to renovate aging urban residential communities this year, including what and where to upgrade, funding sources and related industrial chain, according to a Wednesday report from 21 Century Business Herald.The renovation projects will prioritize communities built before the end of 2000, said the State Council in its executive meeting on April 14.At the same time, some regions have more extensive plans. In East China’s Fujian province, some communities, blocks and districts built before 2010 and with a lack of infrastructure will be transformed. In eastern China’s Shandong province, the goal is to complete the renovation of old communities built before 2005.In this year’s government work report, China said it would begin the renovation of 39,000 old urban residential communities – doubling last year’s target to benefit 7 million households – and support the upgrading of plumbing and wiring and the installation of elevators in old residential buildings.There were nearly 160,000 old residential communities across the nation that were home to over 42 million households, according to the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development.The renovations cover a range of aspects, according to 21 Century Business Herald, from basic public utilities such as tap water, electricity, gas and roads, to supporting infrastructure like elevators, parking and security facilities. Public service is also considered during the upgrade to meet the residents’ needs, such as aged care, day care for infants and healthcare.According to the State Council, funds for renovation will be shared by the country’s authorities, residents and private capital, and the central government also will offer subsidies. Funds raised by local governments via the issuance of special bonds will give priority to renovation projects.Land value-added gains serve as a major source of income for the special bond of renovation, which means house and land values are improved through upgrading, said Li Qilin, chief economist of Yuekai Securities, as reported by 21 Century Business Herald.The upcoming renewal also will boost consumption, like coating and waterproofing materials, according to the Wednesday report.
