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.

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

捷思英达完成近亿元A+轮融资,聚明创投领投

捷思英达完成近亿元A+轮融资,聚明创投领投
原标题:捷思英达完成近亿元A+轮融资,聚明创投领投 投资界6月15日消息,捷思英达医药宣布完成近亿元人民币A+轮融资,本轮融资由聚明创投领投,倚锋资本、国发创投、致道资本和东方富海跟投。本轮融资主要用于推动捷思英达ERK激酶抑制剂JSI-1187开展I期临床试验,以及建立以抗肿瘤新药为核心的研发管线。捷思英达曾在2018年获得博远资本领投的A轮融资。 捷思英达位于上海张江科学城国际医学园区,专注于小分子原创抗癌新药的研发。捷思英达采用自主研发和项目引进齐头并进的“双轮驱动”商业模式,加快研发管线的建立。公司研发团队及时应用国际知名临床专家最新发现的药物作用机制,开展国际首创的抗癌新药研发,努力解决国内外肿瘤患者高度未满足的临床需求。 JSI-1187是捷思英达自主研发的口服小分子细胞外信号调控蛋白激酶1/2(ERK1/2)激酶抑制剂,于今年初获得了FDA的临床许可。目前全球尚无ERK激酶抑制剂获批上市,进展最快的项目也仅处于II期阶段,包括优立替尼(BioMed Valley Discoveries/Vertex)、LY3214996(礼来)、LTT462(诺华)。 RAS-RAF-MEK-ERK信号转导通路是与肿瘤高度相关的MAPK(丝裂原活化蛋白激酶)信号路径的4条分支路线中最经典的一条。目前已知MAPK信号通路极易发生突变,在非小细胞肺癌、黑色素瘤和胰腺癌等肿瘤中的突变率达到80%以上。目前已经有多种针对MAPK上游激酶的抑制剂上市,包括BRAF抑制剂索拉非尼、维莫非尼,MEK抑制剂曲美替尼、考比替尼等,证明了通过抑制MAPK这条信号通路对抗肿瘤的有效性。ERK是MAPK信号通路上的一个关键下游蛋白,目前的研究结果显示EKR抑制剂能够有效阻断RAS-RAF-MEK-ERK信号通路,同时能够有效解决上游蛋白BRAF、MEK突变而导致的获得性耐药或者RAS抑制剂难成药的问题,因此有望帮助解决众多肿瘤患者的潜在临床需求。 捷思英达董事长和首席执行官张劲涛博士表示: “我们非常感谢投资人对捷思英达研发策略、项目和技术的认可和支持。本轮融资将帮助我们进一步开发具有全球知识产权的创新药,在美国和中国开展临床试验,让国内外肿瘤患者从捷思英达研发的新药中受益。”

曾刚:个人信贷利率下调有利于刺激消费,预计2季度信贷将会较快增长

曾刚:个人信贷利率下调有利于刺激消费,预计2季度信贷将会较快增长
原标题:曾刚:个人信贷利率下调有利于刺激消费,预计2季度信贷将会较快增长 国家金融与发展实验室副主任 曾刚 出品 | 搜狐智库 编辑 | 郑青春 近期,国有大行、股份制银行纷纷下调个人信用贷款利率,争抢个人信用消费市场。比如工行“融e借”、招行“闪电贷”等,均先后下调贷款利率,有的优质客户利率甚至低至3.78%。商业银行以降价、折扣的策略力推个人信用贷款,主要原因有哪些?是否能够进一步激发居民消费? 国家金融与发展实验室副主任曾刚认为,个人贷款利率下调有三方面原因:一是响应政策的引导,第二是资金成本的下行,第三是从银行竞争的考虑。 曾刚表示,一方面,政策在引导银行强化对实体经济的支持,降低实体经济的融资成本,个人消费类的贷款,对整个实体经济促消费、稳增长有很大好处。从这个角度来讲,个人信用贷款利率的下调也是响应整个政策支持实体经济,让银行让利的号召。 另外,为了保持实体经济融资成本的下行,整个央行的货币政策流动性相对比较充裕,银行负债的资金成本,包括在市场发债的成本都在下行,资金成本的下行和资产端的下调为信用贷款的利率创造了条件。 第三,银行业务自身发展的需要,在疫情影响下,实体经济的需求可能会受到一定影响,市场竞争在加剧,因为银行机构要发展,相互之间的竞争是客观存在的,所以通过信用贷款利率的下行去吸引更多的客户,夯实客户基础。这种竞争策略也是银行在今年疫情下的一个选择策略。 今年以来,受疫情影响,个人消费贷款大幅萎缩。降低之后对市场将会产生哪些影响?曾刚表示,下调利率一方面能降低借款人的负担,另一方面也能在一定程度上刺激消费贷款的增长,而消费性贷款的增长也可能会刺激到消费的增长,对增长经济有好处。 “后续能否刺激,还需要去观察。居民受到就业方面的影响,对未来收入的预期会制约到他们消费贷信贷的需要,短期消费的下行是肯定的。”但曾刚认为,随着经济逐步的恢复,居民的消费能力和欲望得到进一步的回升后,需求还是有上升恢复的可能性。 曾刚进一步说,需求恢复后,如果银行能提供相对更为低廉的资金支持,显然对进一步发挥消费信贷,对消费支持作用会起到一定的好处。 那么在降低贷款利率的同时,是否可能流入楼市和股市?曾刚坦言,一定的低成本资金流到股市、楼市,甚至去出现空转套利的情况,客观存在这种可能性。 对此,他表示,银行需要提升自己的管理,确保消费信用贷的资金,流向消费领域,而不会被挪用。因此银行需要对资金的流向、业务流程,以及对贷款审核方面必须要坚持审慎的原则。从监管角度来讲,要强化资金挪用问题的合规审查。按照现有的监管规则,强化监管执法的力度加大违规的这种处罚的力度,也能起到一定的修正作用。 对于未来整体信贷的走势,曾刚预计,货币政策应该会继续维持在一个相对比较宽松的状态,信贷的增长速度将会比较快。由于今年整个政策要求,政府工作报告要求今年M2和社融增速要显著高于去年,那意味着信贷货币的投放增长速度就一定要维持在相对比较快的速度,才能够对实体经济产生必要的支持。 他表示,从需求层面上看,随着疫情进入常态化,后续复工复产逐渐正常化,信贷的需求也会促发起来,再加上相应宏观上财政方面的政策,它会导致整个供求两方面都会维持货币信贷相对快速的增长,预计2季度的信贷增长速度应该是不低的。 “如果实体经济需要,可能还会进一步加大规模,或者规模上的要求。总体会保持稳健的货币政策,根据实体经济灵活采取政策,而不是一下把子弹打光。总体上来讲,货币政策的空间还有,我们的这个工具还是很充分的。”曾刚说。

刘元春:经济数据反弹具有很强“欺骗性”,谨防出现政策误判_外贸

刘元春:经济数据反弹具有很强“欺骗性”,谨防出现政策误判_外贸
刘元春:经济数据反弹具有很强“欺骗性”,谨防呈现方针误判 我国人民大学副校长 刘元春 点击进入搜狐财经直击|我国宏观经济论坛专题 出品 | 搜狐智库 修改 | 徐小奇 6月12日,人大举办的我国宏观经济论坛在线上举办,搜狐财经直播。我国人民大学副校长刘元春表明,最近,整个预期发生了许多的分解。咱们要高度警惕一些数据反弹所带来的短期错觉,对方针定位和下一步施行做出更清晰的规划,不可以左右摇摆。 “榜首,官方数据反响的复工复产以及宏观经济进程十分好,可是民间底层调研却显现情况仍然很糟糕。因而,使得咱们关于局势的判别呈现分解。” “一些大型项目、大型企业,尤其是国有企业的达产率十分好,可是中小企业却十分差,特别是传统的小微企业。这说明一揽子复苏方针的传递进程,有时滞、先后的差异,呈现这种分解是比较正常的。”刘元春说。 其次,刘元春指出,内贸和外贸也存在不同。我国4-5月份出口数据仍然正添加,其间5月同比添加1.4%。所以咱们的根本判别是外部环境的剧烈冲击还没到来,乃至是最困难的时分现已过去了,由于外资外贸的数据比预期要好。 “但内贸的情况一向很疲软,即便咱们采取了一系列的影响方针、扶持方针,内贸和外贸的差异也呈现了很大的分解。这会导致咱们现在一些方针性判别呈现失误。”刘元春说。 刘元春表明,在宽钱银、宽信贷的效果下呈现了结构性存款的套利行为,呈现了资金类循环在金融圈打转的情况。“有人以为这是由于流动性众多,但也有人解说是由于金融和实体之间的收益差过度拉大,才呈现这种情况。” 刘元春表明,这两种知道直接带来的问题是,前者以为,咱们的流动性不宜这么过度放松,由于它或许会引起泡沫问题,而应该缩短。 “第二种观点或许引出这样的定论,由于现在金融收益率过高,实体经济收益率过低,导致资金在金融层面打转。处理的方法不是收回资金,而是应当在价格上面进一步地做文章。使实体经济和金融这一收益率差价可以进一步缩短,然后添加流动性关于实体经济的渗透性。”刘元春说。 他以为,以上的不同和不合使现在整个商场呈现了达观派和极度的悲观派。但达观的判别是极点过错的,乃至是十分有害的。 刘元春解说,一些大型企业、项目的复苏只能反映咱们的行政才能很强。且外贸的起稳情况实践并没有反映整个国际疲软的情况。我国外贸遭到整个国际深度下滑的影响才刚刚开始。 “即便大型企业、大型复工复产率到达99%,但用电量添加速度和货运量并没有常态化。因而,咱们看到现在所看到的仅仅一种行政性现象,而不是在商场常态化运转中所呈现出来的商场运转水平。”刘元春说。 刘元春着重,必定要对最近数据的改变进行高度警惕,由于它具有很强的“欺骗性”。 “所以,最近咱们或许要高度警惕一些数据反弹所带来的短期错觉。有必要要从中期的视点,特别是从表里叠加的未来危险视点,对咱们的方针定位和下一步施行做出更清晰的规划。谨防在一些方针的掌握上呈现很强的偏误,不可以左右摇摆。”刘元春说。 【搜狐智库:集合学者与企业家才智,评脉经济趋势。如有意投稿或联络现场报道、访谈、节目协作事宜,请发邮件至zhikucaijing@sohu.com】
