THEChinese doctors who were at the forefront of the fight against pandemic of the virus SARS–CoV-2, in Wuhan, epicenter of the viral outbreak, believe that not wearing a mask in a country affected “it is not a cultural difference, it is stupid”.
Who says it is Wang Xinghuan, directorhospital general Leishenshan, one of the two hospitals that were built in record time, in Wuhan, to welcome the first victims of Covid-19 in the world.
“If they are not used, the epidemic cannot be controlled,” he added.
For this health professional, what should be done to mitigate the viral outbreak can be summarized as: mandatory mask for everyone, confinement mandatory and quarantine in spaces dedicated to lighter, suspicious cases or in contact with patients.
The hospital Leishenshan, which has 1,500 beds and reached 2,011 patients in the worst phase of pandemic, is now with only 15 patients and will no longer be operational from next week. This hospital and its ‘twin’, Huoshenshan, will both be dismantled.
Those responsible, however, ensure that, even if the situation has been mitigated in Wuhan and that the quarantine has ended, you should not let your guard down. Local authorities continue to detect cases asymptomatic and has 44 suspected cases under observation. “The watchncia remains fundamental, “said Wang at a press conference this Saturday, quoted by El País.
China, it is recalled, has registered 46 new cases of infection for the new coronavirus42 of which came from abroad. Despite the new confirmed cases, the total number of infected active in the Asian country it continues to fall, now standing at 1,089.
