On November 11, the State Council issued the Notice on Further Optimizing the Prevention and Control Measures of COVID-19 Epidemic and Scientifically and Accurately Doing a Good Job in Prevention and Control (hereinafter referred to as the Notice) in response to the Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of novel coronavirus Pneumonia.
The Notice stipulates that the areas without epidemic situation shall carry out nucleic acid testing for risk posts and key personnel in strict accordance with the scope determined in the ninth version of the prevention and control plan, and shall not expand the scope of nucleic acid testing. Generally, nucleic acid testing for all staff is not carried out according to administrative regions, but only when the source of infection and transmission chain are not clear, the community transmission time is long, and the epidemic base is not clear. Formulate specific implementation methods to standardize nucleic acid testing, reiterate and refine relevant requirements, and correct unscientific practices such as “two inspections a day” and “three inspections a day”.
At about 12:00 p.m. on November 11, Sanya City, Hainan Province, issued a notice on regional nucleic acid testing, saying that all residents and tourists in Sanya City will be sampled on November 12. Those who fail to take samples as required will be given a yellow code. A few hours after the issuance of the Notice, Sanya again issued a notice stating that, according to the requirements of the Notice, the previous notice will no longer be implemented, and nucleic acid testing will be carried out regularly on the 12th.
In addition, Zhenping County, Shaanxi Province, Fuzhou City, Fujian Province, Guangchang County, Jiangxi Province, Yanji City, Jilin Province, Hefei City, Anhui Province, Shanghai City and other cities announced the adjustment of current epidemic prevention policies and the cancellation of regional full staff nucleic acid testing.
