About 80,000 tourists stranded in Sanya
2022-08-06: [Article Link] According to news sources, during the summer season, the coastal city of Sanya is experiencing an outbreak, which is concentrated and has spread in and out of the provinces; the poison strain is the Omicron variant BA.5.1.3. How can Henan be seen to have experienced the greatest and most complex outbreak since the Omicron mutagenic epidemic this time? How can the spread be stopped quickly, and the dynamics achieved as soon as possible? About 80,000 tourists remain in Sanya. How is the tourist concentration area protected?
Heshigang, Deputy Mayor of Sanya City, Hainan Province: It is estimated that more than 80,000 tourists remain in Sanya, and at this difficult time Sanya, as a tourist city, needs more attention and services for tourists who remain in Sanya. First, in view of the current distribution of cases, which is precisely where tourists are most concentrated in the Bay of Sanya and the Bay of Yalong, we have strengthened our control over the Bay of Sanya and the Bay of Yalong, requiring a 24-hour negative nucleic acid certificate in order to ensure that tourist concentrations are protected from, or reduced in, the possibility of, the virus infection. Second, travel-related sectors such as travel, including businesses such as hotel associations, are required to make efforts to provide services and appease tourists by informing them of their policies. At the same time, special courses have been set up in the Ministry of Tourism, special lines have been set up to deal with requests from tourists, coordinate some of their travel-related issues and provide them with appropriate services. Tourists are now certified to enter and leave Sanya on nucleic acid.
The deputy mayor of Sanya City in Hainan Province, Ho Shigang, is actually a relatively independent unit, so we've all set up a stop at the intersection. When visitors from the field arrived, they still had access to his hotel reservations on the basis of negative nucleic acid certificates, as well as tickets to Sanya and train tickets, and checked in, which required a nucleic acid test. So we have to make sure that there are no outbreaks in these places, no cases, and that there are more tourists to control them so that they are not affected by the spread of the epidemic. How can the epidemic be dealt with when it has spilled over into Hainan Province and beyond?
Henan Province, Deputy Mayor of Sanya City, Ho Shigang: In the wake of the outbreak, we found that Omicron mutagenic strains were not prevalent in the country, that the previous two months had been characterized by tourist peaks, that millions of tourists had entered Sanya, and that, following a genetic sequence comparison, the virus could be removed from a large number of domestic visitors, and that, in the face of the new virus, we had to do a lot to prevent spillovers and counter-proliferation at the national, provincial and provincial levels. At present, we understand that the virus has spread to Chongqing, Guangdong and eight municipalities and districts in Hainan Province, which has the following practices:
A special outreach programme has been set up at the provincial level.
The measure of leaving Sanya city was upgraded to require a negative nucleic acid certificate for 48 hours to leave Sanya city, so that the virus could not be taken elsewhere.
