The yangtze daily weibo on january 6 news, recently, in response to the city's unknown causes of viral pneumonia, the yangtze daily reporter on issues of concern to the masses, the disease control expert, wuhan disease prevention and control center director li gang.
A: Winter and spring are the high incidence season of respiratory infectious diseases. Since the winter and spring, the medical and health institutions in Wuhan have further increased the monitoring of respiratory infectious diseases. Recently, some medical institutions in Wuhan reported that several cases of pneumonia were found to be associated with the South China Seafood City. Further investigation showed that most of these patients had fever and fatigue, some had cough and little sputum, and a small number of patients had difficulty breathing as the disease progressed. The laboratory examination showed that the total number of white blood cells was normal or decreased, the lymphocyte count was decreased, and some patients had increased liver enzyme and muscle enzyme. The above information indicates that viral pneumonia. Pathogen detection, excluding respiratory tract pathogens such as influenza, avian influenza, adenovirus, infectious atypical pneumonia (SARS) and Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome (MERS), requires further pathogen identification and etiology traceability. In order to facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of patients and disease prevention and control work, the health department called it \"unexplained viral pneumonia \".
Answer: Wuhan city health committee receives some medical institutions to find many cases of pneumonia and the case of the association with the South China Seafood City, in the city's medical institutions to carry out a search and retrospective investigation, especially to expand the scope of viral pneumonia cases of unknown causes, organized experts according to the diagnosis and treatment program to search for the case. Up to now, epidemiological surveys have shown that the expansion of the search scope, the further development of a retrospective survey of existing cases, and the continued inclusion of surveillance cases are the main reasons for the increase in the number of patients. The number of cases is expected to increase as the work proceeds.
A: Up to now, respiratory pathogens such as influenza, avian influenza, adenovirus, infectious atypical pneumonia (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) have been excluded. pathogen identification and etiology traceability work is still in progress and no clear human transmission evidence has been found.
A: Up to now, the preliminary investigation shows that there is no clear evidence of human transmission, but the clinical manifestation of the patient is viral pneumonia, there are severe cases, the etiology is not clear, the work of pathogen identification, etiology traceability and related epidemiological investigation is still being carried out further, in view of this situation, it is necessary to adopt more strict preventive public health measures such as patient isolation treatment, close contact tracing and medical observation at present, and I think this is a common practice in the international community. In the next step, with the further development of relevant work, as we know more about the disease, prevention and control measures will be adjusted and improved.
A: common viral pneumonia can occur throughout the year. For this unexplained viral pneumonia, wuhan has adopted prevention and control measures such as closure of the south china seafood market, patient isolation treatment, close contact tracing and medical observation, effectively reducing the risk of public infection. However, winter and spring season is the high incidence season of respiratory infectious diseases such as viral pneumonia, the public still needs to maintain good living habits and hygiene habits, wash hands frequently, keep indoor air circulation, properly open windows and ventilation, and vaccinate against influenza. In addition, it is a good precaution to avoid closed, airless public places and crowded places, and to wear masks if necessary.
