The best way to prevent the new crown is to wear a mask
On the evening of May 4th, at the invitation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Health and Safety Commission, Academician Zhong Nanshan, director of the National Center for Respiratory Diseases Clinical Medical Research Center and leader of the National Health and Safety Commission high-level expert group, made a video connection with overseas students to answer the "epidemic" solution Confused.
According to Zhong Nanshan, during the special anti-epidemic period, the epidemic situation in mainland China has stabilized for more than a month. Most overseas countries are in the first stage, and even a few countries have been on the rise. The biggest feature of China is the "four early" measures to the community and everyone, early detection, early diagnosis, early isolation, early treatment, the most important thing is self-protection. East Asia including South Korea, Japan, and Singapore have all done well in the "four early" measures.
Zhong Nanshan pointed out that for the new coronavirus, it was not known at the beginning that it was highly contagious to humans. In terms of infectiousness index, the general influenza is 1, SARS is close to 2, the Middle East respiratory syndrome is 1.5, and the new coronavirus is 3. The views and practices on infectious diseases are different between China and the West, but everyone realizes that it is very contagious. Although there is no great breakthrough in the treatment of new coronavirus, there are many adjuvant treatment methods. It is not easy to have major drug discovery in such a short time. The best way to prevent it is to keep a distance and wear a mask.
Regarding whether there is a sequelae in New Coronary Pneumonia, Zhong Nanshan responded that New Coronary Pneumonia patients recovered well after being discharged from hospital. As long as there is no underlying disease, the recovery will be very fast. Even some basic diseases are better than SARS. The patients he saw generally recovered well, including the lungs. In SARS 17 years ago, some patients still had pulmonary fibrosis six months to a year later. The lung fibrosis of patients with new crowns is not too heavy and looks reversible. He and his team performed lung function tests on more than 100 patients. Although they have not returned to normal levels, they do not seem to be too damaged and will gradually recover, so the sequelae are not large.
"Today is the May 4th Youth Day. I would like to say hello and salute to the students studying overseas!" Zhong Nanshan said, "I was an international student sent by China 41 years ago. At that time, I was also considered a youth, so I feel very kind to you. Studying abroad I can experience the joys and hardships. "
Zhong Nanshan emphasized that what is very important abroad is psychology. As soon as the epidemic came, many students were under psychological pressure. In particular, international students needed mutual encouragement and support. He hoped that the students would take the epidemic as a test of themselves, a test of life, especially a psychological test. "It's good for us to experience some setbacks and hardships. I've been graduating from college for nearly 60 years. In fact, the biggest benefit is from the setbacks, not from success.
