For the second consecutive day, China does not register any local contagion
The death toll, 4, was also the lowest since daily data began to be published on January 20.
Hopeful data on Wednesday was repeated on Thursday. China announced today that for the second day in a row, it did not register any local coronavirus infections yesterday. The death toll, 4, was also the lowest since daily data began to be published on January 20. What does grow is the number of infections imported from abroad: yesterday they were 39. And that has also increased the criticism that is made in China of western countries that have uncontrolled outbreaks.
“Here in Milan, quarantine measures are very relaxed. Public transport continues to circulate, people take to the streets, and they do so without masks, ”denounced the vice president of the Chinese Red Cross, Sun Shuopeng, at a press conference held yesterday in the economic capital of Italy. In the Asian giant mistrust grows towards foreigners and Chinese who have returned, and viral videos are made such as that of the Bayer employee – an Australian of Chinese origin – who has been expelled from the country for going out to exercise and skipping the mandatory quarantine.
However, the streets in China are recovering normality: traffic has returned, the shops that still remain closed are a minority, and even the photo shoots of those who are going to marry have resumed. Of course, the mandatory use of a mask and temperature controls are maintained in all public buildings and in most residential buildings. The common areas of the latter are disinfected every few hours and specialists remember that it is too early to claim victory, because a second wave of the epidemic cannot be ruled out.
