Beware of the virus

Beware of the virus

Many plastic elevators in Beijing, China, or anyplace into the world are filled with disposable toothpicks and are used to press the elevator buttons. It is reported that the measures to prevent epidemics in Beijing are almost the same as in February during the peak of the epidemic. It feels even stricter. Many sellers still require customers to measure the temperature before entering the store and leave contact information and ID numbers.

According to Chosun Ilbo, a toothpick was installed in the elevator of the Chinese building today. Under the influence of a new epidemic of the coronavirus, he remained in his office for almost two months and returned to his office in Beijing, China, on March 27. The park in which the office is located has 6 apartments and offices. To enter the park, you need to measure your body temperature and present a “Vaccination Pass” and an identity card issued by the administration.

Walk into the elevator and see the announcement of disinfection every 2-3 hours and the plastic foam filled with toothpicks. A notice “To prevent cross-infection, press the elevator button with a toothpick” is posted next to it.

The report quoted that according to statistics from the Chinese government, the domestic virus spread in China has been basically controlled by dividing by about 40 overseas imported cases every day.

But the measures to prevent epidemics in Beijing in everyday life are almost the same as in February, at the height of the epidemic.

It feels even stricter. Many sellers still require customers to measure the temperature before entering the store and leave contact information and ID numbers. Such strict measures to prevent epidemics are associated with the fear of “secondary distribution” of inflow from foreign countries or other regions.

Due to the fact that the Chinese government is reducing the number of flights, more than 20,000 people still travel to China from abroad every day. According to Beijing’s municipal government, 200,000 people are expected to return after lifting the new blockade in Hubei Province, the worst-affected area.
