China: instead of the holiday – total sanitary control

Announced the smallest patient. The new type of coronavirus was diagnosed in two children in the city of Hechi in southern China. As China celebrates this Chinese New year?

Listed in the Guinness Book of records as the most popular TV show of the world new year gala-concert in China, an annual gathering at the TV half the population of the country, this time remained the only mass event that authorities decided not to cancel. Just at the entrance to the now familiar total sanitation. And changed the program of dances and songs from the stage — well wishes to all infected and gratitude to those who during the holidays the last effort struggling with their lives.

the holiday, which China had been waiting for, here is now a little reminiscent of that. Deserted streets, shops. Canceled all fair. For visits shut down even part of the great wall of China. But those who managed to leave town before the official ban of all the celebrations, time decided not to lose.

it’s the Year of the white metal rat, but the main color of the holiday in China will still be red. And to celebrate the New year here you need certainly bright and loud to disperse the evil spirits. And this year — and even the new coronavirus.

“It’s a long-held belief, and it should help to get rid of all the poor — from disease, from infection,” say the locals.

In hospitals — the queue from wishing to pass the examination. There is not trying to fool the thermal imager with antipyretics as it was in the first days of infection. And while in laboratories struggling to create vaccines for prevention of pneumonia rises new traditional Chinese medicine.

However, all this rather to complacency. In traditional red envelopes, which is New year in China always give money, this time a put the fact that today was for the Chinese, more important, an ordinary mask, while the only thing medicine can to offer protection from infection.
