Chengdu local epidemic is still in the stage of rapid rise

From August 25th to 29th, a total of 433 local cases had already been reported in the local epidemic in Chengdu, including 322 confirmed cases and 111 asymptomatic infections.
According to local reports, due to the extremely hot weather in Chengdu, many citizens have been to indoor waterparks and swimming pools. As those places were humid and with bad air circulation, plus the lack of proper personal protection during the entertainment activities in water, it easily caused virus spreading, and resulted in a high risk of social transmission.

Meanwhile, seven districts including Tianfu New District, Qingyang District, Jinniu District, Chenghua District, and Wuhou District, had carried out large scale nucleic acid testing for all residents.

At present, the number of new local infected cases in Chengdu is growing rapidly, the epidemic situation is in a period of rapid rise, and some cases have a wide track of social activities before being detected, the risk of community transmission still exists, and the epidemic situation is severe.

Chengdu officials have released notification on Tuesday, urging a strict implementation of classified management on different areas according to different risk levels. Districts, counties and cities of high risk with infections discovered will be placed under lockdown and residents from areas of medium-risk are restricted from leaving their compounds.

A citywide nucleic acid testing will be carried out and the residents have to present negative nucleic acid testing results obtained within 48 or 24 hours to enter public venues.
