Editor’s Note: The COVID 19th outbreak is creating a lot of problems and uncertainties in China and around the world. Sivanka Dhanapala, UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Representative in China, shared his views with CGTN on China’s response to the situation and discrimination faces of the people of China. The views expressed in the video are his own and do not necessarily reflect the views of CGTN

CGTN :. What do you think of the Chinese managementcoronavirus outbreak this time

Dhanapala 😕 I’ve been here since the outbreak of the crisis a few weeks ago. And I’ve been very impressed with the overall management of the crisis by the government but also by civil society and the public. If you look at the government’s response, the response has been great. Seeing the strengthening of surveillance systems and health care. For example, the construction of the hospital in a few days, medical staff deployment for Hubei Province, which is the epicenter. crackdowns

Of course, there has also been limiting the spread of the virus. For example, locking down of the city of 11 million people like Wuhan. This can be achieved in a very few other countries. So it has been impressive. Also, the self-discipline of people who have self-quarantining and self-isolate to stop the spread of the virus.

There is also a very good outreach programs, sharing information about the latest developments, and really communicate clearly with the public on preventive measures and so on. It’s very, very important in a situation like this from a public health emergency.

But equally impressive was what civil society and communities have made. We had read about volunteers carrying medical staff work. These people are working nonstop since the Spring Festival to ensure that medical supplies are provided to those on the front line in Wuhan City. We also heard about the volunteer carrying food and essential supplies for the elderly and other people who can not really go ahead and get supplies for themselves. We read about overseas students and overseas Chinese in sending supplies to China, and they were not able to fly again actually sending supplies through well-meaning strangers start flights to China. We’ve had reports of non-governmental organizations, NGOs, sends medical supplies to China -. Of Belarus, for example, from Japan, from Russia

And also, that the private sector, there are those who put their country and their people first. Chinese factories, for example, delaying business deals, switch their production lines of their staple products for products that are needed now – for example, are needed masks, gowns for household and so on. And generally, companies and individuals donated supplies and money to support the response. It’s very impressive.

CGTN: people China has faced discriminatory rhetoric and actions during COVID the 19th plague. How does this affect the response to the humanitarian crisis

Dhanapala 😕 I said right away, this is the time for solidarity, for international solidarity. This is not the time to stigma. For me, when we think about stigma, this is prejudice. And prejudice contributes to forming opinions based on little or no information, or misinformation. Misinformation and rumor to create fear and anxiety, both for refugees or those suspected of carrying the virus. Now, if we do not check this, if we do not just completely, this leads to stigma, discrimination against certain groups of people. These people could be wrong could be considered a troublemaker, but in fact they are innocent, vulnerable, need help, and just a victim of circumstance. Stigma and discrimination can lead to exclusion from the people who really need help and empathy. It’s important, very important, to focus on the facts, objective fact-based information, and to understand the challenges and find solutions together. We need solidarity and cooperation for international information sharing expertise. I mentioned this earlier to pool resources where they are most needed and to make sure vulnerable people get the help they need. So we really need to come together, as an international community, to combat stigma

CGTN :. What would you like to say to inspire or entertain up of China and the Chinese people now?

Dhanapala: First, our thoughts are very much with you as we weather this crisis together. We are inspired by your perseverance. Perseverance, courage, the resilience of the Chinese people in the face of this crisis has been very impressive. We, as an international community, and we are here with the United Nations stands in solidarity with you. Of course, the road ahead may be long and not known, but we are confident that China can survive this crisis with hope and optimism. 中国 加油, 武汉 加油.

Three preliminarily screened potential antiviral drugs can inhibit viral replication at the cellular level, which has been used in the treatment of disease. And five newer drugs found to be effective in inhibiting the virus, said Chen Huanchun, professor of Huazhong Agricultural University.

Clinical trials of antiviral drugs US-made Remdesivir begin February 6 in Jinyintan hospital in Wuhan, where the virus infected 761 cases included, said Peng Zhiyong, director of the Intensive Care Unit at Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University.

Meanwhile, people are curious to test results, Peng said that it was only three days and the trial is not yet complete. It still takes time for the experts to evaluate the overall effectiveness.

approach Three-branch to detect the coronavirus

In the latest version of the plan of diagnosis and treatment for coronavirus, as a method of additional testing in Hubei, showed that diagnosing the virus can no longer solely dependent the nucleic acid test results.

nucleic acid test samples taken from the nasopharynx, in the upper respiratory tract, whereas the virus primarily attacks the lungs. So a few cases show a “false negative” in nucleic acid testing, which leads to misdiagnosis, and could “lead to some source of infection is not really identified and the risk of expansion,” said Xu Shunqing, vice president of the School of Public Health Huazhong University of Science and Technology.

The fifth edition of a plan to increase CT and clinical standards to provide evidence for diagnosis and treatment.

“Now the judgment of the disease does not simply rely on nucleic acid testing positive, there are also clinical standards – three consecutive days without fever, and improve CT imaging” that can make an assessment of the patient’s condition more accurately, said Xu <. p> a very low probability of infection by aerosol

As yet, no direct proof that the new coronavirus can spread by aerosol, said Xu.

“I think now is the aerosol transmission, especially in certain environments, such as a limited, narrow space,” said Xu. “It’s possible to release large amounts of virus in the operating room at a time, in which case the aerosol transmission is possible.”

Xu said the public is not thought to be a fear that the virus in the air in Wuhan because it can be confusing aerosol transmission and air transmission.

aerosol, as small as a few tenths of a micron, can be formed from both liquid and solid particles. Generally, wearing a mask to prevent the transmission of aerosols, Xu said.

The virus can not stay in the air longer. The probability of getting infected by aerosol past the window opening for ventilation in the room is very low, experts stress, even much lower than winning the lottery.

Is there a fecal-oral transmission?

The NCP is a contagious respiratory disease, and to cut off transmission of breathing is the most difficult.

Even if there is fecal-oral transmission, which is still to be confirmed, it is quite easy to cut off this route for the attention to personal hygiene and wash hands before eating and after using the toilet, said Xu.

warm weather will suppress the virus

Chen said that the novel coronavirus like cold weather, and when the temperature gets higher, it will be suppressed. That’s why between October and April, there is a higher incidence of the disease is usually viral.

The epidemic in Hubei is still at its peak, and the key is to identify and isolate all potential infections, she said.

Gilead just laid claim to a chemical compound Remdesivir, while Wuhan institution has applied for a method of use of the pharmaceutical products, some of them told the Global Times.

“It was good to have the patent is that it will lead to cross-license situation gives China more bargaining chips in negotiating licensing fees with Gilead,” Wang Yanyu, a senior partner in the office of the Law of Allbright in Beijing, told the Bloomberg news agency.
