The rebound of the epidemic continued. Today (9th), there were 2,995 new confirmed cases, including 204 imported cases, no new deaths, and confirmed cases in 4 residential homes and a special school.


Lu Chongmao, director of the Medical and Health Bureau, said at a press conference on the epidemic yesterday that the suspension of the flight circuit breaker mechanism does not mean relaxation of epidemic prevention, but a more accurate anti-epidemic to prevent imports from abroad, emphasizing "never consider lying flat."

He pointed out that the word “clearance” had been heard the most in the week after he took office, and he even remembered it in his dreams, but the society must have reasonable expectations, and it is completely impossible to clear customs within a short period of time without quarantine. The return card can be passed in three minutes at will, I believe it is unreasonable to expect in a short period of time.”
