COVID resurgence in China unlikely
It is highly unlikely China will experience a major resurgence of the novel coronavirus during the upcoming Spring Festival, given that the nation has created containment measures to quickly identify, isolate and control any possible outbreaks, a health official said on Wednesday.
Feng Zijian, deputy director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said the center has gained more understanding of the novel coronavirus in the fight against the epidemic over more than a year.
Large population movements and concentrations during Spring Festival, and an increasing number of parcels being delivered, will add to the risk of COVID-19 infection.
However, as long as epidemic containment measures are strictly implemented, there will not be a large resurgence of the COVID-19 epidemic, he said at a news conference held by the Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council.
