Cold-chain food contamination as the possible origin of Covid-19 resurgence in Beijing

Covid-19, caused by SARS-CoV-2, has been contained in China through stringent non-pharmaceutical interventions. The border control and quarantine have effectively prevented the virus spread by infected travellers, but the risk of resurgence caused by other routes of introduction and transmission remains unclear, and current strategies to prevent resurgence could be flawed. Since July, SARS-CoV-2 RNA contaminations in frozen food imported from countries with ongoing epidemics have been reported in nine provinces in China. However, there is no robust evidence of Covid-19 outbreaks initiated by environment-to-human transmission. Here we add to evidence of such transmission by investigating the recent Covid-19 resurgence in Beijing.

Was South Korea’s Response to COVID-19 a Success?

Strengthening social and economic distancing measures in response to rising COVID-19 cases will hurt the economy, whereas allowing normal economic activity could lead to a further spread of the virus.

South Korea’s current response is active intervention, where the goal is to diagnose cases in the early stages, contact trace, isolate those exposed or infected and treat cases. However, should the COVID-19 pandemic turn out to be prolonged, economic activities should be resumed, requiring South Korea to seek herd immunity and focus on protecting high-risk groups.

En Chine s’observe une disjonction de même nature, mais qui se manifeste entre les prix des logements et les fondamentaux économiques.
