[Introduction]: at the 78th epidemic prevention and control news interview in Shanghai, Zhong Nanshan, the leader of the high-level expert group of the National Health Commission, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, and Respirology experts, studied in Sui, working foreigners have face-to-face communication.

On the morning of April 15, the Information Office of Shanghai municipal people’s government held the 78th epidemic prevention and control news interview activity in Shanghai Medical University, inviting academician Zhong Nanshan to have a discussion and exchange with representatives of foreign nationals working and studying in Sui.

A total of 19 foreigners participated in the discussion and exchange activities. They came from different countries such as Japan, Australia, Russia, Somalia, Vietnam, Nigeria, Malawi, Guinea, etc. The 19 foreigners who participated in the exchange talked about their experiences in Shanghai and asked academician Zhong Nanshan one by one.

The eight most noteworthy questions in the Q & A between 19 foreign friends and academician Zhong Nanshan are as follows:

1. How can foreign students in Sui prevent epidemic?

I think there is no difference between foreign students and Chinese students. Recently, there have been some cases of infection in China, but it does not mean that the epidemic will break out for the second time. Everyone can gradually resume work and go to school, but if there are foreign friends or relatives coming, you still need to be careful.

2. How do African and Southern Industries prevent and control the new coronavirus?

When the epidemic broke out, it spread very fast. Recently, covid-19 began to spread in Africa, South America and India. I think countries with severe epidemic need to take strict prevention and control measures. The most important thing is isolation and detection.

3. When do I need to wear a mask?

I think in Shanghai, China, the current situation has gradually stabilized. We don’t need to wear masks all the time, but if there is not enough interval in the classroom, we need to wear masks at this time. However, cases in many countries are still rising rapidly, and it is necessary to remove masks.

4. How to distinguish new coronavirus from other diseases?

The infection of covid-19 should be distinguished from common influenza and allergic symptoms.

5. How do children diagnose?

Children will get more attention. If children have symptoms, first diagnose whether it is common flu or new coronavirus pneumonia, and test the parents.

6. Is it possible for ants to spread covid-19, and does artemisinin have any effect on the virus?

Now it seems that traditional Chinese medicine such as Lianhua Qingwen is helpful for the treatment of patients. Plasma therapy for recovered patients is also a beneficial attempt, but whether artemisinin is effective can indeed be tried. No mosquito has been found to spread the new coronavirus.

7. How to conduct global cooperation?

In addition to masks, protective clothing and other materials, what is more important is the exchange of experience. The exchange of experience is also to avoid making mistakes again.

8. How to judge the relationship between epidemic prevention and control and economic development?

This is beyond the scope of my answer. “One world,One fight! “We are in the same world, and the world must fight together for the epidemic. Facing the epidemic, I also think that human beings should coexist harmoniously with animals.

If you reply to [asymptomatic], you can query the data and isolation requirements of asymptomatic infected persons in Shanghai, Shanghai and the whole country.
