More than 2 months into the crisis, we do not have a flattening curve but rather a spike...

传染病专家:新加坡不明感染源病例增多...

据新加坡传染病专家警告, 近两周该国不明感染源(unlinked/untraced)的新冠肺炎病例不断上升,已逼近社区广泛传播临近点,未来一周是关键时刻。 传染病专家认为病例不断上升是因为: 过去一段时间,大量人员从欧美返回或入境,3月24日隔离措施实施前,很多人外出活动造成隐患; 可能社区出现更多无症状感染者,增大传播风险。 该国已经规定从3月23日晚11时59分起,禁止所有国籍的短期访客入境或转机;只允许提供医疗、运输必要服务的工作准证持有者、以及他们的直系亲属入境。 传染病专家指出,一个测量标准是,如果从3月24日算起的14天潜伏期后,即4月7日开始,新加坡若继续出现更多无关联病例,就能断定病毒已在社区广泛传播。 新加坡跨部门工作小组31日傍晚召开新闻发布会,公布当天确诊病例47例,其中16例是输入病例,18例尚未查到感染源。累计确诊总数926例。根据媒体统计,...
