Novel coronavirus pneumonia cases in Xiamen cleared
Thirty-five patients who had been confirmed with novel coronavirus pneumonia in Xiamen, East China's Fujian province, have been cleared and discharged from the hospital, the Xiamen Municipal Health Commission said on Wednesday.
The commission said Xiamen had no confirmed or suspected cases in recent days. Thirty people were still under observation.
The commission said Xiamen had gathered its best medical resources and dispatched 51 essential medical workers from hospitals with 3A grades - the highest of China's three-tier grading system for public hospitals - since Jan 22 to other designated hospitals. The medical teams include 32 doctors and 106 nurses.
The designated hospitals also built a municipal remote treatment and command platform for seriously ill patients, and provincial experts were invited to provide remote or clinical consulting, the commission said.
Going further, Xiamen will strengthen its joint prevention and control efforts, rigorously carry out precise preventive measures by region and epidemic grade and promote screening, services and administration of key populations at risk. It also will provide care to front-line medical workers and serve companies to help them resume production, it said.
