City plans 12 new do’s and don’ts

Shanghai has drafted a convention with 12 do’s and 12 don’ts to promote public health and urge its 24 million residents to lead a healthier life.

Behaviors including wearing masks, practicing social distancing, conducting regular health checkups and receiving vaccinations are encouraged in a draft convention by local authorities.

Spitting, littering, overeating, staying up late and consuming too much alcohol are among the behaviors discouraged.

Wang Tong, deputy director of the Office of the Shanghai Health Promotion Committee, said many of the recommended behaviors, like mask-wearing and frequent hand-washing, have been proved effective in containing the spread of COVID-19.

More than 25,000 restaurants in Shanghai, including 100 time-honored brands, expressed their support for the use of serving utensils to avoid people taking food from the same dish by their own utensils, which may increase the risk of cross-infection.

The draft convention has been opened for public comment until April 7.
