Mother, daughter test positive in city

TWO people, a 74-year-old woman and her 44-year-old daughter, were confirmed as locally transmitted COVID-19 cases in Shanghai yesterday.

They are being treated at the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center and responding well to the treatment, Wu Jinglei, head of the Shanghai Health Commission, said yesterday.

The two arrived in Shanghai on a high-speed train on November 18, and stayed at the residential complex on 186 Mudan Road in the Pudong New Area.

The mother reported feeling unwell on November 27. On November 30, the daughter had a fever, and her mother was feverish the next day. On Wednesday night, they went to the Renji Hospital in Pudong, and tested positive early yesterday.

Both of them had received their two vaccination shots.

By 5pm yesterday, authorities had tracked down 146 of their contacts in Shanghai. The nucleic acid tests on 64 of them came back negative. Totally, 14,208 people have been put under medical screening. Of them, 6,351 tested negative.

The residential complex in Pudong is classified as a medium-risk area and is under lockdown.

The complex, along with some roadside stores, had been cordoned off when Shanghai Daily’s reporter visited the site at 3pm.

Police officers, security guards, and volunteers in protective outfits were trying to maintain order.

Volunteers told Shanghai Daily that people started receiving nucleic acid tests from morning. Shop owners in the complex were moved to designated places for central quarantine after the tests.

About 900 residents at the complex had finished the first round of nucleic acid testing.

“I’m a friend of the residents, and they assured me that they will make my job easier by observing the rules,” Shen Qi, the community police officer at the complex, said with a smile.

Over 20 police officers and their assistants from the Huamu Police Station are in charge of maintaining order at the complex, Pudong police said.

The complex is within one kilometer from the Xiangmei Garden on 1650 Jinxiu Road, which was put under quarantine last Thursday. It is still under a 14-day quarantine, along with Xiangzhangyuan complex on 1080 Haiyang Road in Pudong, and Xijiao Jinlu complex on 189 Yewen Road in Qingpu.

Wu said yesterday’s two cases were not connected to the previous cases.

Meanwhile, Jinshan Hospital of Fudan University suspended services and implemented closed-loop management for medical screening. Tinglin Hospital, the Jinshan Branch of Shanghai Sixth People's Hospital, and local community service centers are offering 24-hour services to meet the demands of the residents.

By Wednesday, nearly 23.22 million people in Shanghai had received the vaccines. Among them, about 21.42 million, or nearly 92.2 percent — had received their double doses. Since the city launched the booster dose on November 1, about 2.98 million people had received the third shot, Wu said.

The pandemic is still looming over the world. As a major port city, Shanghai is under pressure to catch the imported cases. Wu said the city will keep a close eye on the cases to ensure the safety and health of the people.
