Now they have been discharged, the patients will have a 14-day mandatory quarantine period at home, followed by a hospital checkup.
"Patients have been cured and discharged, which has greatly boosted the confidence of medical workers, patients and the public in fighting the coronavirus outbreak in China," said Huang Wei, deputy director of the hospital. He added that citywide efforts will help overcome the virus.
New platform helps WND residents return home
Wuxi's first intelligent community management platform designed to help control the current novel coronavirus outbreak, developed by Xinwu District Housing and the Urban-Rural Development Bureau, was officially launched on Feb 10. It took just six days from the confirmation of demand to the final launch of the platform.
Since the start of the outbreak, many residents have expressed concerns on a number of issues, including: residential districts and apartment companies operating different standards for property management; the possibility of infection when entering and exiting residential districts; low efficiency of personnel passage. In order to tackle these problems, Xinwu District Housing and Urban-Rural Development Bureau developed the “Zhima Kaimen” platform, which is designed to allow residents to return home more easily during the current virus outbreak.
It can be used by property owners, their families and tenants in residential districts across WND. After the user completes real-name registration and confirms their identity as the property owner, they can invite family members and tenants to become residents. Residents are required to fill in a questionnaire regarding their health conditions, and the information collected will automatically generate a QR code or a home observation notice. Residents can show the QR code when they go home and secure quick entry once their temperature has been taken.
