Nanjing: Daily diagnosed cases hit a record, the possibility of further spread is great, the expert said

On the morning of the 27th, Nanjing confirmed it was the "Delta" strain that caused the epidemic. At present, it is highly suspected the infection was initially caused by the inadequate self-protection of airport cleaning staff during the disinfection and cleaning process after the arrival of international flights, which then forms a cluster of transmission among cleaning staff, and then spreads to other airport staff and passengers. The initial infection time should be around July 10. At present, Nanjing has completed two rounds of nucleic acid testing. A virology expert analyzed that, according to observations on the Guangzhou and Ruili epidemic, some infected cases could still be detected after 2-3 rounds of nucleic acid testing. The current epidemic situation in Nanjing should still be on the active status, and subsequent cases may continue to be found in the following nucleic acid testing. Nanjing announced on the 28th that, currently there are 4 high-risk areas and 42 medium-risk areas in the city. Public places like KTV, cinemas, museums, and Real estate sales offices are now closed.

Local cases are spreading in 10 cities of 5 provinces
