Since the outbreak of novel coronavirus pneumonia(NCP), Yunnan has taken a package of measures to prevent the spread of the epidemic.
Starting January 24, Yunnan makes sure everyone entering the province has their temperature taken at airports, railway stations, inter-provincial service areas and toll booths of expressways, as well as on state and provincial trunk roads within the province. Communities formulated comprehensive prevention and control measures, and those who have come from other places or returned to their hometown for the Spring Festival must report and register in a timely manner. The suspected patients, once detected, are promptly transferred to designated places for observation or certain isolation areas or hospitals for concentrated examination and treatment. The province has set up 200 fever outpatient clinics to promptly identify suspected patients. The patients hospitalized for isolated observation can receive the nucleic acid test results within 24 hours so that doctors can make definite diagnoses.
