According to a report from sohu.com on July 23 (Beijing time): At 4 am on July 22, Zhongshan, Guangdong Province, 1 positive case of CCP Virus was detected during nucleic acid screening among the people returning from a medium-high risk area. A 23-year-old woman was on a business trip in Nanjing from July 15-19 and is now tested positive while asymptomatic. Zhongshan city therefore has launched an emergency response plan including performing CCP virus tests on all residents. People who plan to leave Guangdong province are required to hold a “CCP virus negative certificate” issued within 48 hours.
After a brief search of this piece of news on Google, I found that a lot of CCP’s propaganda media (including CCTV) reported this news. The reporting mode is similar to that of the CCP virus outbreak reported at Nanjing Lukou International Airport (related news on gnews: https://gnews.org/1410680/) a few days ago.
Interestingly, by comparison, one new local asymptomatic CCP Virus case and one imported asymptomatic infection case were reported in Shenyang, Liaoning Province on July 22. However, there was no emergency response plan initiated nor was there any “CCP virus negative certificate” required for people leaving Shenyang. Furthermore, CCP’s media did not report extensively on the situation in Shenyang.
What is the reason behind the difference in handling and reporting on the two cities mentioned above (Zhongshan vs Shenyang)? Is it because Zhongshan and Shenyang have different epidemic prevention policies? Or is it because the case in Zhongshan is related to Nanjing while the cases in Shenyang are not? Further google search shows that negative certificate with 48 hours has been required since July 21 for people who plans to leave Nanjing.
