Original title: General Administration of Customs: Last year, more than 27,000 infectious diseases were detected
The General Administration of Customs announced today (26th) that in 2018, more than 27,000 infectious diseases were detected, and no public health incidents at major ports occurred in the whole year.
According to customs statistics, in 2018, the national customs carried out a total of 650 million person-times of body temperature monitoring, and detected more than 15,000 infectious diseases, conducted 1.049 million physical examinations for infectious diseases, and detected more than 12,000 infectious diseases. There were no major port public health security incidents in the year.
Song Yueqian, deputy director of the Department of Health of the General Administration of Customs, said that in addition to the current epidemic, the infectious diseases we detected also detected Zika, Dengue fever and some infectious diseases such as malaria and AIDS.
It is understood that the Customs can quickly measure the body temperature of inbound and outbound passengers through the far-infrared thermometer. Even in the Gongbei port where the average daily passenger flow is 300,000, the customs can quickly determine the passenger's body temperature through this machine. The staff will conduct a preliminary screening of the passengers and assist the passengers in seeking medical treatment as soon as possible.
Zheng Zhigang, head of the Customs Travel Inspection Department of Gongbei Gate, said that because more than 90% of infectious diseases have symptoms of fever, we use this scientific infrared temperature measuring instrument to monitor body temperature of incoming and outgoing people.
In addition, in 2018, 11178 imported disease vector organisms were intercepted at the national port, a total of 2,226,600, and 420 positive pathogens were detected.
Adjacent to the Spring Festival, attention should be paid to the prevention of epidemics
As the Spring Festival approaches, some people will also use the Spring Festival holiday to travel abroad. The Customs Department reminded passengers that when entering and leaving the country, they should raise awareness of the prevention of epidemics and avoid the spread of infectious diseases.
Returnees in the affected areas pay close attention to their own situation
As the Spring Festival approaches, migrant workers and students studying abroad will return to their hometowns, especially those from countries and regions in Southeast Asia, Africa, South America and other affected areas. They should pay close attention to their physical condition.
Yang Yi, a customs officer at Xianyang Airport in Xi'an, said that if symptoms of infectious diseases such as fever, headache, and cough appear, it is necessary to take the initiative to report to the customs staff and cooperate with the medical investigation.
Go to the affected country to receive the relevant vaccine
Similarly, before leaving the country, you need to go to the local international travel health center for consultation. If the destination is in an affected country, you should also get a vaccine before you travel to prevent infection-related diseases after you arrive at your destination.
Xiao Lili, director of the Beijing International Travel Health Care Center, said that the international travel health care center, which belongs to our customs, has such institutions in all major provinces and cities, so you can go to the local international travel health care center before you travel abroad. Conduct some professional consultations.
The reporter learned that the Beijing International Travel Health Care Center is currently vaccinated with 11 infectious disease vaccines, covering almost all of the major infectious diseases currently prevalent worldwide. In addition to long-term exit personnel who are studying abroad and going out to work, they must be vaccinated. Experts pointed out that when traveling to some countries with infectious diseases in a short period of time, they should also be vaccinated to prevent infection.
In addition, experts reminded that after leaving the country, it should also minimize the travel to densely populated areas, reduce contact with animals, pay attention to mosquito bites, and pay attention to personal hygiene.
