Why not wear masks in Italy


Up to March 21st, novel coronavirus pneumonia in Italy has been diagnosed in 53578 cases. After the proclamation of the closure of the state on March 10, it became one of the difficulties for the government to gather people outside without permission. Novel coronavirus pneumonia was not serious in the eyes of the ordinary people, who was interviewed by the video on the eve of the outbreak.
Novel coronavirus pneumonia confirmed in 5560 cases in Italy within 24 hours as of 18 hours local time 22, and 59138 cases were diagnosed nationwide, 5476 cases died and 7024 cases were cured. Of the 46638 confirmed cases, 3009 were severe and 23783 were isolated at home.
The earliest outbreak occurred in October last year or in Italy. Why is no one paying attention to it? Expert response
According to observer.com, Giuseppe ramuzi, a well-known Italian medical expert, said that the first family doctors carefully found that the severe pneumonia they were exposed to was different from the common flu. They saw the virus in October, November and December, so it’s been around for a long time.
When asked why no one is aware of the dangers of the virus, experts say, for one reason: it’s a new thing; for another, experts disagree.
It is worth noting that Giuseppe ramuzi is the director of the famous Mario Negri Institute of pharmacology in Italy and even in Europe. Previously, in an interview with the national public broadcasting network (NPR), the statement was made when asked why Italy was “caught off guard” after the outbreak on February 21 was revealed.
“Ramuzzi said he heard from the doctor now. “They remember seeing this strange pneumonia, very serious, especially in the elderly, in December and even November,” he said. “This means that the virus has spread at least in northern Lombardy, Italy, before we know about the outbreak in China.”

Forest fire in Wutai Mountain


Xinzhou, China, March 21 (Li Tingyao, Lu Qi Guo) on March 20, baiyun temple in Wutai Mountain, Shanxi Province was threatened by a mountain fire. The fire was only fifty or sixty meters away from the temple building. More than 120 officers and men of Taiyuan fire rescue detachment carrying out the task of remote reinforcement rushed up the hillside with a slope of more than 70 degrees to fight against the open fire for more than 10 hours, ensuring the safety of baiyun temple.
At 18:10 on March 19, a fire broke out near the beautiful cableway parking lot of fomudong in Taihuai Town, Wutai Mountain scenic spot. Baiyun temple was about 1km away from the fire point in a straight line. The fire threatened baiyun temple and baiyun temple village nearby from the south, West and North.
At about 11:30 on March 20, when more than 120 officers and men of Taiyuan fire rescue detachment and more than 20 fire trucks arrived at baiyun temple for remote assistance, there were open fires on both sides of the north and south sides of the temple. Among them, a fire on the North hillside is only 20 meters away from the temple wall, and another fire is close to the peacock breeding site on the west side of the temple.
After the emergency reconnaissance of the fire, Taiyuan fire rescue detachment determined to take baiyun temple as the core, the south side of the temple from baiyun temple to the East-West Road along the Buddha mother hole as the main battlefield, deployed 13 large tonnage water tank fire trucks to set up water guns and water cannon positions, adopted the operational policy of combining fighting with separation and wetting the mountain to stop the fire, and immediately carried out open fire blocking.
At this time, Shen Guangting, the leader of the special service brigade of the detachment, has led two squadron commanders to climb the hillside on the north side of baiyun temple for further fire detection. At 12 o’clock, 12 firefighters of two fighting groups climbed up the hillside, laid more than 100 meters water belt, and shovel and other fire fighting tools, and began to block open flames.

The fight was extremely difficult. The slope on the north side of baiyun temple is more than 70 degrees, so it is difficult for people to stand naturally, and the pressure of fire hose is very high. A little carelessness may cause firefighters to fall down the slope. In order to ensure safety, some firefighters kneel on the hillside, some lie on the hillside, some use the fire rescue rope to tie themselves to the tree, and work together to hold the fire water gun and continue to shoot water.
At the same time, another group of firefighters from Taiyuan fire rescue detachment rushed to the south slope of baiyun temple to block the open fire.
After the initial control of the open fire on the north and south sides of baiyun temple, firefighters began shovel the fire to clean up, and then transferred to the fire field guard.
Reporters at around 1:00 on the 21st saw that there are still firefighters clinging to the hillside on the north side of the temple.

At about 8:00 on the 21st, the reporter came to baiyun temple again and found that there was no open fire on the North hillside, only sporadic fire and smoke spots on the south hillside. From time to time, the helicopter could be seen in the air sprinkling water on the fire spot. After the Inner Mongolia forest fire brigade and the local people put out the fire together, many sporadic fire spots were put out.
So far, the fire threat of baiyun temple in Wutai Mountain has been completely eliminated.

Overseas students return home to hard break community


Today (March 19) morning, there was a hot news on the microblog that “overseas students return to the hard break community in Hangzhou”.
According to netizens, a 16-year-old American girl returned to Hangzhou from wendingyuan community in Hangzhou without isolation test. Her father said she could go back to the community without centralized isolation. The security guard insisted on the principle of no entry, and there was a dispute and conflict between the two sides.
This morning, the reporter verified the situation with wendingyuan community, Xihu District.
According to Shi, the Secretary of the community, the situation of the American female student returning to Hangzhou has been figured out by the community in advance. Last night around 7 o’clock, the car of the West Lake District CDC, carrying the international student, was stopped when he arrived at the gate post of the community.
“The first reaction of security and owners when they see workers in protective clothing transporting people returning from the United States is to deny them access.”
According to the principle, the United States is a high-risk area and the female student should be segregated in a centralized way, Shi said. At that time, the community staff at the scene repeatedly confirmed that the circulation sheet provided by the CDC really agreed that the female student should be isolated at home. At the same time, the community asked for instructions from the epidemic prevention and control headquarters of the West Lake District to confirm that the female student was living in a special situation and agreed to be isolated at home.
“After the confirmation of these processes, our community received them.” As for the dispute on the spot, “it may be that there are flaws in the connection”.
“We have been in strict control for two months and will never let up at this time.” At present, the international student has been isolated at home and the community will strictly implement management measures, said Shi.
The reporter then called the West Lake District CDC, and a staff member said that in response to the situation of female students in wendingyuan, the West Lake District would make an official response.
