Guangzhou, capital of South China's Guangdong Province, is speeding up its citywide nucleic acid testing, as a total of 98 infections were reported during the latest resurgence as of Sunday.
 

Experts said that the COVID-19 strain in the latest epidemic, which was initially detected in India, is more contagious and spreads faster, posing a huge challenge for medical workers to complete the citywide nucleic testing within two days.
 

"Since the launch of the nucleic acid testing on May 26, as of 12 pm on Saturday, about 16.09 million nucleic acid samples had been collected in Guangzhou, and 33 people had been found to be positive in their testing results," Chen Bin, deputy director and spokesperson of the Guangzhou's health commission, said during a press conference held by the information office of the Guangzhou government on Sunday.
 

To curb the spread of COVID-19, the city further tightened its travel restrictions. Starting from Monday at noon, passengers leaving Guangzhou are required to present negative nucleic acid test results that are less than 48 hours old.
 

According to the seventh national population census, as of November 1, 2020, the total permanent population of Guangzhou stood at 18.67 million.
 

The latest epidemic resurgence in Guangzhou has also spread to the neighboring city of Foshan, which also issued a notice requiring people who want to leave the city to present a negative nucleic acid testing result taken within 48 hours, starting from Monday at noon.
 

广州组织全球城市最大规模核酸检测,常住人口1867万

广州市南沙区、增城区、从化区、花都区5日宣布开展全员核酸检测,加上此前已经开展的区域,拥有约1867万常住人口的超大城市广州,正在组织全球城市中最大规模的核酸检测。大规模核酸检测的现场如何?背后有哪些科技力量支撑?这么做的意义何在?
 

去年以来,我国多个城市曾因新冠疫情开展全员核酸检测。去年5月14日至6月1日,武汉市集中核酸检测989.98万人;去年10月12日至10月16日,青岛市完成全员核酸检测采样超过1078万份;今年1月6日至1月8日,石家庄市实施第一轮全员核酸检测共检测1025万人。
 

在全球范围内,在短时间内开展全员核酸大筛查的城市并不多。5月30日,越南最大城市胡志明市宣布将对1300万民众进行全员核酸检测,这是目前为止国外城市中最大规模的全员核酸检测。
