Pushkov called new cases of coronavirus in Beijing "strange"
The day before, 27 new cases of coronavirus infection were detected in the PRC. The head of the Federation Council Commission on Information Policy and Media Relations Alexei Pushkov called them "strange".
- A very strange new appearance of Kovid-19 in Beijing, and again on the market. And again there are no clear explanations. It is only clear that this time bats and pangolins are definitely not to blame. There is a version that the virus was imported from Europe. Who, how and why was found on salmon cutting boards is a mystery, the official wrote on his Twitter.
Note that most of the 27 cases are related to the appearance of COVID-19 in the Xinfadi Beijing market. At the same time, Chinese epimdemiologist Liu Jun noted that the detected virus is older than European strains. Prior to this, scientists discovered that the virus from the Beijing market is even more infectious than it appeared in Wuhan.
After a new outbreak in the Chinese capital, martial law was introduced in one of the districts of Beijing. Later, such a regime was introduced in the city of Baoding, Hebei Province.
