The Evolution and Capability of Disease Surveillance System in Chinese #Article

The coronavirus viruses in the family cause common colds, tuberculosis, and SARS, an infection from which the Chinese had recovered. The country is once again facing a similar, and possibly even a viral, outbreak which could cause more harm. In addition to China, the virus ' presence has already spread to 22 countries with more than 16,000 people infected and at least 555 killed.

Amid the outbreak, the Chinese government introduced a disease monitoring network to prevent another infectious disease from spreading in the same way. After the Asian H2N2 pandemic that emerged in China in 1957, the Chinese Government produced the first version in 1959. Across the planet, it is estimated that 1,1 million people were killed. But the program was obsolete by the time China saw its first SARS event in 2002. Therefore, after the SARS outbreak, the government has created a new online system that allows clinics and hospitals to record cases in real time.

When the three arrived at a hospital in Wuhan, China with the same pneumonia symptoms, the medical staff took decisive measures and followed standard procedures: the entry into a government database of the patient's geographic location, demographic information and infection status. Such data is submitted to the database of the National Infectious Disease Surveillance Information System, the national medical surveillance system in China. When the program indicates a higher than normal occurrence of disease in a given area, this will warn policy analysts and officials to carry out a closer inspection and may order additional laboratory inspections.And in a week from the first study, China found a fever in Wuhan. Coughing patients had no pneumonia, and they were diagnosed with a different type of virus that had never been seen by humans..

Despite being declared a global threat and the widespread panic distributed through different media outlets, the virus epidemic is being handled in a better way than it was in the past. Apart from the identification and quarantine research, progress towards the production of a potential vaccine is faster due to all the resources available and support from around the globe.
