Li Lanjuan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, said her team has isolated eight new coronaviruses in the laboratory, of which several are very suitable for vaccines and they are now working on it intensively, according to a Weibo post by the Wuhan City government.
The medical team of about 10 people led by Li Lanjuan came to Wuhan again yesterday, focusing on critically ill patients, hoping to further reduce the mortality rate.
She mentioned in an interview with CCTV today that although isolation is important, pay attention to whether patients are infected with the new coronavirus. "To detect whether the virus is positive, it must be separated from the negative."
The National Health and Medical Commission stated on February 2 that children and pregnant women are susceptible to pneumococcal infection of the new type of coronavirus, and it is necessary to prevent and control the pneumonia epidemic of children and maternal new coronavirus infection.
