The Information Office of the Zhejiang Provincial Government announced a "14+7+7" health management measure for inbound personnel at its 59th press conference for the province's epidemic prevention and control efforts on the morning of Dec 29.
"14+7+7" means that in addition to a 14-day concentrated quarantine, inbound personnel should undergo a seven-day health observation at home plus another seven days of health monitoring, with one round of nucleic acid testing arranged after each period.
Zhejiang plans to complete an emergency vaccination program, inoculating targeted populations with COVID-19 vaccines before Feb 5.
So far, a total of 1,726 clinics throughout the province have qualified for emergency inoculations, with 15,698 medical workers receiving related training and certification for the vaccination.
The emergency vaccination program has been steadily proceeding, and a total of 462,900 inoculations have been made, with no serious adverse reactions reported so far.
Targeted populations include those working in high-risk areas such as imported cold-chain product management, port quarantine, loading, transportation, hospitals, and disease control, and those who plan to work or study abroad.
