Li Yang pointed out that a major feature of this round of epidemic situation is the emergence of local aggregation epidemic situation. The construction site of Wuhan Zhuankou project of China Construction Third Engineering Bureau is the source of this round of imported epidemic in Wuhan.

The construction site of Wuhan Zhuankou project of China Construction Third Engineering Bureau refers to the construction site of the remaining works 1#, 2# plots of the comprehensive reconstruction project of Zhuankou six villages. The project is located in wanjiahu Road, Wuhan Economic Development Zone, covering an area of about 270 Mu and a construction area of about 800000 square meters. The project site has 22 dormitory buildings, a total of 440, and more than 1800 permanent construction personnel. The first-episode patient Tang lived in room 7-204, and 4 people lived in the same room with him (all tested positive).

“After the first case of infection occurred on the project site, local aggregation infection was formed due to the dense population, centralized accommodation and poor ventilation.” Li Yang said that the new cases in Wuhan on the 5th had a time-space intersection with the construction site of Wuhan Zhuankou project of China Construction Third Bureau.

Novel coronavirus pneumonia was found in 4 new cases of diagnostic pneumonia in Jingmen high tech Zone and duo district. 3 cases were identified as the same source of transmission. All three of the three projects in Wuhan, Zhuankou, and workers in the project site were found in the key areas.

In addition, Wuhan epidemic site infection chain also spread to Chongqing. A novel coronavirus pneumonia infection was also reported on 1 pm in Fengjie County, Chongqing on the afternoon of August 4th, which was strongly related to the above sites in Wuhan Zhuankou.

In order to prevent further spillover and spread of the site infection chain, Wuhan is urgently searching the whole society for relevant personnel who have intersected with the construction site of Wuhan Zhuankou project of China Construction Third Engineering Bureau. At present, the in-depth investigation on the intersection between the activity track and the epidemic site is still ongoing.
