11:08 am
a sponsor fears of a 2nd wave of infections officials are calling for increased testing and sampling to prevent the virus from spreading to the palin explains why the chinese government is particularly concerned about this cost. the 1st thing they're doing is testing people they say they're going to test the 10000 people that worked or are staff at that markets in particular then they want to test anyone who has gone to that market or is linked to the markets since the end of may so that is a huge once again a huge endeavor they also are shutting down the neighborhoods around that market about 11 neighborhoods will have very strict restrictions they won't be a people will be locked in they won't be able to move out paramilitary forces are in the area to try and enforce that they were supposed to open schools and kindergartens on monday from grade once a 3 but that's not being felt that's not going to happen they're also closing. vents sporting events major public facilities now there is
11:09 am
a massive worry about this because there are certain parallels between this outbreak and the outbreak where the coronavirus 1st surf surface in trying now back at the end of last year if you recall it 1st came out or was detected in the city of one that's a city of about 11000000 people and it was also in a market and it's spread quite rapidly thousands of people there were infected and trying to put in these stringent and some would say draconian measures to try and lock in people and stop the movement but yet it did spread across the country when i speak to archie clements about this he's and if you see him ali just said curtin university in perth australia joins us now from there thank you so much for your time said these locally transmitted cases in beijing a causing a lot of worry as we heard there launch wholesale food market is at the center of this new cluster and this is similar to how the outbreak started in one in december the concern now is that the virus could be spreading through food and food packaging how likely is that. i don't think there's
11:10 am
a lot of evidence the the virus spreads. i think it's far more likely that. the plans to stop it where you've been infected but some you may have trouble but other area we may have begun on the. visit of the muppet others a worked out or as a customer and set up the chain of transmission that was over and that's buster i think. the risk for the china is not through the food packaging in food distribution system i think it is through the people in and out of the mob it's a very very large market. you know many thousands of visitors to the market. and it supplies a lot of the budgets of fresh food so i think the really the biggest there was the baby a lot of on the business market and then potentially spread around the city because how we understand this because beijing has had not not had
11:11 am
a locally transmitted case in over 50 days the virus should theoretically not have been there should it. well i think it must have got them through one of 2 ways either there were in the case of in beijing. the medicare is actually spreading the virus to other people it may not have been home that's of the medical. and that some point in the market are people who visit the market the pumps and the medic in the class that was active that's one possibility the other possibility is that a person has come in from outside potentially international visit are are they were protected in the current in process and then they are set up the chain of transmission in it in beijing i think it's very unlikely that the bars the baby or the. foodstuffs such as such as the right authorities are now racing to track in tests will that be enough do you think to contain this quickly what else should
11:12 am
they be doing at this. well i think the beijing of the early days of the chinese are as a general. meditating if they're just as exotic as a clue to that where the bars are but also the previous ones are big. and people has the very seriously there. are images that tell us but. they're shutting down the streets that we're in believe. that they try to say that there is a really that the tools that are available to them in the. use of all of those images thank you so much for talking to us about this archie clements joining us a from perth in australia thank you for your time. india meanwhile has recorded another big single day jump been called 1000 cases with over 11000 new infections the supreme court says patients are being treated worse than animals in the worst affected areas with reports of people being turned away from hospitals and bodies not being disposed of properly the rise in infections comes as the government says
