Hong Kong Airport is the first in the world to introduce anti-virus checks for passengers


The rules now in force in the air harbor include several points. Firstly, everyone who arrives in Hong Kong receives an electronic bracelet to track self-quarantine for two weeks. Secondly, the passengers are checked for temperature when exiting flights. Then, after passing through customs and passport control, each person, accompanied by the sanitary inspection staff, should go to the neighboring AsiaWorld-Expo conference center and fill out the health declaration forms.

Then travelers take a saliva sample and go for processing. Many passengers should expect the results of their tests in the same place, in the conference center, and this can take 12 hours. After receiving the test results, all "positive" for coronavirus are immediately sent to the hospital. However, everyone, regardless of whether they have a positive or negative result, must pass 14 days of mandatory quarantine. At the same time, the airport uses advanced disinfection methods, hand sanitizers and Whiz cleaning robots that are equipped with ultraviolet light sterilizers and air sterilizers.

The measures are good, experts say, if there weren’t one “but”. They significantly reduce the capacity of the air harbor. But the local authorities are in no hurry to change or even cancel the rules.

Natural Medicine: in Hong Kong, scientists have confirmed the protective properties of masks


An international group of scientists who investigated the effectiveness of medical masks has experimentally confirmed that wearing them can suppress the spread of corona virus infection, according to the journal Natural Medicine.

They used a special Gesundheit II apparatus, which reproduces human respiration and analyzes air samples, and found that masks significantly inhibit the flow of viral particles. Then, experts at the University of Hong Kong conducted an experiment involving people with suspected respiratory viral infections. It was found that in the case of 111 of 246 patients, the use of masks reduced the concentration of virus particles in expired air.
