The ＂pioneer＂ behind the epidemic data
■ Our reporter Ma Ke
"Tickets have already been booked." Putting down the phone, Qiu Li, director of the Acute Infectious Disease Prevention and Control Office of the Hainan Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention, set the schedule for the next business trip. Her work is always inseparable from "urgency". Virus race, every second counts. After several rescue efforts such as the H1N1 influenza, the 2010 Hainan flood disaster that was not encountered in 60 years, and the dengue fever epidemic, the new crown epidemic in 2020 has supported "half the sky" of data and information.
At the beginning of the new crown pneumonia epidemic in 2020, based on years of emergency experience and information from various parties, Qiu Li silently refunded the ticket for family visits, sticking to her post and keeping an eye on the situation. On January 20, the new crown pneumonia epidemic was highly valued. On January 22, Hainan announced the confirmed cases, and the development of the situation suddenly became serious.
Qiu Li was ordered to serve as the leader of the epidemic information team of the Hainan Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Started a two-point, one-line life at home, sorting out close contacts data, writing epidemic statistics reports, participating in TV science popularization of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, conducting on-site epidemiological investigations, reporting epidemic information...
Since the information collection requires real-time updates and must be reported to the Hainan Provincial Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia Prevention and Control Headquarters 4 times a day, the information team must be at work 24 hours a day. So far, the epidemic information team of the Hainan Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention where Qiu Li is located has started an unstopped 24-hour shift system. In order to save time, she trots every day. Even so, during the fight against the epidemic, she only struggled for 5 hours of rest a day.
"The two most difficult months of fighting the epidemic, every member is carrying it. Jia Peng, the deputy head of the information team, moved into a small warehouse of the CDC and used mineral water to mix instant coffee for refreshing; I took the children myself I was sent back to my grandmother's house in the country, and took root in the office, while my lover stayed at the Haikou CDC, went out at 7 in the morning, and it was late at night to go home." Qiu Li looked relaxed when he recalled the predicament at that time.
