中国疾控中心为遏制流行病而设,却在新冠暴发的关键时刻受绊

之前分享过英文版,中文翻译版终于发出来了。
感觉全篇是在给中央和中国CDC开脱,说都是地方隐瞒不报。

武汉当时刚刚花了数十亿美元举办了世界军人运动会以提高城市知名度,有来自110个国家的运动员参加了比赛。当地领导人正在努力将武汉提升为与北京和上海等大城市相媲美的大都市,这样的政绩可以帮助武汉市委书记在中央政治局中争得一席之地,政治局目前由中国25名高层领导人组成。

一位武汉市的官员说,主席习近平出席了运动会开幕式,对武汉为举办这次活动所做的努力表示赞赏,这使得地方官员以为政治局的决定可能会在数周内达成。这名官员说,整体想法就是大事化小小事化了,没人预料到疫情爆发的规模。

武汉当时还在为一年一度的政策制定会议做准备,会有数百名当地官员和政协官员参加,又时逢中国农历新年假期将近,届时会有成千上万的人在国内或去海外旅行。

地方当局迅速采取行动压制了在线讨论,删除了李文亮的消息。知情人士说,李文亮和艾芬医生都受到医院领导的正式批评。

地方官员当时试图权衡问题的程度究竟有多大。

与班农和郭文贵有关的一家媒体公司融资交易遭到调查

WSJ你说说看,为什么那么多人要给他打钱呢?

纽约州一家法院在6月28日驳回了郭文贵对《华尔街日报》出版方道琼斯公司(Dow Jones & Co.)的诉讼。郭文贵起诉的事由是《华尔街日报》对Strategic Vision与上述郭文贵相关实体之间诉讼的报道。郭文贵已表示计划上诉。

最近的筹资活动也在海外引发关注。在台湾,当地新闻媒体报道称,警方阻止郭文贵的一名支持者向战友之家转账4.3万美元,原因是怀疑存在金融欺诈。新西兰一家当地新闻媒体报道称,该国数十名抗议者谴责澳新银行(Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Ltd., ANZ.AU)阻止向GTV Media转账200万美元的决定。澳新银行对此不予置评。

郭文贵曾在网上抱怨银行阻止转账的事情,称银行方面受到了中共的影响。

China’s CDC, Built to Stop Pandemics Like Covid, Stumbled When It Mattered Most

这篇文章提到了几个之前不明确的事情:

  1. 地方的CDC并不是向国家CDC汇报,而是当地卫健委;
  2. 武汉期待市委书记进政治局,所以希望大事化小;
  3. 国家CDC的高福是看到网上传言的红头文件才知道武汉有肺炎,于是打电话给武汉CDC同僚确认;
  4. 国家CDC派去武汉的工作组到华南海鲜市场取样的时候武汉卫健委早已派人消杀了一遍;
  5. 高福拿不到武汉的数据,跟美国的同僚打电话的时候气到快哭了;
  6. 卫健委在1月3日发文要求各实验室上交或销毁样本,并且禁止在期刊或媒体发文章;
  7. 复旦大学的张永振团队在1月3日收到病毒样本,5日取得测序结果,他向卫健委提醒这个病毒可能人传人,并在11日通过悉尼的同僚发表论文和序列。

感觉这篇文章就是在论证党管一切的外行指导内行行不通。

Wuhan had just spent billions of dollars hosting the Military World Games, involving athletes from 110 countries, in a bid to raise its profile. Local leaders were campaigning for Wuhan to be elevated to the same status as megacities such as Beijing and Shanghai, which would grant its party chief a seat on the Politburo, currently comprising China’s top 25 leaders.

President Xi attended the opening ceremony, praised Wuhan’s effort to host the event and led local authorities to believe the decision could come within weeks, according to one city official. “The whole mind-set was to reduce a big problem into a small one, and a small one into nothing,” the official said. “Nobody had anticipated the scale of the outbreak.”

(略)

By the time Dr. Li’s team reached the market early on Jan. 1, the cleanup, as recommended by the Dec. 30 report from local agencies in Wuhan, was in full swing.

The Wuhan office had sent a team to the market in the early hours of Dec. 31 to take samples and remove some animals, and dispatched a local company, Jiangwei Disinfection, to sterilize the area.

(略)

The China CDC team knew from its training it was essential to communicate quickly and clearly with the public so that people could take precautions and to prevent misinformation.

The NHC took a different view.

On Jan. 3, it issued an internal notice ordering laboratories that had tested samples to destroy them or hand them to the government and forbade anyone from publishing research on the virus directly or via the media, according to a copy seen by the Journal.

Dr. Gao, who was in Beijing trying to coordinate between local and national officials, was so exasperated that in a call with his U.S. counterpart, he came close to tears, according to people briefed on the conversation.

The NHC’s efforts to control the flow of information weren’t entirely successful.

Around midday on Jan. 3, a team of researchers at the Shanghai Public Health Clinic Center of Fudan University received a sample from a Wuhan hospital and started to sequence the genome without knowing anything about the patient or a potential link to the outbreak, according to people familiar with the matter.

In the early hours of Jan. 5, they said, a researcher who was working late saw the results: It said “very similar to SARS-type coronavirus.”

The team—led by Zhang Yongzhen, who also works at the China CDC—noticed something else: a gene for a “spike protein” on the pathogen’s surface that closely resembled the one used by the SARS-causing virus to bind to human cells. That indicated human-to-human transmission was very likely.

They sent an internal notice about their findings to the NHC that day, warning that the virus could likely spread via the respiratory tract and advising appropriate measures in public places.

No such measures were adopted for another two weeks. Nor were the results released publicly for several days.

On Jan. 9, a day after the Journal reported that China was dealing with a new coronavirus, a Chinese official publicly confirmed that for the first time. Still, it didn’t publish the genome—information that is essential for designing test kits.

Two days later, the Shanghai team’s work was published online not through official Chinese channels, but by a University of Sydney virologist, Edward Holmes, with whom Dr. Zhang had often worked. Dr. Zhang declined to comment.

Dr. Holmes said he was aware of the NHC’s Jan. 3 notice prohibiting public release at the time. “We decided to go ahead because this was an issue of such global public health importance that it just had to be done,” he said.

The following day, the NHC officially shared the genome with the world.

艰难的决定

你说的这个二宝到底是不是你自己。

二宝什么也不做,跑来跑去,跑到哪儿玩到哪儿。虽然个人发展不起来,到现在朵拉住上大房子他还在住帐篷,但也能沾到朵拉辛苦建设的光。基础建设有正外部性,挡不住它会溢出到二宝身上。只要出得帐篷,各种福利一样享受,连级别也跟朵拉一样。毕竟他们俩都在一个岛上,级别跟岛走。

搭便车,就是这么爽。

终于有一天,二宝偷偷采了朵拉植下的摇钱树。朵拉积怒已久,顺势爆发。

太不公平!我要毁掉你!朵拉喊。

等等,朵拉,毁掉是什么意思?爸爸告诉你,我们家绝不允许打人。

细问之下,朵拉讲了计划。原来,游戏事游戏了,她的毁灭计划是在二宝的帐篷外设置一层层栅栏,把二宝封锁在内,让他出不了门。出不了门,自然就享受不了朵拉的建设成果。

Zoombomber crashes court hearing on Twitter hack with Pornhub video

法庭视频会议没有设密码😂

The Zoombombing occurred today when the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida in Tampa held a bail hearing for Graham Clark, who previously pleaded not guilty and is reportedly being held on $725,000 bail. Clark faces 30 felony charges related to the July 15 Twitter attack in which accounts of famous people like Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and Joe Biden were hijacked and used to push cryptocurrency scams. Hackers also accessed direct messages for 36 high-profile account holders.

Today, Judge Christopher Nash ruled against a request to lower Clark’s bail amount. But before that, the judge “shut down the hearing for a short time” when arguments were interrupted by “pornography… foul language and rap music,” Fox 13 reporter Gloria Gomez wrote on Twitter.

“I’m removing people as quickly as I can whenever a disruption happens,” Nash said after one Zoombomber interrupted a lawyer. A not-safe-for-work portion of the hearing was posted by a Twitter user here. The first 47 seconds are safe to watch and includes Nash’s comment about removing Zoombombers, but the rest of the video includes the Pornhub clip that caused Nash to shut down the hearing.

中美官员将于8月15日会面,评估第一阶段贸易协议执行情况

刘鹤过来给美国划红线。

会谈的重点将是第一阶段贸易协议,该协议要求中国承诺两年内从美国采购2,000亿美元的产品。尽管中国在近几个月增加了对美国大豆、猪肉、玉米和其他农产品的采购,但到目前为止,中国仍远未达到实现这一目标所需的采购速度。

上述人士表示,预计中方首席谈判代表刘鹤还将就美国打压中国科技公司提出关切。刘鹤的职责范围就包括中国科技领域。

其中一位人士称,刘鹤会想要讨论美国如何能在日常政策行动方面避免让中国感到意外。

哈尔滨新冠感染家庭的后续困境

类似的惨剧到底还要重复多少遍?

让部分哈尔滨家庭感到困苦的另一个问题是,自己的家人去世后,由于死亡原因被确认为是原有的基础病,费用报销未能落实。李乐81岁的父亲在哈医大一附院院感暴发后,在发热门诊隔离了半个月后直至去世,去世前几小时,医生曾告诉他其父亲确诊新冠肺炎,但死因的确认十分复杂。李乐一家为给父亲治病,医药费自费部分约有4、5万元,他认为,医院应当对这部分进行减免,并赔偿一定的精神损失费,这一诉求遭到院方拒绝。

一名参与过哈尔滨新冠疫情救治的医生向财新记者表示,哈尔滨院感确有患者在新冠感染后死亡,人数约为9人,且经过讨论后,直接死亡原因未强调新冠感染。

医院方面也有观点认为,大多数感染新冠的病人确实死于高血压糖尿病继发的一些脏器功能衰竭。其中,新冠感染也是一个诱发基础病加重的重要因素,但究竟死因是以什么为主,不好定论。

(略)

李乐的父亲与陈某同住一间病房。他父亲多年前多次发生脑出血,约5、6年前再也无法行动。3月28日,李乐家人发现父亲有些发热,29日经120转送至哈医大一院。李乐猜测父亲是褥疮发炎,但医生判断可能是因为流食呛到肺里发炎,让其住进了呼吸内科。

4月9日,医生告诉李乐的母亲,父亲病情平稳,应该很快就能出院,但10日,医院突然让所有12楼患者搬至13楼,“他们说过年的时候医生和护士都没有休年假,现在要休年假,让我们搬去13层,也有医生和护士给大家治疗,就这样把别的人都转走了”,李乐说。陈某病房的患者则当时并未搬走。

张雅记得医生当时说12楼要全面消杀,并让所有人进行新冠病毒检测。张雅说,13日上午,院方让除陈某病房以外的其他患者及家属从13楼搬回12楼,但到了中午,许多病人便被催着出院,送去一间宾馆进行集中隔离,而她母亲的病当时尚未治好,呼吸困难,宾馆不愿接收,让其自行回家隔离。在张雅看来,后续处置延误是她妈妈看病不及时而去世的原因之一。

(略)

张雅人在外地,在父母在家隔离期间,每日与母亲视频,“当时就发现我妈的状况越来越差,我估计那个时候已经被传染上了,整个人越来越瘦,后面人已经瘦到脱相脱骨的那种感觉。”张雅形容。

张雅说,她母亲当时表示,等隔离期满了,自己去医院抽个腹水就没问题了,但她和其他家属一致劝她,应该早点就医。4月20日,即她母亲在家隔离一周时,他们打了120,并在电话里说了自己的父母曾在哈医大一院住过、目前仍在隔离期的情况,救护车将其送至哈医大二院。

抽血、CT、核酸检测,在进行完多种检查后,张雅母亲的身体已经明显虚弱,“到CT那,人就不行了,是我爸把我妈抱上的CT床,后来整个人嘴都张不开了。”张雅说,经过医生抢救,21日凌晨4点,妈妈被推入留观室。

张雅的父亲在当天上午回了一趟哈医大一院,办当时因匆忙出院而未办齐的手续,但在办手续过程中,医生表示不让其离开,因为张雅的母亲检测出核酸阳性,确诊新冠肺炎,因此让其父亲就地隔离。

“我爸说他接受隔离,但自己来这边办手续也是医大二院让办的,他说你们让我回医大二院接受隔离,我要待在我老伴身边,但医院不同意。12点多钟,他就收到了我妈去世的消息,然后我爸就在那边崩溃了。”张雅说。

(略)

在呼吸内科病房清空后,李乐的父亲和护工转至发热门诊隔离,但仅一周之后,护工被确认核酸检测阳性,由于症状较轻,送至黑龙江省传染病医院,李乐瘫痪的父亲自此一个人住在发热门诊。

自护工转院后,李乐每一次接到医院的电话,父亲的情况都在逐渐变差,“我爸入院时就是一个褥疮,后来胰腺也发炎,胆囊也发炎,心脏也不好了,肺也不好了,(仿佛)所有脏器都被攻击了。”

4月28日中午,李乐接到医院电话,院方称,他的父亲确诊感染新冠,需要转到哈医大一院群力分院,让他来签字同意转院。由于转院过程全程闭环,李乐见不到父亲,他签完字后便赶忙回家照顾独自在家的8岁的孩子,但此后接连接到数个电话,“还没到家呢,医院就打电话来说我父亲情况危急,需要抢救。到家附近了,医院说,我父亲已经没有抢救价值了,年纪又大,又有基础病,说接着抢救老人也挺遭罪的。”李乐告诉医院,那就别让老人遭罪了,当天下午,他父亲就去世了。

李乐父亲的死亡原因报告中未出现新冠肺炎的说法。此前其父亲核酸检测曾呈弱阳性,但去世前最后一次检测结果未出,医生告诉李乐,根据“疑似从有”原则,他不能接触其父亲遗体,将由医院穿衣装袋送至火葬场。不过,医生在后续告知中又称其父亲没有感染新冠,“去世以后(医院)告诉我,最后做了一次核酸,你爸又转阴性了。”李乐先后被七八次告知其父亲曾做过核酸检测,但无论是电子还是纸质报告,都始终未见。

在亲人去世后,张雅和李乐都被告知不能见遗体,张雅母亲和李乐父亲的遗体均被送至距离哈医大一院一小时车程的平房火葬场,期间不让陪同。他们称,那是专门火化新冠病人的火葬场,但这一点并未获平房火葬场确认。

在李乐父亲死后,那些留在发热门诊的生活用品,如粉碎机、床垫、衣物等,也立即被处理,价值几百元,一样都不让家属带走。

(略)

刘景作为早已治愈的无症状感染者,也面临职场“歧视”,他曾出去应聘开通勤车的工作,但公司听说他曾经感染过新冠,都不敢用,原先就职的单位目前既不解聘他,也不给他安排工作和开工资。

刘景说,他知道单位这么做不合规,但自己感染新冠后的确给单位造成了巨大的经济损失,他也不好意思告发单位,只希望单位能够给他开个证明,好让他去申领社区补助。
