A Second Coronavirus Outbreak In China ‘INEVITABLE’ Due To Loopholes In The Health Screening For People Arriving From Abroad.

China is facing a looming new coronavirus outbreak, China’s state-run newspaper Global Times has warned. Pictured, residents cheer as members of a medical assistance team from Chongqing depart after helping with the locals in Xiaogan city, China’s central Hubei province.

A second coronavirus outbreak in China is ‘highly likely’ and ‘even inevitable’ as the pandemic escalates, China’s state newspaper has warned.

Loopholes in the health screening process and inadequate quarantine measures for people arriving from abroad are the main factors for the looming new crisis, according to state-run Global Times.

The stark warning comes as former epicentre Hubei Province, apart from its capital Wuhan, is set to lift travel restrictions tonight after being locked down for two months.

It also comes as Wuhan has registered its first native infection, a doctor, after reporting zero cases for five consecutive days.

A high proportion of asymptomatic cases – people who carry the virus but show no symptoms – is another contributing factor to the potential outbreak, said Global Times in an article published yesterday.

One-in-three positive coronavirus tests are from ‘silent carriers’ who show no symptoms, according to classified Chinese government data viewed by South China Morning Post.

Even though the number of daily cases has dropped to zero in Wuhan, where the epidemic emerged in December, the city is not counting in asymptomatic infections, sparing public fears that they can be a ticking time bomb.

Faced with public pressure, Wuhan Municipal Health Commission yesterday released a statement, saying all asymptomatic cases would need to be isolated in quarantine camps for 14 days.

These silent carriers would be identified when officials screen the close contacts of confirmed patients and investigate cluster infections, according to the document.

The stark warning comes as former epicentre Hubei Province, apart from its capital Wuhan, is set to lift travel restrictions after a two-month lock down. Pictured, staff members line up at attention as they prepare to spray disinfectant at Wuhan Railway Station in Wuhan on March 24

Fares will be automatically adjusted against the increase in fuel prices – GPRTU (See Details)

The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has announced that prices will automatically be adjusted whenever petrol prices increase by 10%.

The union says a 15% increase in transportation costs will be repeated whenever fuel prices reach 10%.

Richard Yaw Amankwah, GPRTU’s Deputy Secretary-General for Operations, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that the union’s decision to estimate transportation costs and fuel prices was intended to benefit the industry.

“We have said that whenever the cost of petrol increases by 10% or more, we will increase fares,” he said.

“We are still looking at the cost. We are just wasting our time. “The same amount will be spent on travel expenses when it reaches 10%,” he told GNA.

On March 1, 2022, the prices of the previous petrol and diesel pump prices increased by 30 liters per liter, to GHC 8.20.
Some market experts predict that if nothing is done to reduce the cedi value of the dollar against the dollar, petrol prices could rise to GHC9.0 a liter.

The price volatility of petroleum products is due to the continued increase of Brent Crude in international markets.

The Institute for Energy Security (IES) predicted a 4% increase in petrol and diesel prices this week, citing cedi performance against the dollar as a major factor.

The IES has ruled that cedi is down 4.11 percent to close GHC6.85 to the dollar in the previous price window.

The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC) also predicts that prices for petrol, diesel and LPG by 4.6%, 3.4% and 2.5% will increase by 2.5% from March 1, 2022.

In the First Price Window of March 2022, it predicted that petrol and diesel would be GHC8.190 a liter and LPG would be GHC9.163 per kilogram.
