Notice on Strengthening the Prevention and Control of Imported COVID-19 Cases

Given the surge of coronavirus cases beyond China, the risk of imported cases from overseas is gradually increasing. Attaching great importance to the health of inbound travelers from overseas, Suzhou has been implementing same and equal prevention and control measures for both Chinese citizens and overseas personnel. In order to effectively respond to the risk of imported COVID-19 cases in a timely and effective manner, promote the sound economic and social development of the city and its further opening-up, the followings are hereby notified to strengthen the prevention and control of imported cases from overseas:

I. Tighten up epidemic prevention and control measures for inbound travelers

1. Suzhou has set up transfer service stations for epidemic prevention and control at the air ports of Beijing and Shanghai, as well as Nanjing Lukou International Airport, and Sunan Shuofang International Airport. Inbound travelers who are destined for Suzhou and have travel history of hard-hit countries (regions) will be transferred to Suzhou in a controlled manner and put under 14-day quarantine at designated places by the county-level cities and districts of Suzhou in accordance with the principle of territorial management. In principle, those under quarantine for medical observation should pay the quarantine costs for their own.

2. Inbound travelers who enter China via ports other than the abovementioned ones within 14 days and arrive in Suzhou on their own with travel history of hard-hit country (region) should contact and report to the local community in advance. A timely and truthful report to their employers or communities is mandatory upon their arrival in Suzhou. They will have to undergo a 14-day quarantine for medical observation at designated places starting from the date of their arrival in Suzhou at their own expenses.

3. If any inbound traveler is found to have fever, cough and other symptoms, he/she should be sent to fever clinics immediately. All the close contacts of such persons should be quarantined at designated places for observation. A nucleic acid testing will be performed to persons quarantined at designated places on the day of being quarantined and the day before the quarantine is lifted.

II. Fully implement responsibilities of various entities

4. Based on the postponements of school reopening, universities in Suzhou should take the initiative of contacting foreign students and teachers who are still overseas and informing them not to return before the school restarts officially. As for those who have returned already, their universities must have the relevant information reported and strictly implement epidemic prevention and control measures for them.

5. Hotels and guesthouses should take the responsibility of accommodation registration of inbound travelers, both Chinese and overseas, and timely report the accommodation registration information to public security departments in accordance with the law. They also need to provide related services such as body temperature check and health inquiries for the inbound travelers staying there.

6. Communities/villages should continue to strengthen the epidemic prevention and control efforts, carry out thorough investigation on any addition of inbound travelers, and have their personal information registered, temperature checked, and health condition monitored.

7. Enterprises should investigate on their staff regarding entry or travel history of badly hit countries (regions). Should there be any such cases, they should have the case reported and relevant staff isolated.

8. County-level cities/districts should offer guidance on the epidemic prevention and control for inbound travelers from overseas to grass-roots levels including townships, neighborhoods and communities/villages, so as to avoid oversight or losing control at the lower end.

III. Improve services for epidemic prevention and control

9. Inbound travelers coming to Suzhou should apply for "Suzhou Health Code" or "Jiangsu Health QR Code" in advance (see attached for the QR codes) for health declaration. As for those studying, doing business, working abroad, please take active protective measures in the country (region), and seek medical treatment immediately in case of any suspected symptoms. Contact Chinese embassies or consulates timely in any emergency. Parents and relatives at home can also consult embassies or consulates in relevant regions.

10. Inbound travelers receiving home-based quarantine or quarantine at designated places shall be taken care of in a well-organized and humanistic manner. Differences in religion, diet and customs should be fully respected and practical problems shall be dealt with appropriately. Their daily necessities shall also be guaranteed.

11. For inbound travelers who are found to be infected or suspected of having COVID-19 during their trips to Suzhou from overseas, the medical costs incurred can be covered by the insurance policies if they are China's health insurance participants, or be paid according to contract policies if they've bought commercial insurances. Otherwise, they will have to bear the medical costs out of their own pockets. If the traveler is proved to have difficulty in paying medical bills, the fees can be covered with medical aid according to relevant laws and regulations.

IV. Strictly investigate legal responsibilities

12. Inbound travelers to Suzhou from overseas shall be held accountable for the information they filled in health declarations and travel history statements. If they deliberately conceal their own infections, contacts with the infected or travel history of hard-hit countries (regions), refuse to take medical tests or abide by epidemic prevention and control policies of relevant localities, or commit other violations of the epidemic prevention and control order, they will bear legal responsibility in accordance with the Law of the PRC on Penalties for Administration for Public Security, the Law of the PRC on Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases, and the Opinions on Further Strengthening Border Health and Quarantine Work and Legally Punishing Criminal Offenses That Impede Border Health and Quarantine, and be blacklisted in the personal credit system. They will also have to bear all expenses for medical treatment if infected or suspected of the coronavirus.

13. Any departments, enterprises or institutions, and relevant sub-districts, communities/villages who deliberately conceal information about inbound travelers from overseas to Suzhou, or fail to fulfill their prevention responsibilities and cause serious results, will be held legally accountable according to applicable laws, disciplines and rules.

Currently, averting imported COVID-19 cases from overseas has become a critical task in the epidemic prevention and control of Suzhou. All county-level cities/districts, units and citizens must remain highly vigilant and further strengthen the people's defense line of joint prevention and control. We shall resolutely prevent the occurrence and spreading of imported cases in Suzhou and consolidate the hard-won epidemic control progress.

Please dial the informant hotline 12345 should there be any violations in the epidemic prevention and control of imported cases.

Handbook of COVID-19 Prevention and Treatment [FAHZU] PDF

Editor's Note:

Faced with an unknown virus, sharing and collaboration are the best remedy. 

The publication of this Handbook is one of the best ways to mark the courage and wisdom our healthcare workers have demonstrated over the past two months. 

Thanks to all those who have contributed to this Handbook, sharing the invaluable experience with healthcare colleagues around the world while saving the lives of patients. 

Thanks to the support from healthcare colleagues in China who have provided experience that inspires and motivates us. 

Thanks to Jack Ma Foundation for initiating this program, and to AliHealth for the technical support, making this Handbook possible to support the fight against the epidemic. 

The Handbook is available to everyone for free. However, due to the limited time, there might be some errors and defects. Your feedback and advice are highly welcomed!

Editor-in-Chief of the Handbook of COVID-19 Prevention and Treatment
Chairman of The First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine


This is an unprecedented global war, and mankind is facing the same enemy, the novel corona- virus. And the first battlefield is the hospital where our soldiers are the medical workers.
To ensure that this war can be won we must first make sure that our medical staff is guaranteed sufficient resources, including experience and technologies. Also, we need to make sure that the hospital is the battleground where we eliminate the virus, not where the virus defeats us.
Therefore, the jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Foundation have convened a group of medical experts who have just returned from the frontlines of fighting the pandemic. With the support of The First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine (FAHZU), they quickly published a guidebook on the clinical experience of how to treat this new coronavirus. The treatment guide offers advice and reference against the pandemic for medical staff around the world who are about to join the war.
My special thanks goes out to the medical staff from FAHZU. While taking huge risks in treating COVID-19 patients, they recorded their daily experience which is reflected in this Handbook. Over the past 50 days, 104 confirmed patients have been admitted to FAHZU, including 78 severe and critically ill ones. Thanks to the pioneering efforts of medical staff and the application of new technologies, to date, we have witnessed a miracle. No staff were infected, and there were no missed diagnosis or patient deaths.
Today, with the spread of the pandemic, these experiences are the most valuable sources of information and the most important weapon for medical workers on the frontline. This is a brand-new disease, and China was the first to suffer from the pandemic. Isolation, diagnosis, treatment, protective measures, and rehabilitation have all started from scratch. WE hope that this Handbook can provide doctors and nurses in other affected areas valuable information so they don't have to enter the battlefield alone.
This pandemic is a common challenge faced by mankind in the age of globalization. At this moment, sharing resources, experiences and lessons, regardless of who you are, is our only chance to win. The real remedy for this pandemic is not isolation, but cooperation.
This war has just begun.

Thanks to the below great doctors and editors!

A letter from SIG's CEO, Rolf Stangl to SIP

Dear Party Secretary Wu Qingwen and Chairman Ding Lixin of Suzhou Industrial Park,

This Chinese Spring Festival has become very special in this year due to the outbreak of novel coronavirus pneumonia. Everyone has to stay at home with no hustle and bustle like in the old government actively encouraged the resumption of production with precise epidemic prevention and control, and introduced a series of preferential policies for enterprises to minimize the economic impact from the epidemic. I share the same feeling when I regularly learn all kinds of information from my Chinese team even as I live far away in Switzerland. Although the epidemic
 has gradually spread to other countries I am still full of confidence in China's defeat over the epidemic and China's leading role worldwide in tackling the crisis.

SIG Combibloc, as the global leading supplier of aseptic carton and filling system solution provider, has been providing products which are categorized as "livelihood-concern products"during the
 epidemic. Additionally, our Chinese team quickly set up the SIG risk management committee at the very beginning of the epidemic, strictly implementing government instructions of epidemic prevention and control while keeping the production, and we have ensured no confirmed case occurred in our plants until today. On the fifth day of CNY, Member of the Standing Committee of Jiangsu Provincial Party Committee, Party Secretary of Suzhou Municipal Committee Lan Shaomin and his team accompanied by you visited SIG Combibloc Suzhou, provided valuable
 instructions on the implementation of epidemic prevention and controlling policy in SIG Combibloc Suzhou, and made corresponding arrangements for the problems we were encountering. The leaders of Investment Promotion Bureau and CSSD proactively contacted us in the next week as close follow up solve practical problems such as blocked logistics transportation and commuting shuttle bus operations. During the epidemic period, the government also took great initiative to coordinate the labor and electricity power problems for the SIG's third Asia-Pacific plant with the construction started last November, which accomplished a smooth work resumption for the first batch on February 2. There is too much support from government like this to mention all of it here! Therefore, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Suzhou Industrial Park Management Committee and the leaders who are caring about the development of SIG Combibloc Suzhou on behalf of the board and senior management of SIG Combibloc Group!

SIG Combiloc's business will be impacted in the first half of 2020 influenced by the epidemic. Our risk management committee has still immediately approved a donation of RMB 1 million for the
 prevention and control of epidemic, among which, RMB 500,000 was remitted to the Charity Association account of Suzhou Industrial Park on January 30, and another RMB 500,000 was recently used to purchase Yili and Mengniu products for Wuhan shortly. Rainbow comes after a storm and we are fully convinced that the Chinese government has the ability and perseverance to overcome the epidemic, and the Chinese market is still full of potential for the long run!

Once again, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to you and extend our invitation to you to visit our headquarters in Switzerland when the epidemic is over, continuing our successful cooperation and win-win development!
