08:00 鈥 隆Buenos d铆as! Las localidades chinas de Dongning y Suifenhe, en la provincia nororiental de Heilongjiang, han comenzado una campa帽a de an谩lisis de 谩cido nucleico entre su poblaci贸n tras detectar dos contagios locales del coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 este jueves.

Por el momento, Suifenhe -de 70.000 habitantes, por los 230.000 de Dongning- ha decretado la restricci贸n de movimiento, y requiere resultados negativos de test de 谩cido nucleico antes de permitir la salida del municipio.

Durante el segundo trimestre del a帽o, Suifenhe fue escenario de un rebrote debido al influjo de ciudadanos chinos que regresaban de la fronteriza Rusia a trav茅s de la frontera terrestre.7
