Active Case Finding with Case Management: the Key to Tackling the COVID-19 Pandemic
The authors describe China’s strategies for prevention and control of COVID-19 (containment and suppression) and their application, from the perspective of the COVID-19 experience to date in China.
Although China has contained severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and nearly stopped indigenous transmission, a strong suppression effort must continue to prevent re-establishment of community transmission from importation-related cases.
The authors believe that case finding and management, with identification and quarantine of close contacts, are vitally important containment measures and are essential in China’s pathway forward. They describe the next steps planned in China that follow the containment effort, and believe that sharing countries’ experiences will help the global community manage the COVID-19 pandemic by identifying what works in the struggle against SARS-CoV-2.
