How to Complete the New Mandatory Residential Registration (SZ)
11 Feb 2020
This is it. The situation many have been worrying about since the novel Coronavirus began making headlines. It is the start of a true test of resilience for Shenzhen and its people.
Despite the many actions already taken, Guangdong has seen the highest rate of NCP infections outside of Hubei Province. At 24:00 February 10th, that number stood at 1177 infections. Despite a slowdown in the rate of new infections outside of Hubei Province, yesterday was the virus's deadliest day so far. Now that millions are returning to Shenzhen after their extended Spring Festival holiday and self isolation, the city's number of infected is sure to increase.
Luckily, Shenzhen has not been sitting idly by waiting for a disaster. She has been working diligently to beef up her medical resources, prepare citizens and management teams with a steady stream of increased information and guidance, and has been establishing various mechanisms to execute lifesaving command and control measures as needed. One such measure; which was announced last Sunday, is the new residential registration requirement.
Since most of the cases of infection in Shenzhen have come from those with a direct physical presence in the epidemic areas, or from people who have had contact with those who were in the epidemic areas, it is crucial to identify, isolate, and provide professional medical treatment for them early on if we are going to keep everyone safe. The longer they go without treatment, the higher the chance they do not survive, and the higher the risk of them infecting others.
Every person entering the city since this last weekend is already being asked to register their personal details and travel history upon entry. That will do a lot to help. Now, in order to stop the virus in its tracks, everyone in the city is being asked to register with their building management, who will be keeping track of all entries and exits into and out of buildings.
The registration process for this new tracking system is simple; however, it is only in Chinese at the moment, so we have prepared some translations provided by the friendly English-speaking staff at NSIC to help you get through it. Please do your best to complete this information accurately and completely. If you need any assistance, the staff at NSIC are happy to help.
