State-run hospital facilities such as Yiwu Maternal and Child Health Hospital and Yiwu Central Hospital have ramped up operations of nucleic acid testing since August 2.
As reported by the Yiwu Municipal Health Bureau, as of August 7, three nucleic acid testing bases in the city are currently in operation, with a daily nucleic acid testing capacity of 250,000 tubes. There are also mobile nucleic acid sampling vehicles in the suburbs.
However, one of these nucleic acid sampling vehicles had a rare accident on August 6. One video recorded by locals shows that an accident prevented the vehicle from testing people. It was not any accident; it was a consequence of the so-called Tofu projects. When the car parked in front of a village gate, it fell into a hole and was trapped there.
