DNA confirmed China Air Crash Victims Identified

All 132 China Eastern Airlines Flight Crash Victims Identified Through DNA Analysis. This was stated by the Civil Aviation Administration of China. 


Zhu Tao, director of the Aviation Security Bureau under the Civil Aviation Administration of China:

DNA matching of the dead has now been completed. Specialists are working on a plan to classify and transfer the remains and personal belongings to relatives.”


Liu Kaihui, Director of the Forensic Science Department of the Evidence Identification Center:

accident immediately drew up a work plan to identify the victims. To this end, we have established a special DNA comparison platform and set up working groups in 20 provinces to collect DNA samples from passengers from their homes and relatives. The last passenger was identified on Monday morning.”


The remains and belongings of the flight participants are currently in the Wuzhou Funeral Home, not far from where the plane crashed. Now the priority for the authorities is to provide psychological and medical assistance to the families of the victims.


Zhong Changzi, Mayor of Wuzhou City:

“We sent a psychological assistance team of almost 1,200 people to help the families of the victims. Among the specialists are medical workers and crisis psychologists.


On March 21, a China Eastern Airlines flight en route from Kunming to Guangzhou crashed in a mountainous area in Tengxian County, Guangxi. Zhuang Autonomous Region. The investigation into the causes of the crash continues. Two black boxes were found at the crash site. Now they are in Beijing for transcription. 


Shanghai tightens measures to combat COVID-19

China's economic center – Shanghai - began a new stage of mass PCR testing of city residents. At the same time, the authorities continue to tighten restrictive measures that have become a response to the increase in the incidence of coronavirus.


Starting with the introduction of a lockdown in individual residential complexes, the local authorities decided to move on to the closure of entire areas. So, the first without the right to enter and exit were residents of the quarters to the east and south of the Huangpu River. Next on the quarantine list are areas west of the metropolitan waterway. A full lockdown at this stage affected a quarter of Shanghai. For citizens, this means self-isolation, exclusively contactless delivery of essentials, the cessation of all public transport and all enterprises, with the exception of those whose services are vital for the population.

The city already has experience of fighting with outbreaks of COVID-19. For example, a kit for visiting a patient in emergency services is assembled in a matter of seconds. Such kits include a protective suit and face shield, disinfectant gel, gloves, shoe covers and medical garbage bags.


Hu Shicheng, Deputy Director of the Changshou Community Medical Center:

“Thanks to the fact that employees quickly assemble protection kits, this saves us almost half an hour with each call. It takes 60 seconds to pack a box and get in the car.”


The authorities of the metropolis are confident that such strict measures will help contain the spread of the virus, protect people's lives and health, and eventually come to zero incidence of COVID-19. Since mid-March, the number of asymptomatic carriers has risen markedly in Shanghai. Several thousand such cases are recorded per day. At the same time, only from 5 to 50 cases were officially detected infected with symptoms daily. .jpg" height="449" title="KP-78-12.jpg">

New engine for launch vehicles has been successfully tested

Calibration testing of a new-generation launch vehicle engine has been successfully completed in China, according to the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. The oxygen-hydrogen engine worked for 100 seconds. During this time - not a single error or failure. Tests confirmed the reliability of the engine. This is the key feature for performing deep space flights.


Ma Liya, representative of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation:

thrust of 50 tons was invented and developed in China. The calibration test is the last opportunity to check the operation of the engine on Earth. The completion of the tests means that the launch vehicle has reached the final stage of pre-flight preparation. Then it will be used to launch various modules of the Chinese space station.


Each of the launch vehicles of the Long March-5 series can be equipped with two high-power oxygen-hydrogen engines. Today, it is the most high-tech cryogenic liquid engine in China. About 20 more tests will be carried out to further check its performance.


Chinese cities resume production and improve supplies in the face of a new wave of COVID-19
< br> With the novel coronavirus outbreak, many Chinese cities face a double challenge. It is necessary not only to ensure stable daily supplies, but also to resume production from which quarantine restrictions have been lifted.


Agricultural and commercial departments in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province joined forces to arrange the delivery of emergency supplies. Local authorities emphasize: normal life must continue despite the fight against COVID-19.


The pandemic is affecting the cost of goods, but Shenyang residents can still buy basic food at the same price. The quality is also top notch. Local farmers cooperate with sellers of fresh vegetables, fruits and meat. This is how supply chains are formed linking agricultural land and consumers.


In Laisheng Village, where the daily vegetable output reaches one hundred tons, fresh vegetables are pre-processed and packaged at the distribution center. They are then delivered to supermarkets in urban areas.


Zhang Di, Head of Shenyang Fresh Food Distribution Center:

“All the vegetables in our company were collected from nearby farmers. We will deliver them to Shenyang supermarkets. In this way, we help local residents to sell their crops and provide market supplies during the epidemic.”


After the lifting of anti-COVID restrictions in Zhejiang province, the authorities began to systematically launch local production. To this end, green transport corridors have been developed and measures have been taken to disinfect the premises. For example, more than 14,000 children's clothing enterprises have already resumed work in the city of Zhili.


Digital technology has made Chinese agriculture more efficient

The efficiency of agriculture in China in recent years has been growing steadily. And one of the reasons is the use of advanced digital technologies and smart devices. This year, attention is focused on intelligent control systems and unmanned tractors. 
One of the most important achievements is an application that helps to monitor the growth of seedlings in real time.


Zhang Yafei, public relations director of an application development company:

“This is how the interface of an intelligent production line control system looks like. We have 18 such production lines in total. The system allows you to set up a workflow, set parameters and manage tasks remotely.


With the arrival of warm weather in the demonstration zone of smart agriculture, unmanned aerial vehicles entered the fields tractors. Their work is so precise that it ensures uniform sowing and optimal feeding efficiency.


New technologies have also found application in the south of the country, where a program to mechanize the cultivation of early rice began. This approach will allow for large-scale and standardized production. As part of this program, a rice cultivation center was put into operation in the village of Wuzhushan. Four sets of technological equipment guarantee the quality and quantity of seedlings.


Deng Longfei, Hanshou County Official, Hunan Province:
< i>

“Indoor seedlings are seven to eight times more efficient. It is very easy to work in the center. One machine can provide 5 hectares of field with rice seedlings. This means that four machines can plant 20 hectares of rice.”


More than 85% of rice seedlings in the region are grown in this way. A total of six technology seedling centers operate in Hanshou County, Hunan Province.

Heavy-duty drone tested on a high-rise construction project

A new type of drone developed in China successfully tested in the field. His first task was to deliver a load of 300 kilograms to a construction site located at an altitude of three kilometers above sea level.


This is the first time that a drone has been used to transport building materials in the highlands of China. A new power plant is being built in the mountains of Yunnan province. Due to the complexity of the terrain, traditional transportation methods are not suitable, as they can damage the local vegetation. The use of a new development - a heavy-duty cargo drone - gracefully solves this problem and opens up prospects for further construction in hard-to-reach areas.


Wang Fangmin, Project Manager:< /b>

“Here the height is 3000 meters. With the help of a drone, in just 10 minutes, we can lift 300 kilograms of materials to the top of the mountain to install a power transmission tower. Previously, we carried such goods with the help of caravans or by cable cars. The preparation of the route took more than two weeks, and the round trip took more than four hours.  


The new two-bladed drone can fly to a height of four and a half kilometers. The maximum flight time is two and a half hours, the drone can carry up to 5 tons of cargo per day. Now Chinese inventors are working on a more economical drone that can lift up to 800 kilograms of cargo into the air. It will be used in the construction of power lines throughout China.


Demand for telemedicine grows in China amid pandemic  

During the coronavirus pandemic, many online services, from shipping to finance, are experiencing explosive growth. Against this background, remote medical services stand out. Now patients do not need to go to hospitals to consult doctors or get prescriptions. 


Yu Gang, co-founder and CEO of an online medical platform:

“In this wave of COVID-19, our customer base has increased by 20%. Orders for medical equipment and protective products, including masks, gloves and hand sanitizers, increased by 60%.

According to statistics, 8 out of 10 people are ready to use online - service for communication with doctors. One of the reasons for the popularity of online medicine is the ability to get a second or even a third opinion, which gives users more information about the diagnosis.

Shanghai resident Zhou Kexin has been working from home for several weeks. She is constantly seen by the doctor for skin problems. The girl notes that she enjoys using video calls or correspondence with the doctor instead of going to the clinic.


Zhou Kexin, a resident of Shanghai:

“Waiting for an appointment in the hospital takes two to three hours. Although I also have to wait when I go to doctors online, at least I can do other things during this time.”

However, experts note that when solving medical problems, online services should only play an auxiliary role. role. 


Yu Gang, co-founder and CEO of online medical platform: 

< i> "I think that in the future, medical services will be a combination of online and offline, as each format has its own advantages and disadvantages."


Remote medical consultation helps the state to make medical services more accessible to the population. In addition, it prevents cross-infection when patients crowd in queues.

Swans returned from wintering to the Bayan-Bulak Nature Reserve

More than 3,000 wild swans returned to Bayan Bulak National Nature Reserve in northwest China. This is the largest swan reserve in the country.


It is located at the foot of the Tien Shan mountain system in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.
For these beautiful birds, which the Mongolian shepherds revered as angels, the local natural conditions are exceptionally favorable. Volunteers look after them in early spring.


“Coming back from wintering, swans spend a lot of time in flight. To replenish their energy, we, volunteers, feed them,” said one of the volunteer assistants of the reserve's employees.
