It provides a basis for drawing a clear chain of transmission, identifying close contacts, taking quarantine measures and delineating disinfection areas.Residents’ travel history and activity track are the focus of “migration”, where they have been, who they have met, and how long they stay. Migration staff find clues through telephone inquiries, identify contacts and sub-contacts, and timely report data to effectively block the spread of the epidemic as soon as possible.The main mode of work for the flow staff is telephone inquiries.”I have no time to eat and drink. I am busy from 8:30 a.m. to 3 or 4 a.m. When I feel really sleepy, I open the folding bed and rest for two or three hours.
