Giving birth during lockdown
Jabs open to kids
Booking windows to vaccinate children aged 3 to 5 years opened in Minhang on November 18. Vaccinations officially started two days later on November 20. Volunteers from schools across Pujiang Village, such as Pujiang No. 2 kindergarten, helped at the vaccination booths to keep children in order and relieve any anxiety before injections.
Fingertip blood tests
A non-invasive blood glucose testing device that does not require fingertip blood collection has been piloted in Meilong and Zhuanqiao towns. The device was developed by Shanghai Jiao Tong University Health Center where results are connected directly to a mobile app. So far, 851 samples have been collected in Minhang, with results exceeding 80% accuracy. Compared to conventional blood glucose measuring devices, this one prevents needle-related infections and has a standby time of approximately 21 days.
Companies in Minhang have begun to support and adopt a zero-carbon packaging strategy to promote environmental sustainability. One such company is Taoli Foods which produces baked goods using sustainable packaging. The initiative has been supported by Shanghai State Power Investment Corporation with photovoltaic power generation and smart integrated energy services.
Gumei School has created a variety of options to allow students to learn beyond the classroom. From red-scarf councilors and security guards and even to reporters, the school has devised leadership opportunities to allow students to serve the wider community, immersing them both in local culture and order.
Qibao Town has begun to lay underground circuits and piping, remove overhead wires and replace old meter boxes in areas south of Qingnian Road, north of Fuqiang Street, west of Hengli Road and east of Yutang Street in Qibao Old Street. The project on Qibao Old Street is expected to be completed early next year and will ensure the elimination of potential power hazards.
Rural 'smart' parking
Pujiang has piloted the promotion of "smart" parking management in its rural areas. Qinlao Village took the lead with infrastructure facilities having been set up at its 12 entrances. Parking fees will be automatically deducted from electronic payment systems as no man is in service at the toll booths. The "smart" service will later be promoted to other villages in the town. There are 38 villages in Pujiang.
New sport center
The Junlian Sports Center in Zhuanqiao Town will soon be in operation, fully equipped with a swimming pool, aerobics room, spinning bikes and multi-functional courts that cater to all age groups and activity levels. The center will primarily serve residents of the Junlian area, with a population of over 30,000. It will soon become an instrumental part of the community, further popularizing the idea of creating a healthy "15-minute social circle" with sport life and activity.
