This wave of epidemics in Quanzhou has swept through almost all subordinate counties, districts and cities, with the exception of Anxi. On March 30, the number of newly confirmed cases in the Quanzhou area dropped to 8, and there were 121 asymptomatic infections. In the list of origins, Anxi County, famous for its rich production of Tieguanyin, was out of the way again and still maintained a record of zero new additions.

1Is Tieguanyin a natural barrier for epidemic prevention?

After the outbreak of the epidemic in Quanzhou, Anxi has completed four rounds of nucleic acid tests for all staff, and the results were all negative.

Since the opening of the Longmen Tunnel connecting Tong'an, Anxi has not been blocked. It is directly connected with most of the existing expressways in surrounding counties and cities. The total mileage of highways in the county is 5,112 kilometers, including 133 kilometers of expressways, 299 kilometers of national and provincial trunk lines, and 4,680 kilometers of rural roads.


In 2020, Anxi also planned three expressways from Anxiang, Da'an and Anxi to Longyan, so that the township can be connected to the expressway within 30 minutes.

But it is surprising that this well-connected traffic environment did not drag Anxi into the raging epidemic. The surrounding cities of Anxi have experienced many rounds of repeated epidemics, but Anxi has always been at peace. Even though there was a process of implementing the lockdown, it was withdrawn overnight.

Of course, it cannot be denied that the level of epidemic prevention and control in Anxi is closely related to the "proper management" of the local government. From a scientific point of view, it is not unreasonable for Tieguanyin to become a natural barrier for Anxi's epidemic prevention.

Anxi is the hometown of Tieguanyin, and Tieguanyin is the main economic crop of Anxi. Anxi has a population of 1.2 million, 80% of which are engaged in the tea industry, and the income of the tea industry accounts for 56% of the net income of farmers in Anxi. Entering the county, you can see tea hills everywhere.

2 Methylated EGCG and theaflavins in tea

Perhaps it is every household who is involved in tea production, which has made great contributions to Anxi's fight against the epidemic.

Liu Zhonghua, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and professor of Hunan Agricultural University, once concluded that tea contains methylated EGCG and theaflavins, which can inhibit the activity of the new coronavirus. The methylated EGCG and theaflavins contained in Anxi Tieguanyin are more abundant, which makes Anxi Tieguanyin better in inhibiting virus, antioxidant capacity and improving immunity.

Several cases detected in Anxi in the past support this conclusion.

After the outbreak of the new crown epidemic in 2020, 2 cases were imported from Wuhan, including 1 case in Guanqiao, who lived with his family and played mahjong overnight with 3 players, but all the close contacts were not infected; 1 case was imported from Xiamen in 2021, There are many highly close contacts, of which only 1 case is positive; 1 case is imported from abroad in 2021, and the county has zero infection.

Judging from the results of the investigation later, these close contacts basically maintained the habit of drinking Anxi Tieguanyin every day.

Tea has been regarded as having the effect of detoxification and expelling heat since ancient times. In March 2021, in the "Nutritional Dietary Guidelines for the Prevention and Treatment of Pneumonia Infected by Novel Coronavirus" issued by the Chinese Nutrition Association and the Chinese Medical Doctor Association, tea received special courtesy. The "Guidance" clearly states that patients should drink 1500-2000ml of tea every day.

It is not difficult to understand why people from Anxi who are with Tieguanyin every day have such strong immunity under the new crown epidemic.
