he Pudong International Airport held the largest emergency drill in China’s civil aviation history on Friday to test its response capabilities amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The comprehensive exercise took place on the airport’s No. 6 apron. China’s civil aviation regulator, the Civil Aviation Administration of China, sent a supervision team to guide the exercise.

The drill featured 12 simulated emergency situations, including a bomb threat, a plane going off the runway during landing and a fire aboard an aircraft due to a leaking lithium battery. The airport authority, rescue crews and other personnel all participated in resolving these emergencies.

Rescuers also practiced quarantine and coronavirus prevention measures, including the administering of nucleic acid tests, temperature checks, epidemiological investigation and quarantined transferring.
