The Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council Will Carry out Special Supervision on COVID-19 Prevention and Control in Autumn and Winter in 17 Provinces
On the 18th, it was learned from the National Health Committee that the joint prevention and control mechanism of the State Council will carry out special supervision on the prevention and control of novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic in autumn and winter in 17 provinces in late September, urging all localities to implement various prevention and control measures, plug loopholes, fill short boards and strong and weak items in time, and resolutely prevent the epidemic from rebounding in autumn and winter.
Ma Xiaowei, director of the National Health and Safety Commission and head of the comprehensive team of the State Council's joint defense and control mechanism, said at the mobilization training meeting of the State Council's joint defense and control mechanism for the special supervision of novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic prevention and control in autumn and winter 2020 held on the same day. At present, the epidemic situation is still spreading all over the world. The risk of sporadic cases and local outbreaks in China still exists. Respiratory diseases such as novel coronavirus pneumonia and influenza are intertwined in autumn and winter, making the prevention and control task arduous. This special inspection should focus on the key points of the inspection, and conduct in-depth and detailed inspections to ensure the effectiveness of the inspection.
Ma Xiaowei said that it is necessary to focus on urging all localities to compact the "four responsibilities" and achieve the "five have and three strictness". It is necessary to implement various measures of "external prevention and import, internal prevention and rebound". It is necessary to adhere to the principle of prevention of people and multiple diseases together, to strengthen key links such as ports and food transportation and processing, to implement prevention and control measures in key places such as schools and communities, to strengthen prevention and control of hospital sense in medical institutions, and to implement the "four early" measures. At the same time, preparations should be made for nucleic acid testing, medical treatment in medical institutions, allocation of centralized isolation sites, storage of prevention and control materials, personnel and emergency support. To ensure that personnel, equipment, facilities, materials and capabilities are in place, to ensure that once an aggregated epidemic situation is found, nucleic acid detection for all personnel in the region will be completed within 5-7 days, and the spread of the epidemic situation will be controlled to the greatest extent.
Ma Xiaowei said that this special inspection should devote most of its time and energy to problem verification, unannounced visits, random spot checks, on-the-spot interviews and other aspects. It should dare to touch hard, focus on finding problems and promoting their solution, and do not take the "designated route" or look at the "demonstration bonsai".
