At present, the international epidemic is still at a high level, and my country continues to face enormous pressure from external defense imports and internal defense rebound. In current days, the number of newly approved regional cases and asymptomatic diseases in my country has continued to decline. Since May 5, the number of new local infections nationwide has been below 5,000 every day.

What is the current all-around epidemic problem in the government? Can nucleic acid detection qualifications “keep up” with prevention and control needs? How can community prevention and control further achieve “early detection, early reporting, early isolation, and early treatment”? In response to these hot social concerns, the press conference on the joint precluding and control agency of the State Council held on May 13 concentrated on answering.

The overall nationwide epidemic trouble persists to deliver a under trend

Mi Feng, the spokesperson of the National Health and Health Commission, said that in recent days, the number of newly confirmed local cases and asymptomatic infections in my country has continued to decline, but local information has not been completely blocked in some places, and the trouble of epidemic precluding and control is still intense and involved.

Lei Zhenglong, assistant director of the National Health Commission’s Bureau of Disease Control and first-level inspector, said that lately, the overall epidemic situation across the country has persisted to show a under trend. Since May 5, the number of new local diseases in the country has been below 5,000 every day. At present, the epidemic situation in Shanghai is improving as a whole, and the number of recently contaminated people in the city is showing a steady downward trend. The epidemic situation in Jilin Province is in the final stage. The number of newly infected people in Beijing has decreased recently, which shows that the prevention and control measures are targeted and convincing, but there are still reports of infected someones who are not under control, and the risk of society communication has not been completely blocked.

In addition, the epidemic situation in Guang’an, Sichuan is still growing, and it is essential to carry out an investigation and control as soon as possible. The epidemic situation in Henan, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Liaoning, and other locations has gradually stabilized, and measures are still needed to clear it as soon as possible.

Lei Zhenglong said that the current global epidemic is still at a high level, the virus is still evolving, and there is still great suspense in the last order of the epidemic. my country will continue to face huge strain from external guard imports and internal defense rebound. The National Health and Health Commission will unswervingly adhere to the broad policy of “dynamic clemency” and guide all localities to quickly deal with the current clustered epidemics.

Specify a 15-minute hike nucleic acid “sampling circle” in big cities

According to the data of the National New Coronavirus Nucleic Acid Detection Information Platform, as of May 11, 2022, a total of 13,000 medical and health institutions and 153,000 technicians across the nation provided new coronavirus nucleic acid detection services, including a whole detection capability of nearly 57 million tubes per day.

Guo Yanhong, Inspector of the National Health Commission’s Medical Administration and Hospital Administration Bureau, said that after more than two years of active construction, my country’s nucleic acid detection capacities have made great progress. The establishment of nucleic acid “sampling circles” within a 15-minute walk in big cities is valuable for the common people ( 603883 ) to carry escape nucleic acid testing nearby, which is facilitative to the early detection of infection, and further improves the sensitiveness of epidemic monitoring and early notice.

Guo Yanhong introduced that Hangzhou, Shenzhen and other cities are now actively carrying out this work. To expand the team of nucleic acid sampling personnel and meet the sampling needs, various regions are also exploring, and encouraging personnel with professional qualifications in health-related professional and technical occupations and qualified personnel trained by the local health and health administrative department to participate in nucleic acid sampling, not only limited to doctors and nurses; Personnel responsible for auxiliary work such as information entry, order maintenance, and service guarantee can be general staff or volunteers.

Community precluding and control further achieve “four mornings”

The Omicron variant has a fast reach and strong concealment, which brings great challenges to society prevention and control. How can the grassroots further achieve “early detection, early reporting, early isolation, and early treatment”?

Wu Hao, head of the National Health Commission’s Community Prevention and Control Expert Group on the New Coronary Pneumonia Epidemic, and Dean of the School of General Medicine and Continuing Education at Capital Medical University, declared that the sequestration and control areas, authority areas, and precluding areas were divided and different prevention and control measures were taken. It is a precise and effective solution. Because of the new characteristics of the Omicron variant, the relevant departments are further accelerating the time of sealing, management, and control, and at the same time adopting temporary control measures to prevent risk spillage through the strategy of the quick tube and quick screening, and quickly relieve the risk when it is removed.

Wu Hao introduced that according to different local conditions, prevention and control strategies and measures are constantly being optimized, and various regions are using more information technology means, such as the widespread implementation of site codes, electronic fences, and other technologies in public places to improve the efficiency of community prevention and control.
