In the previous stage of epidemic prevention and control, various localities and departments worked together and adopted a series of effective measures, the statement said.
However, as the epidemic is still spreading, the situation remains very severe and complex, making it a very critical period for the prevention and control of the epidemic and the upcoming travel rush caused by the migrant workers and resumption of work will pose great challenges to epidemic prevention and control, according to the statement.
We must take the initiative in prevention and control, implement various measures, strictly prevent imported cases from outside of the province and spread within the province so as to block the source of infection, the statement said.
Measures should be taken to strengthen prevention and control measures to help curb the spread of the novel coronavirus during the return journey of the Spring Festival travel rush, register all close contacts and those from key areas with high incidence of the epidemic, make medical observations of people from the infected areas and isolate suspected patients and close contacts, according to the statement.
Law enforcement agencies should make a criminal case for those who spread the epidemic intentionally although they are aware that they have been infected, the statement said.
More efforts should be made to better communicate authoritative information about the pneumonia situation caused by the novel coronavirus and explain the policies and measures taken to control the outbreak, according to the statement.
Intensified efforts are urged in distributing authoritative and targeted information to respond to public concerns in a timely manner, as well as promoting knowledge on the prevention and control of the epidemic, said the statement.
Improved management of cultural and tourism activities is called for to cut off the spreading of the epidemic on such occasions, the statement said.
The meeting also called for greater efforts to speed up the manufacturing and secure the coordinated supply of key medical products to help curb the epidemic caused by the novel coronavirus.
Donated materials must be open, transparent, and searchable, and deployed in a timely manner, the statement said.
Methods should be taken to meet the needs of the people, strengthen material reserves, ensure the supply of vegetables, meat, eggs, milk, food and other essential necessities, keep the necessary service places such as farmers' markets, supermarkets, etc. open in accordance with regulations, resolutely crack down on behaviors such as price gouging and hoarding so as to maintain the market order and expected stability, said the statement.
