Strictly prevent a major epidemic after a major disaster

  After Henan encountered large-scale heavy rainfall, after many days of fighting, the land of the Central Plains gradually recovered.

At present, the flood prevention and disaster relief in Zhengzhou and other places has entered a new stage of restoration and reconstruction and assistance to the disaster-stricken people.

The National Health Commission has sent a working group to Henan to support and guide the flood disaster health emergency work. The Zhengzhou Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters has established a post-disaster disinfection, disinfection and epidemic prevention work team to comprehensively promote the post-disaster epidemic prevention and elimination work, and resolutely prevent Epidemic".

  After torrential rains, floods, earthquakes and other major natural disasters, epidemics of various infectious diseases are prone to appear.

Historically, floods have caused pandemics such as cholera, typhoid fever, dysentery, and hepatitis A and E.

For example, after the flood recedes, the silt and rubbish washed out by the rainstorm are scattered on the streets, bridges and culverts, and in the community, which contains a large number of pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites.

According to media reports, Zhengzhou’s urban area currently produces about 9,500 tons of live garbage per day, an increase of more than 2,000 tons compared to before the rainstorm. Water sources and food are easily polluted. In the harsh environment of lack of water and electricity, human immunity is reduced, and diarrhea is more likely to occur. Intestinal diseases; after the habitat is submerged, the distribution and number of some host animals change, and some animal-borne infectious diseases may be transmitted to humans, etc.

These may lead to the outbreak of certain infectious diseases after the disaster.

Only by carrying out health and epidemic prevention work in a timely manner can the risk of epidemic epidemics after the disaster be reduced.

  At the same time, the prevention and control of the new crown pneumonia epidemic must not be relaxed in the flood prevention and disaster relief and recovery and reconstruction phases.

At present, the domestic epidemic situation is reappearing.

The number of the epidemic in Nanjing continues to rise, and at least 10 cities in 7 provinces have been involved.

A large-scale performance in Zhangjiajie, Hunan, continued to extend the communication chain.

According to reports, the virus strain of this epidemic is a Delta strain, which has the characteristics of fast spreading, high viral load, short onset time, long treatment time, and strong occultity. We need to be more vigilant.

Especially during the flood prevention and disaster relief period, the sanitation environment is relatively poor, and the crowds are easy to gather together. It is necessary to coordinate the flood prevention and relief and epidemic prevention and control work, strengthen the inspection and control of personnel entering the disaster area in high-risk areas, timely guarantee the supply of epidemic prevention supplies, and implement the measures It must be more detailed and rigorous, and do everything possible to ensure the safety of people's lives and property.

  To prevent a major epidemic after a major disaster, everyone participates and everyone is responsible.

The local government and relevant departments should strengthen publicity and education, conduct a full-scale investigation of epidemic areas, epidemic spots, and vector breeding sites, highlight key locations, highlight affected rural areas, and highlight epidemic spots in special epidemic areas, and implement garbage (debris) and pollution removal. (Sludge), disinfection and elimination of "two cleansing and one elimination" work, so that there are no dead ends in all directions.

Individuals must take good health protection, start with small things, pay attention to eating, drinking, maintain personal hygiene, wear masks in and out of public places, and go to a regular medical institution in time for medical treatment if they feel unwell.

In the face of the health threats brought by floods, the government organized, prevented and controlled and rescued the patients in a timely manner. Medical staff treated patients in a timely manner. Everyone did individual prevention. If everyone worked together, they would be able to protect life and health and rebuild a beautiful home as soon as possible.
