[Explanation] The Spring Festival is approaching, and the flow of people has increased. Will this situation lead to a resurgence of large-scale epidemics?

On January 22, at the press conference held by the State Council's Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism, Liang Wannian, head of the expert group of the National Health Commission's Leading Group for Epidemic Response and Disposal, responded.

  [Explanation] Liang Wannian said that the increase in personnel flow and aggregation will indeed increase the risk of the spread of the epidemic, but after analysis, as long as the current prevention and control strategies and measures are strictly implemented and personal protection is well done, this risk can be effectively avoided or even controlled.

  For example, vaccinations, wearing masks, washing hands frequently, not gathering as much as possible, etc., we can effectively avoid and even control this risk.

Even if there is an epidemic, we can quickly detect it, quickly delineate risk areas, and quickly deal with it.

Therefore, on the whole, it is unlikely that a large-scale epidemic will return due to the flow and gathering of people during the Spring Festival holiday.

  [Explanation] Despite this, we must not relax. Mao Dezhi, deputy director of the Rural Cooperative Economic Guidance Department and first-level inspector of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, said that during the Spring Festival, we should minimize the number of visits, visits, and dinner parties, especially those who return to their hometowns. Regulations.

  If we farmers have family gatherings during the Spring Festival, or if there is a wedding banquet, we must strictly follow the local epidemic prevention and control requirements, try to reduce the number of people, and avoid large-scale gatherings of people.

  [Explanation] Mi Feng, spokesperson of the National Health and Health Commission and deputy director of the Propaganda Department, pointed out that while doing a good job in epidemic prevention and control, the policies of returning to the hometown should be prevented from being one-size-fits-all, and preventing layers of overweight.

  For people returning home from different risk areas, all localities must accurately implement prevention and control measures by classification and division to prevent simplification and one-size-fits-all policy implementation, and prevent layer-by-layer overweighting.

It is necessary to strengthen emergency duty and efficient operation, and respond quickly and decisively in the event of an outbreak.

  [Explanation] Fu Wei, the supervisory commissioner of the grass-roots department of the National Health and Health Commission, said that the Spring Festival can be used to further increase the vaccination rate in rural areas.

All localities should guide township health centers to enrich the vaccination team, standardize the vaccination process, and improve the vaccination organization method.

  For rural areas, it is mainly carried out by inoculation at temporary centralized vaccination points or vaccination outpatient clinics in township health centers.

For some special groups such as the elderly and disabled people with limited mobility, some places also specially arrange vehicles for transportation, and some places organize special vaccination teams and mobile vaccination vehicles to carry out vaccination services to fully meet the needs of the masses for vaccination.
