"This new crown pneumonia epidemic is a major public health emergency with the fastest spread, the widest range of infections, and the most difficult prevention and control in China since the founding of New China."
Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, president of the CPC Central Committee, and chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the above remarks at the conference on coordinating the advancement of new crown pneumonia epidemic prevention and control and economic and social development. In the most strenuous phase of epidemic prevention and control, the senior officials of the central government have held two meetings on coordinating epidemic prevention and control and economic and social development within three days. Interviewed experts believe that in the face of key "epidemics", the word "precision" runs through from epidemic prevention to coordinating economic and social development to employment.
"Do Not Relax": Precise Epidemic Prevention Strategy
"We will continue to relax and pay close attention to all kinds of prevention and control work, and we will never speak lightly of success without a complete victory." Xi Jinping stressed at the meeting that day. It is observed that from the "full mobilization" at the beginning of the epidemic to the current stage, "no relaxation" is mentioned, and the change in the formulation reflects the precise focus on the time dimension of the epidemic prevention strategy.
"With the length of the epidemic, individual people tend to accumulate tiredness. Once the positive situation of the epidemic prevention and control appears positive, there may be slackness and deviation." Chang Jian, a professor at Zhou Enlai School of Government Management, Nankai University, pointed out that Xi Jinping The emphasis on "high vigilance over paralysis, war exhaustion, fluke, and relaxation" is to "re-mobilize the battlefield" for the prevention and control of the epidemic in the country, and we must overcome the epidemic with one's energy. Once we relax, we may lose everything.
In addition to the different emphasis on epidemic prevention in the time dimension, Xi Jinping also detailed and refined the epidemic prevention strategy from the spatial dimension.
Aiming at the Hubei region, Xi Jinping proposed to tightly control the two keys of urban and rural community prevention and control and patient treatment, and resolutely curb the spread of the epidemic. With regard to the deployment of Beijing's epidemic prevention work, Xi Jinping emphasized that we must resolutely grasp the two major links of external defense import and internal non-proliferation, strengthen joint prevention and control in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, and cut off the source of infection as much as possible.
"Besides Hubei, it is worth paying attention to Beijing alone." Xue Lan, a professor at the School of Public Management at Tsinghua University, said, "Beijing, as the capital, has close contacts with all parts of the country, and may become a high-risk area for the outbreak. Without effective control, it will not only have a huge impact on the economy and society, but also cause great damage to international exchanges and the image of the country. "
"Resumption of Work and Resumption": The Art of Precision Planning
The outside world has noticed that since the Political Bureau meeting of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on February 21, the central policy-makers have held two meetings within three days to coordinate the prevention and control of the epidemic and the economic and social development. After combing, it has been found that since the beginning of February, how to accurately "coordinate" between epidemic prevention and economic development has been running through the central high-level meetings.
On February 3, the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee proposed that areas with severe epidemics should focus their efforts on epidemic prevention and control, and other areas should coordinate their reform, development, and stability while doing a good job of prevention and control. Nine days later, the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China held a meeting again stating that the key areas for non-epidemic prevention and control should take the implementation of zoning and precision control as the starting point to coordinate the prevention and control of the epidemic and the restoration of economic and social order.
At the meeting on the 23rd, Xi Jinping put forward a number of requirements for the orderly return to work and production. Observations suggest that from the low-, medium-, and high-risk areas of hierarchical deployment to the strengthening of macro-policy adjustments, from the macro to the micro are reflected in the precise coordination between epidemic prevention and economic development.
Dai Yanjun, a professor at the Central Party School (National School of Administration), pointed out that in the situation where the epidemic has already had a large impact on the economy and society, it is particularly necessary to dialectically and accurately maintain the balance between preventing and controlling the epidemic and restoring production. It cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach, but it is necessary to implement different strategies according to different situations.
"The conference was held in the form of a video conference and a sub-meeting. The purpose is to carry out the spirit of the Politburo meeting and require precise coordination of the relationship between epidemic prevention and economic development." Chang Jian said, "Some regions are currently returning to work. There may be resistance in the resumption of production, so it is necessary to mobilize at the national level, such as opening up the flow of people, blocking logistics, and lifting restrictions on freight logistics. "
"Up and Down": Precise Employment
Xi Jinping pointed out at the meeting that it is necessary to inspect and identify cadres on the front line of struggle, to give commendation and bold use to outstanding performance cadres, to be seriously accountable to those who do not perform inaction and dereliction of duty, and to the advanced collectives and outstanding Individuals should be commended and rewarded according to the situation.
In this epidemic, officials around the world formed a precise employment ruler between "up and down". A group of outstanding officials have been promoted by the "FireWire". For example, Luo Hao, a civil servant in Hubei who is most afraid of losing time due to taking off protective clothing and going to the toilet, has been promoted to be a member of the local town party committee. Zhang Ying, a Tianjin disease control expert who explained the virus's "spreading chain" by taking a silkworm and cocoon, was recently promoted to deputy director of the Tianjin Centers for Disease Control. At the same time, a group of officials who flinched, concealed the epidemic, and slandered officials were seriously held accountable and even removed from office.
Dai Yanjun said that the epidemic tested the cadres' sense of responsibility, sense of responsibility, and ability to work. "Being able to go up and down" made the scientific and precise line of cadres always advocated, and further demonstrated that "the rewards and punishments are clear."
"The CCP cadre selection system itself is to select good and capable cadres. The epidemic is a crisis and a big test." Chang Jian pointed out, "From the perspective of cadre organization, cadres with insufficient responsibilities and capabilities will be exposed. This is an opportunity to turn hazards into opportunities and select good cadres. "(End)
