Wang Bin pointed out that the National Health Commission has further carried out personnel training to prepare personnel, equipment, beds, materials and other aspects to respond to the epidemic in autumn and winter, and improve the ability of all aspects of epidemic response.
The National Health Commission will also work with relevant departments to supervise and guide localities to tighten the string of epidemic prevention and control, further improve the command system for epidemic prevention and control, and do not slack in the work of external defense input and internal defense rebound.

These work measures are a key link in the prevention and control of the autumn and winter epidemics, and at the same time accelerate the construction of nucleic acid detection capabilities.
In addition, various places are currently strengthening plan drills, material reserves and professional training. The National Health Commission requires all localities to carry out large-scale investigations, large-scale training, and large-scale drills to improve the level and ability of emergency response, so as to be prepared.
