  First, in terms of total passenger flow, a total of 1.06 billion passengers were sent across the country in the 40 days of the Spring Festival, with an average of 26.5 million passengers per day, a year-on-year increase of 21.8% compared with 2021, and only 35.6% of the normal year before the epidemic (2019).

  Zhou Min also said about the Spring Festival travel service and the effectiveness of epidemic prevention and control.

Judging from the actual situation, all relevant departments in various regions adhere to the principle of "preventing import from outside, and preventing rebound from inside", refine and implement the requirements for epidemic prevention and control, strengthen epidemic prevention and control in all aspects of transportation such as entering stations, waiting for trains, and traveling by car, and strictly implement disinfection and ventilation. Measures such as temperature measurement and code scanning, and control of passenger occupancy rate have prevented the spread of the epidemic through passenger terminals and transportation vehicles, achieving the established goal of not spreading the epidemic due to the Spring Festival.
