  The Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council held a press conference on the 26th to introduce the situation of epidemic prevention and control and vaccination.

A reporter asked at the meeting: Recently, local clusters of epidemics have occurred in more than a dozen provinces across the country. Some are Delta strains, and some are Omicron strains. What is the recent national epidemic situation?

  In this regard, Wu Liangyou said that recently, the domestic epidemic has shown the characteristics of many points, wide areas, and frequent occurrences, and the superimposed epidemic of Delta and Omicron variants.

From the perspective of the epidemic situation in various places, the infected persons detected recently in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanxi, Shanghai, Shandong, Xiamen, Fujian, and Jixi, Heilongjiang are all quarantine control or closed-loop management personnel, and the risk of further spread of the epidemic is low.

  Recently, the newly infected people in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province are mainly from the controlled population. The epidemic situation is on a downward trend as a whole, and the risk of community transmission is gradually decreasing. The local area is continuing to strengthen the management of closed and controlled areas.

The number of cases in Huludao, Liaoning Province has increased recently. This continuous tailing situation requires vigilance against the rebound and further spread of the epidemic.

  The infected people in Heihe, Heilongjiang, and Honghe, Yunnan are all concentrated in the local area, and there are different transmission chains. The source of infection is still under investigation, and the epidemic has the risk of spreading.

The recent new cases of the epidemic in Lincang, Yunnan were concentrated in a local middle school. It is necessary to transfer and isolate all teachers and students as soon as possible, and speed up the nucleic acid screening in key areas to prevent the further spread of the epidemic in the campus and community.

  Shenzhen, Guangdong has a wide range of epidemic sites, complicated transmission chains, and a high risk of community transmission and spillover. The newly infected people in Dongguan are mainly distributed in an industrial park. The population density in this area is relatively high, and relevant cities in Guangdong are strengthening risk personnel. Check and control, speed up the push of assisted investigation information, and prevent the further spread of the epidemic.

  There is a risk of further spread of the epidemic in Chengdu, Sichuan and Fangchenggang, Guangxi. The local area is speeding up the investigation and control of risk personnel to prevent the spread of the epidemic.

The epidemic in Wuhan, Hubei has spread to Beijing, Shandong, Hebei, Shanghai and other provinces (cities), and all localities are stepping up efforts to track and control risk personnel, speed up the investigation of spillover personnel, and prevent the further spread of the epidemic.

  The epidemic situation in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia is still at a high plateau, but the risk of community transmission has decreased. The local area is making every effort to strengthen the management of key areas such as community screening cases and closed control areas, and further implement various prevention and control measures.

  Wu Liangyou also said that from the perspective of China's epidemic prevention and control experience, the current prevention and control measures are effective in dealing with the Omicron variant. The key lies in the implementation of the "four early principles" and the compaction of "four parties' responsibilities".

The National Health and Health Commission will guide the areas where the epidemic is occurring, speed up the organization of nucleic acid screening in key areas, strengthen the flow investigation and investigation, timely regulate the isolation and control of risk personnel, and implement various prevention and control measures to ensure the overall stability of the epidemic situation.
