  The practice of epidemic prevention and control for more than two years has proved that the "dynamic clearing" method of discovering and extinguishing together has protected the lives and health of the people to the greatest extent, and minimized the impact of the epidemic on the overall economic and social development of the country. The way is right, the effect is good, and it is the "magic weapon" for China to prevent and control the epidemic.

  my country is a country with a large population, the regional development is unbalanced, the medical resources are generally insufficient, and the allocation of resources is also unbalanced.

The vaccination rate of "one old and one young" is generally not high enough. In the face of the repeated impact of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, if the so-called "lying flat" strategy of coexisting with the virus is adopted, medical and health resources will face a serious risk of running on, and a large number of The health of people with underlying diseases, the elderly, children, and pregnant women will be threatened.

At the same time, it will also have a serious impact on economic and social development.

  First of all, the relationship between the part and the whole, the short-term and the long-term relationship should be clearly defined, and its costs and benefits should be viewed from a long-term, comprehensive, overall, and systemic point of view.

When evaluating the costs and benefits of a fight against the epidemic, it is not just economic or monetary costs and benefits.

Because life is priceless, life cannot be measured in money.

Therefore, when doing analysis, it should be a systematic point of view. It is necessary to calculate the large account, the overall account, and the dynamic (calculation) account, not only the economic account, but also the people's livelihood account.

  [Explanation] Li Bin said that at present, China has entered the fourth stage of "scientific and accurate, dynamic clearing" of all-round comprehensive prevention and control.

  In view of the characteristics of strong infectivity, fast transmission speed, high proportion of asymptomatic infections, and strong occult transmission of Omicron variant strains, we summarize the prevention and control experience in various places and continuously improve various prevention and control measures.

In terms of prevention and control measures, clarify the main direction of attack, clarify the priority of prevention and control measures, and exchange space for time, placing community prevention and control in an important position.

No matter how the situation of the epidemic changes, we will adhere to the philosophy of putting people first and life first, and do a good job in preventing and controlling the epidemic as always.
