China News Service, August 10. The State Council's joint prevention and control mechanism held a press conference on the recent epidemic prevention and control work on the 10th.

At the meeting, Guo Yanhong, the supervisory commissioner of the Medical Administration and Hospital Administration Bureau of the National Health and Health Commission, said that in the process of responding to the epidemic, the National Health and Health Commission quickly coordinated the national medical force and nucleic acid testing resources, and increased support for Hainan. 19 provinces across the country dispatched more than 10,000 medical and health personnel to support Hainan.

  Guo Yanhong pointed out that the Omicron variant spreads quickly and is hidden, and it is easy to cause a large-scale clustered epidemic in a short period of time.

The Hainan epidemic has been spreading covertly for a period of time when it was discovered. Therefore, the prevention and control situation is severe and complicated, and the current epidemic is in a period of rapid progress.

  Guo Yanhong said that in order to control the epidemic as soon as possible, the national level has increased its support for Hainan.

The first is to strengthen the guidance of epidemic prevention and control.

On August 4, the comprehensive group of the Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council sent a working group to Hainan for guidance. On August 7, another 10 working groups were sent to be stationed in cities and counties where the epidemic occurred to support the epidemic prevention and control work in Hainan. The team went to the grassroots and the front line, went deep into key areas, strengthened on-site research, guidance, supervision and inspection, and implemented various epidemic prevention and control measures.

  The second is to increase support for medical resources in Hainan Province.

Hainan's medical resources are relatively weak, with 6.02 beds per 1,000 population and 2.91 licensed doctors per 1,000 population, all lower than the national average.

Therefore, in the process of responding to the epidemic, we quickly coordinated the national medical force and nucleic acid testing resources, increased support for Hainan, and dispatched more than 10,000 medical and health personnel from 19 provinces across the country to support Hainan.

  In terms of nucleic acid testing, nearly 8,000 testing personnel, sampling personnel and related testing equipment have been dispatched to increase the nucleic acid testing capacity of Hainan Province to 2.4 million tubes per day. These nucleic acid testing forces are deployed in Sanya, Haikou and The 18 cities and counties with the epidemic situation have helped Hainan Province to rapidly improve its nucleic acid testing capabilities, and also provided support for large-scale nucleic acid testing.

  In terms of medical treatment, a total of more than 2,000 medical personnel have been dispatched, and 2 national emergency medical rescue teams have been organized to take over all the treatment tasks of the Fangcang shelter hospital that treats patients in Hainan to achieve classified treatment.

In Hainan, a national-level medical treatment expert was specially dispatched to guide the clinical treatment work in Hainan.

At the same time, by dispatching a large number of medical forces to help Hainan complete the treatment of new crown patients, it can also minimize the impact on the normal medical resources of Hainan Province and ensure the people's daily medical service needs.

In addition, nearly 300 teams of mediation and supervision were dispatched to support the prevention and control of the epidemic.

  The third is to improve the efficiency of epidemic handling and achieve the "four responses", that is, all inspections should be conducted, all quarantined should be isolated, all received should be collected, and all should be treated.

In terms of organizational management, Hainan is instructed to strengthen the overall planning and scheduling of resources and information in the whole province. In the key link, first, it is necessary to ensure the efficiency and quality of nucleic acid testing, and to detect socially positive infected persons as quickly as possible. , so as to "check everything that should be checked".

Second, the "Three Publics (Workers)" work together to quickly carry out flow investigations, quickly identify areas and people with high risk, and take relevant control measures to cut off the chain of transmission.

Third, strengthen transfer isolation, quickly isolate close contacts, manage sub-close contacts, and do our best to reduce social spread, so as to "separate as much as possible."

Fourth, strengthen medical treatment, implement classified treatment for positive infections, coordinate medical resources across the province, and ensure that there are sufficient beds in Fangcang shelter hospitals and designated hospitals, so as to "acquire all that is due".

At the same time, carry out standardized diagnosis and treatment, ensure the homogeneity and standardization of treatment, strive to improve the effect of treatment, and ensure "the treatment that should be treated".

Fifth, it is necessary to strengthen social management, scientifically delineate medium and high-risk areas, strictly implement community prevention and control measures, cut off transmission routes, and control the epidemic as soon as possible.
