2020/04/14

On 13 April, Li Keqiang, Member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, Premier of the State Council, and head of the Central Leading Group on Responding to the Novel Coronavirus Disease Outbreak, chaired a meeting of the leading group.

The meeting underlined the imperative to earnestly implement the important instructions made by General Secretary Xi Jinping and carry out the work plans of the leading group to continue delivering all control measures in a solid and meticulous manner.

The meeting called for adjusting and adapting targeted control measures against the import of infections to make them more effective. It urged better-focused response efforts and properly handling all situations in accordance with standard protocols. The potential risks of a resurgence of infection should be detected and defused in order to foster enabling conditions for full restoration of economic activities.

The meeting required more effective curbing of cross-border spread of infections with targeted and effective measures on focal areas. It called for continued efforts to tighten outbreak control at points of entry, minimize non-essential population movements across borders, and coordinate point-of-entry management, inspection and quarantine, enclosed patient transport, and isolation and treatment.

Medical and containment task forces from inland areas will be sent to the front-line border provinces under a risk-based approach, to provide assistance and guidance on containing infections, installing mobile hospitals, setting up quarantine stations and specialized medical facilities, and treating patients.

Testing reagents and facilities, therapeutic and treatment equipment as well as other medical supplies will be channeled to the border regions and point-of-entry cities to bolster their containment and treatment capacity.

The meeting called for enhancing international cooperation on epidemic control. It required tightening quality control over the exports of medical and containment supplies. Any unlicensed or below-standard production activities will be dealt with and price-hiking of anti-epidemic goods and raw materials punished according to law.
