2020/07/14

On the afternoon of 13 July, the Beijing Leading Group on COVID-19 Response held its 76th meeting and the 35th meeting of the municipal inter-agency mechanism for entry management.

The meeting noted the steady improvement in Beijing's COVID-19 situation but cautioned that the city must remain soberly aware of the uncertainties, as short-term progress does not mean a complete success. It is not yet time to claim victory. Any lowering of guard may lead to a resurgence of cases.

The meeting underscored the need to ensure strict compliance with the requirement of early detection, reporting, quarantine and treatment, and implement all containment measures. There is no room for complacency, battle fatigue or slackening, and more needs to be done to consolidate and expand containment progress. The meeting also called for efforts to boost the reopening of the economy and achieve full normalcy in life and work at a faster pace.

The meeting urged the following efforts:

l Make thorough arrangements for the people related to the Xinfadi Wholesale Market who are released from medical observation at designated facilities, and work with their communities and villages to ensure follow-up health monitoring;

l Step up epidemiological investigation of cases with unknown sources to detect and avoid potential risks;

l Enhance the capacity for early detection and raise the alertness of medical workers to suspected cases to minimize the risk of in-hospital transmission;

l Make every effort to treat patients, enhance management of asymptomatic cases and provide care and support to cured patients;

l Boost the resumption of production and business, and develop protocols and mechanisms for the reopening of venues previously exposed to the virus; and

l Ensure implementation of containment measures in public places, including cap on daily visits, advance booking, staggered admission, disinfection and ventilation, body temperature screening and verification of Beijing Health Kit Code.
