The meeting emphasized that the epidemic prevention and control situation this winter and next spring is still severe and complicated, and the tasks are arduous and onerous. The Party Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to it. The cadres and employees of the whole system must earnestly study and understand the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important instructions, resolutely overcome paralysis, war exhaustion, fluke psychology, and relaxation mentality, and strictly implement the measures of "external defense input and internal defense rebound".

One is to strengthen epidemic surveillance and information reporting. Appropriately expand the scope of nucleic acid testing for "exhaustive examinations", increase the frequency of regular tests, and do a good job in the investigation, reporting and referral of fever cases. When an epidemic is discovered, it must be reported based on facts and strictly in accordance with laws and regulations.
The second is to strengthen "people and things" to defend against external input. For air port entry personnel, strengthen professional and technical training for isolation service personnel, strictly regulate the provision of services, and strengthen closed-loop management and control of transportation and home observation. For land ports, strengthen the investigation and control of illegal immigrants, and strengthen personal protection measures for high-risk groups.
The third is to strengthen prevention and control of hospital awareness. Party and government responsible comrades in medical institutions should personally grasp and improve the prevention and control mechanism, special personnel and special classes, and regular inspections. Re-evaluate the existing designated hospitals and fever clinics. Those that do not meet the requirements must be resolutely cancelled or remodeled as soon as possible, equipped with adequate equipment and personnel, and strict closed-loop management requirements for fever patients. Establish personnel and equipment support mechanisms for large general hospitals.
The fourth is to strengthen emergency response to clustered epidemics. Strictly implement 5 key measures to deal with clustered epidemics.
At the same time, medical institutions do a good job of performing nucleic acid testing for “due to all inspections” such as routine outpatient (emergency) visits and hospitalizations, and give full play to the role of third-party nucleic acid testing agencies to ensure timely feedback of test results. Improve the emergency response mechanism of “territorial treatment, regional cooperation, and efficient linkage”, organize practical drills, and strengthen training in disease control, medical treatment, testing, and flow adjustment. Attach great importance to and strengthen the flow reconciliation and traceability work. The fifth is to strengthen epidemic prevention and control around the Spring Festival holiday. Adhere to the effective prevention and control measures during the Spring Festival last year and the "May 1st" and "National Day" holidays this year to reduce the flow of people, reduce the risk of travel, reduce the gathering of people, and strengthen personal protection.
