The State Council Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism Conference: Recently, the situation of multi-point distribution of local epidemics and frequent prevention and control in many places is severe

Cctv newsOn July 23rd, the State Council Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism held a press conference on the safety and effectiveness of vaccines in Covid-19. According to the report of the World Health Organization, the newly confirmed cases in the western Pacific where China is located increased by 37% last week, which is the fastest growing region in the world. Omicron’s BA.5 sub-branch has spread to more than 100 countries and regions around the world, resulting in an increase in the number of infections, hospitalizations and severe cases, and the pressure on China’s foreign countries to prevent imports is increasing.

Recently, the local epidemic situation has shown a trend of multi-point distribution and frequent occurrence. In some areas, the epidemic spillover has not been completely blocked, and the prevention and control situation is severe and complicated.

We must unswervingly adhere to the general strategy of "external defense input, internal defense rebound" and the general policy of "dynamic clearing". The areas where the epidemic occurred should deal with the clustered epidemic according to the local situation, concentrate resources and strength to quickly put it out, and quickly curb the spread of the local epidemic; Border areas and entry cities should strictly implement various measures for external defense input, strictly manage in a closed loop, and resolutely avoid the destruction of defense and the overflow of epidemic situation; Areas where no epidemic has occurred should continue to do a good job in normalization prevention and control, and maintain the efficient operation of the emergency response command system.

Covid-19 vaccination should be continued.
