The meeting pointed out that in February 3rd, general secretary Xi Jinping chaired the Standing Committee meeting of the Central Political Bureau and made an important speech on strengthening the prevention and control of epidemic situation. Party committees and governments at all levels should integrate their thoughts and actions into the spirit of general secretary Xi Jinpings important speech and Standing Committee of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, and take the epidemic prevention and control work as the most important work at present. We must do a solid job in carrying out the work of the epidemic prevention. We must resolutely curb the epidemic trend and resolutely fight the epidemic prevention and control.

The meeting pointed out that Hubei Province, especially Wuhan City, is still the top priority of national epidemic prevention and control. We should put peoples life safety and physical health first, strive to improve the treatment rate and cure rate, and reduce the infection rate and fatality rate. We will further expand the supply of beds, expropriate a number of hotels, venues, training centers, etc. for centralized treatment of suspected cases, light patients or close contacts, and transform some tertiary general hospitals into designated hospitals. We will mobilize a number of emergency shelter hospitals and an additional 2000 Medical and nursing personnel to support Hubei, which will be in place tonight. We will focus on our strengths, dispatch high-level medical teams to restructure and take over the critical care hospital or ward, and provide rescue equipment and protective materials. We will expand primary medical services. Reasonably arrange the rotation of medical staff to ensure their health. Improve the ability of detection and diagnosis, shorten the detection time, dispatch detection forces from the national disease control system to support Wuhan, and allow qualified third-party detection agencies to carry out nucleic acid detection. Optimize the diagnosis and treatment plan, incorporate the clinical effective treatment measures into the diagnosis and treatment specifications, strengthen the integration of traditional Chinese and Western medicine, and improve the effectiveness of clinical treatment.

The meeting pointed out that medical treatment and protection resources should be firmly focused on the front line of fighting the epidemic, while ensuring the supply of necessities. We will strengthen overall planning and coordination, consolidate local responsibilities, accelerate the return to work of medical protective clothing, masks and other enterprises, maximize production potential, and expand production capacity in various ways. If the imported medical materials meet the relevant standards, they should be put into use as soon as possible. We will promote the classified use of key medical prevention and control materials. We will ensure the normal supply of daily necessities everywhere. Coordinate key enterprises, especially central enterprises, to increase the production of necessities. Ensure the smooth traffic network, open some blocked roads as soon as possible, solve the problems encountered in cross regional transportation in time, improve the efficiency of material distribution, and ensure the market supply.

The meeting requested that the joint defense and joint control mechanism of the State Council should improve the precise docking mechanism of supply and demand of medical resources, further coordinate the daily scheduling of key medical control materials according to the needs of epidemic prevention and control in all regions, especially in Hubei Province, and all departments should perform their duties, take the initiative and cooperate with each other. Strengthen the traffic peak shift scheduling, and avoid a large number of centralized trips for people returning after the festival. Under the firm leadership of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core, we must firmly strengthen confidence, work together in the same boat, scientifically prevent and control, and accurately implement policies, and resolutely win the battle against epidemic prevention and control.
