The Changsha COVID-19 Prevention and Control Command Center held a meeting on October 20 morning to make arrangements for the city’s epidemic prevention and control work. Zheng Jianxin, deputy secretary of the CPC Changsha Municipal Committee, mayor of Changsha, and secretary of the CPC Working Committee of the Hunan Xiangjiang New Area, attended.

He stressed that the whole city should attach great importance to the epidemic prevention and control work and remain highly vigilant and sensitive to the epidemic, and conscientiously implement the latest arrangements and requirements of the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee, the Hunan Provincial People’s Government, and the CPC Changsha Municipal Committee. He called for targeted and efficient efforts to prevent and control the epidemic. The risks caused by imported cases should be promptly handled and controlled in place. All these will help the city secure a victory in the battle against the epidemic, and ensure normal production and life across the city.

Mayor Zheng Jianxin noted that, as Changsha is in a critical period of “preventing epidemic spread, cluster infections, and community transmission”, the whole city should act quickly and decisively to implement various epidemic prevention and control measures. In response to the imported case in Changsha County, the screening and control of close contacts and sub-close contacts should be carried out, to ensure that all of them are properly separated. Measures such as lockdown and disinfection should be fully implemented for epidemic-related sites. Nucleic acid testing should be conducted for all personnel in key regions and industries. All levels of departments in the city should further do a good job in epidemiological investigation and screening in accordance with the unified requirements, and be prepared for emergencies at any time, to ensure swift actions and rapid control of the epidemic once it escalates.
