The epidemic situation at home is basically under control with no high and middle risk regions. But the coronavirus pandemic abroad hasn’t been effectively contained. The risk of potential imported cases poses long-term threat to China. After studying the situation, experts estimate that there would be higher risk of epidemic outbreak in autumn and winter at home. As autumn and winter are high season for various respiratory diseases, China will face more complex situation and difficult prevention and control challenges. Everyone should keep in mind the normalization of prevention efforts, stay alert, and follow strict prevention measures. It’s highly recommended for people to clean and cook thoroughly of imported food as required before eating. Please properly arrange travel itinerary and cut unnecessary gatherings. Please go to fever clinics of local designated medical institutions in a timely manner once acute respiratory symptoms including fever and cough occur. Medical institutions at all levels should take regular unremitting prevention efforts, including fever clinics management, pre-examination and separation of patients with infectious diseases, and protective measures for medical staff. Special attention should be paid to those working in large wholesale wet markets, food processing factories, meat and seafood markets. Special care should be given recently to faculties and students returning to school. High priority should be given to reports on epidemic related information, disinfection in key links and major venues of mass gatherings, confined space, and poor sanitary conditions.
