Jin Zhengen said that the prospect of reducing the risk of Xinguan epidemic is still uncertain. The front line of epidemic prevention must keep a high degree of vigilance, re inspect and further strictly implement the epidemic prevention work. It will lead to an unimaginable and irreparable fatal crisis if the preventive measures are lifted lightly.
The meeting also discussed the human resources, materials and technology for accelerating the construction of the general hospital in Pyongyang and taking measures to guarantee medical services. After the outbreak of Xinguan epidemic, North Korea was one of the first countries to take strict management measures. It has been about six months since the health and epidemic prevention system was transformed into a “national emergency health and epidemic prevention system”. According to North Korean officials, so far no cases of infection have been found in North Korea.
