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.
