Nucleic acid testing is an important means to accurately cut the transmission chain of the virus and stop the spread of the epidemic.On February 16, the reporter learned from the Health Commission of Henan Province that in order to build a solid epidemic prevention barrier, the province should accelerate the construction of nucleic acid testing capacity. By the end of March, the nucleic acid testing capacity of Zhengzhou city should reach 1.2 million tubes per day, and the provincial cities with a population of more than 8 million should reach 500,000 tubes per day.Since last year, in response to three rounds of rebound of the epidemic, The province has carried out nucleic acid testing in key areas and all staff, racing against time to trace the source of the epidemic, quickly identifying those at risk, accurately delineating the containment, control and control circle, and concentrating high-quality medical resources to treat patients. By the end of July last year, the epidemic has been brought under control in two latent periods.In early November and January this year, the epidemic was brought under control within one incubation period, and the authorities were determined to contain and suppress the epidemic.More than 80,000 medical workers worked through the night to carry out nucleic acid tests on 244 million people and carry out more than 50,000 on-site inspections, providing a reliable guarantee for the rapid control of the epidemic.Under the new situation of epidemic prevention and control, in order to build a solid epidemic prevention barrier, the next step is to accelerate the construction of nucleic acid testing capacity. By the end of March, 500,000 tubes of nucleic acid testing should be carried out daily in the provincial cities with a population of more than 8 million, 300,000 tubes in cities with a population of 5 million to 8 million, 200,000 tubes in cities with a population of less than 5 million, and 1.2 million tubes in Zhengzhou.240 ~ 320 testing personnel should be equipped for every 100,000 tube testing capacity, and laboratory testing personnel should be equipped and trained synchronously.At the same time, the province should speed up the construction of the ability to trace the source of flow adjustment. The provincial cities with a population of more than 8 million should establish 300 branch adjustment teams, 200 for those with a population of 5 million to 8 million, and 150 for those with a population of less than 5 million. They should be registered and recorded and be on regular duty.In addition, the province should speed up the construction of isolation control capacity. According to the standard of 20 rooms per 10,000 people, 10,000 to 20,000 centralized isolation rooms should be renovated and reserved in each provincial city.Local governments should step up efforts to improve their medical treatment capacity, complete standardized construction of designated hospitals for treatment within this year, prepare adequate equipment and supplies, and form echelon of medical workers, so that they are ready to treat and treat patients within six hours of the outbreak.(Wang Hong, Zhengguan News Reporter)
