Health and family planning departments in provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the central government, Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, and the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention:

Recently, hand-foot-mouth disease (HFMD) cases saw a significant increase. Cholera and dengue can easily run wild during the spring and summer, and there are still risks of malaria and Ebola hemorrhagic fever reaching the country from abroad. Prevention and control work faces grim prospects. In order to further strengthen the focus on prevention and control of infectious diseases in spring and summer and to protect public health, the following are required:

1. Pay attention to the prevention and control of infectious diseases in spring and summer

Health and family planning administrative departments at all levels should keep public health in mind; focus on prevention and control of infectious diseases in spring and summer; be aware of the overall situation, responsibilities and risks; study and predict regional infectious disease development; formulate practical prevention and control plans; and make early deployments. Administrative departments should follow local government guidance, enhance internal communication and coordination, improve inter-departmental information sharing and the joint prevention and control mechanism, work with quality inspection and commercial departments to manage infectious diseases among migrant workers, assist education departments in preventing and controlling infectious diseases at schools and kindergartens, and urge agricultural departments to nip the source of anthropozoonosis in the bud.

2. Enhance monitoring and epidemic treatment

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) at alllevels should improve the data quality of the statuary infectious diseases reporting network; enhance epidemic information collection, analysis and utilization; and strengthen supervision of key border and rural areas, educational facilities and migrant population gathering places. CDC in border areas should pay close attention to the development of major epidemic situations in neighboring countries, enhance active surveillance on dengue and malaria, and make timely evaluation on importing risks. Once infectious diseases break out, CDC at all levels should immediately carry out investigation work, collect laboratory samples, properly take care of close contacts with major infectious diseases (such as cholera), and effectively conduct disinfection treatment in epidemic spots and zones. The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention should make regular epidemic analysis, strengthen technical guidance and support to major provinces, and prepare for disease outbreak site disposal.
