Korean Central News Agency of DPRK

Pyongyang, July 27 (KCNA) -- Integrated guidance is provided in the DPRK to correctly grasp the overall state anti-epidemic work and ensure the execution of the updated anti-epidemic policies.

The state emergency anti-epidemic headquarters is intensifying the work to technically complete the Korean-style anti-epidemic system and accelerate the development of the anti-epidemic capacity.

The National Hygienic and Anti-epidemic Center and central hospitals immediately dispatch their high-speed mobile anti-epidemic teams and diagnosis consultative teams to the regions where new fever cases break out to conduct nucleic acid and antibody tests and probe into the cause of fever. They quarantine and treat all the patients with much care.

The public health sector, the anti-epidemic sector and scientific research institutes direct their efforts to establishing a proper system and order for medical checkup and test.

Each province, city and county has stockpiled anti-epidemic materials as specified in the recently instituted rule.

The anti-epidemic units at all levels reexamine their emergency work system and action plan to be adopted in contingency, ceaselessly revise and supplement them, and conduct drills under simulated conditions in a planned way in order to get ready for actual mobilization.

The major trade ports establish an advanced disinfection process and operate a test system in order to expand their capacities for handling exports and imports.

A system, under which all the officials and working people find all abnormal symptoms and inform the relevant units of their accounts to conduct necessary medical check-ups and tests, has been established.

Therefore, the public anti-epidemic atmosphere gets stronger along with the work for avoiding any slight mistakes in finding out fever cases throughout the country. -0-
