Pyongyang, June 25 (KCNA) -- Measures are being taken in the DPRK to completely stamp out the spread of COVID-19, thoroughly prevent the outbreak of various pandemic diseases and turn all the regions of the country into epidemic-free zones.

The emergency anti-epidemic sector, the public health sector and other relevant sectors closely observe the worldwide outbreak and spread of Omicron coronavirus sub-variants and other pandemic diseases like monkeypox, taking preemptive and far-sighted anti-epidemic measures quickly.

In constant liaison with medical research units, the central anti-epidemic sector fixes the quarantine period and the lockdown level for the fever cases and the epidemic-prone areas more accurately.

Proceeding at the final stage is the research for developing a video diagnosis aid system for quickly differentiating various respiratory diseases from the malignant pandemic disease. Intensive technical courses are given to raise the practical abilities of medical workers of treatment and prevention organs.

Cooperating with the emergency anti-epidemic organs, the public health sector carefully carries out an epidemiological survey of various areas and units in Pyongyang to accurately confirm the clinical symptoms exhibited by people with different ages and physical constitutions as aftereffects of the pandemic disease. It pushes ahead with drawing up and issuing treatment guides for aftereffects by mobilizing public health experts from central hospitals.

As new Omicron coronavirus sub-variants spread in neighboring countries and regions, the emergency anti-epidemic units at all levels regularly examine water of rivers near the border and other areas concerned, while strongly urging citizens not to touch any strange objects and wild animals.

Measures are taken proactively to strengthen the mobile rapid treatment force in each region and cope with any abnormal situation by dispatching medical workers to rural villages and other areas of low mass immunity level.

The medical research sector focuses its efforts on intensifying research and taking scientific measures to scientifically and technologically ensure the enhancement of the state counter-crisis capability.

While making and issuing the test guides for detecting monkeypox, they direct their study to completing scientific test methods and system, organizing technical courses for inspection teams and supplying necessary medicines under a scientific calculation and detailed plan.

Medical appliance producers across the country put efforts into developing and producing various test tools and emergency resuscitating equipment, and medicine and medical supplies producers contribute to strengthening the material and technical foundations for promptly coping with any health crisis by increasing production. -0-
