  Hot Comment|Cross-border exchanges return to normal customs clearance is behind the optimization of prevention and control policies

It has been more than a week since my country officially implemented the new type of coronavirus infection “Class B and B control”. Many countries warmly welcome Chinese tourists, and my country’s major ports of entry also present long-lost lively scenes. On the eve of the Spring Festival in 2023 after three years of fighting the epidemic, such a scene is particularly comforting.

Since the implementation of the new regulations for a week, “smooth” is the common feeling of many customs clearance passengers, which stems from the “excellent” entry-exit management measures. Immigration management agencies strive to achieve that Chinese citizens queue up for entry and exit customs clearance for no more than 30 minutes, and more than 3,200 public security entry and exit windows across the country are open to ensure order…From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, embassies and consulates abroad to the National Immigration Administration, customs departments, and then to The Civil Aviation Administration of China, local public security organs, and various departments have cooperated and worked together online and offline to create favorable conditions for the orderly exchange of Chinese and foreign personnel. Since January 8, the number of entry and exit has increased significantly, and the popularity of sea, land and air ports has risen simultaneously, and the operation has been smooth and orderly.

Once the new regulations were released, searches for international air tickets and popular overseas destinations on various platforms surged. At the same time, “Welcome Chinese tourists” has become the first invitation issued by many countries, and the world expects China to inject more vitality into the development of global tourism and economic recovery.

At present, the pathogenicity of the Omicron strain has been weakened, but the infectivity is still increasing. Among the more than 70 recombinants of the Omicron variant strains that have been discovered in the world, XBB and its subbranches have become the main popular branches. Therefore, in terms of entry, my country still requires passengers to undergo nucleic acid testing 48 hours before boarding the plane. After landing, the customs will conduct antigen testing on passengers who have symptoms or report abnormalities. “Class B and B management” is not letting go. Retaining these measures is precisely to ensure smooth customs clearance and prevent the cross-border spread of the virus.

In addition to port monitoring, the monitoring of sentinel hospitals has formed a second checkpoint. At present, my country has set up a certain number of sentinel hospitals in 31 provinces (municipalities, autonomous regions) and the Xinjiang Construction Corps to monitor and warn the mutation and spread of the new coronavirus in real time. In addition, from personnel, medicines to medical equipment, our country has also made full preparations for medical treatment.

The Spring Festival is approaching. At this time, the optimization and adjustment of the epidemic prevention and control policy will allow people to go home for reunion on the one hand, and on the other hand, prevent the risk of infection caused by large-scale population movement as much as possible. At this time, the strings of personal self-protection should not be loosened, especially the elderly, vulnerable groups with underlying diseases, and high-risk groups, and a multi-pronged approach should be taken to ensure a happy and peaceful festival.

The global epidemic is not over yet. By maintaining strategic determination and scientifically optimizing epidemic prevention measures, we can resume normal work and life rhythms, usher in the dawn of anti-epidemic, and usher in the warm spring and blossoming days.
