China pledges funds to boost infectious disease prevention




China will provide funding to สล็อตทดลองเล่นฟรีทุกค่าย build new institutions and
infrastructure to fight infectious diseases and improve healthcare, the state
planning body said in a "five-year plan" for the sector.


The central government will subsidise the construction of new "prevention bases"
for infectious disease and new grassroots medical facilities across the country,
the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said in the plan,
published on Thursday (Jul 1).


It said China was facing difficult healthcare challenges, including new emerging
infectious diseases, the increasingly heavy burden of chronic illnesses as well as
the growing need for mental health services.


"The public health system is in urgent need of improvement, and the ability to
prevent, control and treat major epidemics is not strong," it warned.


High-quality medical resources are also insufficient and not evenly distributed,
and there are also gaps when it comes to treating women and children, it added.


China acknowledged last year that the spread of COVID-19, first detected in
the city of Wuhan at the end of 2019, had exposed "shortcomings and systemic
problems" in the way it handled health crises.


Though medical facilities are obliged to report outbreaks as soon as they are
identified, Wuhan authorities were accused of trying to cover up early cases
and silencing whistleblowers.


The NDRC said new "major infectious disease prevention bases" would be built
in all major cities, and would be equipped to treat large numbers of patients
and deploy rapid-response teams to affected regions.
