Mr. Wang from Lintao County, Dingxi City, Gansu Province reported to the People’s Daily Health Client that after they returned from Hangzhou to Lanzhou, Gansu Province and got off the bus on June 1, someone picked them up, regardless of whether they came from a low-risk area or a green health code. The code and itinerary code without stars, and the 48-hour nucleic acid negative certificate are all required to be quarantined at their own expense for 3 days, and each person costs about 1,000 yuan. The quarantine hotel is still receiving other guests as normal.

The reporter consulted the local staff and replied: “Now Dingxi City implements a 3-day self-funded centralized quarantine for all those returning from low-risk areas in other provinces, because now epidemic prevention and control are territorial management, and each place has its own policy, this The policy was also formulated by the Dingxi Municipal Health Commission.”

It is really surprising that Dingxi City has done this blatantly.

From the information feedback from the Internet, there are still many cities in Gansu that are “one size fits all” like Dingxi, including Jiayuguan, Longnan, Tianshui, Jiuquan and other places have introduced stricter epidemic prevention and control measures, even if you hold a green code, you need to accept Centralized isolation. Even due to the inconsistent isolation time, it is necessary to continue the isolation from Jiayuguan to Jiuquan. According to the epidemic prevention and control reminder issued by the Gansu Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention on May 12, “the green code personnel will continue to carry out three-day health monitoring, and they can flow in an orderly manner after the two nucleic acid tests are negative during the period.”

On June 2, the joint prevention and control mechanism of the State Council held a press conference to introduce the overall situation of epidemic prevention and control and production in key industries. Mi Feng, spokesperson of the National Health and Health Commission and deputy director of the Publicity Department, emphasized that various prevention and control measures must be implemented scientifically and accurately, and the isolation time should not be arbitrarily increased, and no restrictions should be imposed on people in low-risk areas without authorization. Resolutely prevent simplification, one-size-fits-all, and prevent layers of overweight.

Judging from the clear policy instructions of this meeting, people from low-risk areas entering some places in Gansu are definitely targeted. The epidemic prevention policies being implemented by many cities in the province violate the unified regulations of the State Council and are obviously “simplified”. One-size-fits-all” and “layers of coding”. Not only is the public resentment bubbling, but it also violates the guidelines of national policies. Such illegal and unreasonable chaotic actions, under the pretext of “territorial management”, are still going their own way, which is puzzling.

The so-called “territorial management” can only mean that a region or a city implements the State Council’s joint epidemic prevention and control policy. It is not synonymous with “everything goes its own way”, nor does it mean that regardless of the unified deployment, it is only a “small calculus of one place and one city”. “. If there is no one-size-fits-all approach in other places, only these places are doing it. In addition to creating obstacles to the flow of people and causing criticism, they are also actually engaging in isolationism and “mountainism”.

Those affected by the “one-size-fits-all” lazy government are also willing to speculate on the Dingxi policy with good intentions, thinking that it is a small place with an underdeveloped economy that cannot withstand the impact of the epidemic, so take strict precautions in advance. From what Mr. Wang reported, the hotel that undertakes the centralized isolation is not a special hotel, and other guests can stay as normal. Although they are not on the same floor, this arrangement obviously violates the science of epidemic prevention and is far from the norms of isolation operations.

If we really do “one size fits all” for the needs of epidemic prevention, we should see a serious attitude towards the spread of the virus, but in fact this is not the case at all. Therefore, those who had to accept the 3-day quarantine believed that this was an act of making a fortune through the epidemic policy-considering the actual situation, such a condemnation cannot be said to be extreme, but a normal social supervision and public opinion supervision.

Of course, in an interview with the media, the person in the quarantined hotel said that it was “observation” rather than “quarantine” – the implied meaning was that it did not break the regulations of the State Council, but as long as it is substituted into the actual operation, this sophistry is meaningless. It is actually a “one-size-fits-all” layered code.

Since there are three orders and five applications from the State Council, and there are continuous and severe criticisms from public opinion, why are there still many “one-size-fits-all” epidemic prevention measures in some places? In fact, based on past news, it can be roughly concluded that the larger the city, the less “one size fits all” measures, and the more affluent areas, the fewer restrictions on the movement of people. This is probably because these regions need to consider the business environment.

However, some poor and backward areas in the west are lacking in the ability of epidemic prevention, and the economic cost of strict epidemic prevention is relatively small, and there is a lot of room for improvement in their own business environment. The impact can also be ignored. Therefore, it is often difficult for these places to use economic pressure to force them to improve their epidemic prevention policies. The political risk involved in the emergence of an epidemic is very high, and the economic cost affected by “one size fits all” is not unacceptable. Many small local leading cadres have taken advantage of the epidemic prevention measures. Only by making “one size fits all” similar to the consequences of the outbreak, can it be possible to cut off the “path dependence” of epidemic prevention in these places.

In short, Lintao County’s “one size fits all” approach can reflect Dingxi’s “local policy”. Whether it is in the implementation of the unified regulations of the State Council or the scientific nature of epidemic prevention, there are “hard flaws” that cannot be concealed. This is not an invention of Lintao County, but the same path choices in similar places, reviewing unreasonable policies, replacing the “one-size-fits-all” approach of lazy government with meticulous prevention and control, returning to the “original intention” of epidemic prevention, and facilitating the smooth flow of people. It’s not an obstacle, it’s not just a top priority for Dingxi Lintao.
