Recently, a netizen uploaded a video. A villager in a certain place in Henan specially rushed back to his hometown to harvest wheat. Everyone went to the field to start harvesting. The village party secretary suddenly ran over and asked the villagers to stop first without saying a word. light, otherwise you will not be allowed to cut the wheat. In response to this matter, the reporter interviewed the person in charge of the relevant department of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs. The person in charge said that the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs has paid attention to the relevant situation and asked the relevant provinces to carefully check and solve any problems.

Seeing the one-sided criticism from netizens, the village party secretary may still feel aggrieved. Check the 48-hour nucleic acid negative certificate, isn’t this responsible for the prevention and control, why is it scolded? The reason is very simple. Although epidemic prevention is special and important, it is ultimately a means of protecting life, not life itself, nor the whole of life. When doing things, you need to consider the priorities. You can’t help but put the cart before the horse. You will definitely get things wrong, and of course you will be criticized.
The summer wheat harvest is the first batch of grain harvested every year. It is related to the bumper harvest and price stability of the whole year, and it is related to the overall situation of national food security.

However, the summer wheat harvest is characterized by tight time, heavy tasks and insufficient manpower. On the one hand, farming follows the solar terms. Harvesting wheat is like putting out a fire. Longkou takes the grain. One day later, it is possible to encounter catastrophic weather such as dry and hot winds, strong storms and rain, which will affect the quality and yield of wheat. On the other hand, today, many rural areas are Young and middle-aged people all go out to work. During the epidemic, it is not easy to take a leave and come back to harvest wheat. It is even more necessary to hurry up with the mobile harvester to harvest wheat.
Under such circumstances, people are preparing to work in the fields, and suddenly they say that they are not allowed to harvest the wheat until they have 48 hours of nucleic acid. Isn’t this a typical delay in farming and embarrassing farmers?
Some people will definitely say that if you want a nucleic acid certificate, just do it, and if you do it, come back and cut it. You know, in many big cities, there is a nucleic acid testing point within a few dozen steps, but it is a big project to ensure that everyone has a nucleic acid test every 48 hours, let alone in the countryside? Besides, the purpose of doing nucleic acid is to screen out positive infections and reduce the risk of infection in everyone’s life and work. Is the local epidemic to such an extent that it takes 48 hours to normalize nucleic acids? Only a few people go down to harvest wheat, and in such a ventilated and spacious wheat field, how big is the risk of infection?
This is not to say that village cadres should not strictly implement epidemic prevention regulations, but prevention and control should not forget their original intentions. The purpose of blocking the new crown virus is to make the people healthy and safe, to live and work in peace and contentment, and to harvest summer grain in time. It is also to allow everyone to hold their jobs and live in peace! Knowing clearly that the farming season cannot be delayed, it is necessary to “find faults” when the farmers go to the fields. Either the desire for power is too inflated and the hands are stretched too long; Responsible, in fact slacking off the pot.
Regarding how to deal with the relationship between epidemic prevention and control and agricultural production, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs has made three orders and five declarations, repeatedly emphasizing that rural epidemic prevention should not be simplified, “one size fits all”, and should not be increased layer by layer. It is strictly forbidden to set up cards to intercept, arbitrarily cut off roads and block villages, and prevent farmers from going to the ground on the grounds of epidemic prevention and control, delaying the farming time and affecting agricultural production. However, there are always places where it seems that they cannot understand the requirements or the situation, and set up various “stuck points” and “blocking points” to hinder the spring ploughing and then come to harm the summer harvest.
At the root of it, I am afraid that the accountability and accountability are not strict, resulting in insufficient enforcement. Many grass-roots cadres have such an idea: “If you manage it strictly, you will be fine. If there is an epidemic, you will lose your hat.” It may be too troublesome and difficult for them to focus on epidemic prevention and farm work. They have paid great attention to the issue of “keeping their hats”, even at the expense of violating the original intention of the policy and undermining the laws of agriculture. In the final analysis, there is still no sincere service to the masses, and lack of the responsibility to face the “urgency and sorrow”.
To truly implement “epidemic prevention does not miss the agricultural season”, and to put an end to layer-by-layer overweight and “one size fits all”, it is necessary to implement strict supervision and strict accountability for those who are obviously lazy in government, embarrassing the masses, and aggressive and aggressive, and further emphasizes the importance of agricultural production. The importance of ensuring a good harvest is the same as preventing the epidemic as a battle that cannot be lost and an inescapable responsibility.
