XI'AN — Vice-Premier Sun Chunlan has urged vigilance and persistence in epidemic control in Northwest China's Shaanxi province, which is experiencing a COVID-19 resurgence.

Sun, also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remarks while researching and directing the anti-epidemic work in the province's capital city of Xi'an, and Xianyang.

Sun visited communities, hospitals, quarantine sites, emergency centers and supermarkets to learn about closed-off management, medical service and supply of necessities.

Sun noted the sharp decline in Xi'an's new COVID-19 cases, but warned that the epidemic containment is still at a crucial stage, and the situation must not be taken lightly.

Noting that five national medical teams have been sent to aid Xi'an, Sun stressed death caused by COVID-19 must be avoided.

Sun also urged measures to improve access to emergency hotline and medical service.
