Xinhua news agency, Beijing, July, 21, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, chairman of the CPC Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission Xi Jinping made important instructions on flood prevention and relief work.
Xi Jinping pointed out that recently, Henan and other places continued to encounter heavy rainfall, and city such as Zhengzhou had serious waterlogging. Some rivers appeared to be exceeding the police level. Some reservoirs broke down, some railways were stopped and flights were canceled, causing heavy casualties and property losses. The flood prevention situation was very severe.
Xi Jinping stressed that at present, the key period of flood control has been entered, and leading cadres at all levels should always put the protection of people's lives and property in the first place, take the lead and rely on the preceding command, organize flood prevention and disaster relief quickly, properly reposition the affected people, strictly prevent secondary disasters, and minimize casualties and property losses. The PLA and the armed police should actively assist local governments in carrying out emergency and disaster relief work. The national headquarters for prevention and control, the Ministry of emergency management, the Ministry of water resources and the Ministry of transportation should strengthen overall coordination, strengthen the inspection and risk elimination of potential disaster hazards, strengthen the safety protection of important infrastructure, improve the early warning and prediction level of rainfall, typhoon, mountain flood and debris flow, strengthen traffic diversion, and pay close attention to various flood control and disaster relief measures.
Xi Jinping urged all relevant departments in the region to resume production and living order as soon as possible while doing well in flood control and disaster relief work. We should do a solid job in helping and rescuing disaster victims and sanitation and epidemic prevention work, so as to prevent disasters from returning to poverty and "serious epidemics after major disasters".
