WUHAN, March 16 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Sun Chunlan on Monday called for unremitting efforts to curb the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and targeted policies to boost work resumption.
Leading a central government group to guide the epidemic control work in Hubei, the center of the coronavirus outbreak, Sun, also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remarks while inspecting production resumption and spring plowing in Wuhan, capital of Hubei.
The group inspected automobile factories, food processing enterprises, and vegetable bases.
Hubei and Wuhan should strengthen the support for enterprises to resume operation, Sun said, especially transportation to facilitate people within the province to return to work and serve logistics.
Sun also urged related administrations to solve practical difficulties and problems in the fields including taxation, finance and supply chain for enterprises.
Government at all levels should ensure the supply of protective materials for COVID-19 to enterprises and guide companies to improve disinfection and temperature testing, Sun stressed.
