Tianjin is making all-out efforts to protect the health, prevent and treat severe cases, and ensure adequate supply of pandemic materials.
Measures have been taken to boost access to medical treatment and drugs, improve health services for the elderly and other vulnerable groups, accelerate COVID-19 vaccination, and strengthen epidemic prevention and control in rural areas.
To ensure that patients infected with COVID-19 can be treated as early as possible, staff at emergency centers have been working against the time. Shen Runkun, a doctor at an emergency center in Tianjin said, "My colleagues have all stayed on the front line. We hope to overcome the difficulties by working together."
The Second Hospital of Tianjin Medical University, for its part, has set up a second emergency area, expanding the original 44 beds in the emergency room to 70 beds, and dispatched ventilators, transnasal high-flow oxygenators, infusion pumps and other equipment to ensure that patients with critical illnesses have adequate resources for breathing, according to Chen Bing, vice president of the hospital.
According to Li Shanglun, director of the emergency center, there are now 449 ambulances in the city.
"We have relatively abundant manpower support. We have the confidence and ability to provide high-quality pre-hospital medical emergency services for our people in Tianjin," Li said.
It also tries to ensure the supply of other pandemic materials. As a pandemic materials supplier, Naton Medical Protective Equipment (Tianjin) Co., Ltd. produces millions of masks every day, which are shipped from Tianjin to hospitals and pharmacies across the country.
