Members of Communist Party of China Train for COVID19 Prevention in Korea (17.2.2020)

(Translated by Adrian Chan-Wyles PhD)

Translator’s Note: China and North Korea are working closely to support one another’s efforts in securing the well-being of the people, whilst effectively fighting the corona virus. Although not specificaly mentioned in this text, whilst I was researching the background to this article in Beijing, I was told that Korean-language speakers were being trained in China to help stop the epidemic before being deployed to North Korea – and that those Koreans fluent in the Chinese language – are likewise being deployed in China! ACW (19.3.2020)

Liu Shenghua (刘盛华) is studying at the School of International Education in Jiangxi University – he is a level-17 Korean language student, and a Communist Party of China (CPC) Probationary Member.

The outbreak of the ‘new’ corona virus infection (which is a form of pneumonia that shares 70% of the earlier SARS genetic makeup) is getting worse. Two important documents entitled – “Central Committee Administration Advice” and the “Notice on Further Improving the Prevention and Control of Pneumonia Epidemic Situation of New Coronavirus Infection in Rural Areas” – have been jointly issued by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Jiangxi Provincial Prevention and Control Command. The instruction in these two documents is being applied (through the authority of the Village Committee) in Liu Shenghua’s home-village (Shangsheng [上盛] Village, Longmen Town, Ji’an City, Yongxin County, Jiangxi Province). All the regions of China possess democratically elected mirroring Communist Party Committees (comprised of local people) which send delegates to Beijing to advise the CPC Central Committee, and which discuss Central Committee decisions (adjusting advice to local conditions). Every decision is democratically decided (through discussion) as being in the best interests of the people.

At 9am on February 4th, 2020, the Village Committee deployed several urgently needed Epidemic Prevention and Control volunteers, specially trained in the field of disease control and the knowledge to carry out rural epidemic prevention and control work. The epidemic is currently under way. As a college student receiving (free) higher education, Liu Shenghua bravely came forward to participate as a volunteer for Epidemic Prevention and Control.

Anti-epidemic activities are serious and challenging. The village leaders have conducted local training for volunteers, instructing them how to carry out legal and effective epidemic prevention, and introduced some practical epidemic prevention techniques. After that, the person in charge travelled to convenient gathering points between a number of villages to ask for volunteers and spread the training. When an effective Cadre was developed, certain vomunteers travelled to each village and gave lectures in disease prevention. Other people are responsible for visiting the clinics and hospitals of various villages to assist patients in seeking medical treatment, whilst others are responsible for visiting the villages to help the elderly and the disabled. Liu Shenghua was responsible for persuading outsiders not to enter other villages, and for everyone to understand the science behind the concept of ‘quarantine’, and how it is important to limit physical contact whilst not moving around.

Liu Shenghua’s work lasted 3 days. During the volunteer period, he successfully persuaded more than 10 villagers to stop entering the village, helped 6 villagers to wear masks, and introduced the villagers to the correct precautions to limit the epidemic.

Liu Shenghua said, “The medical staff and volunteers who are fighting on the front lines of the epidemic are great. As a Party Member of the CPC, we must firmly align with them. The rural anti-epidemic work depended me and I tried my best to implement our mission, don’t be an onlooker! “

我校学生预备党员在家乡参加防控疫情活动

发布时间:2020-02-17

刘盛华,就读于我校国际教育学院,17级朝鲜语系学生,同时也是一名中共预备党员。

新型冠状病毒感染的肺炎疫情每况愈下,为了落实党中央指示和江西省防控疫情指挥部下发的《关于进一步做好农村地区新型冠状病毒感染的肺炎疫情防控工作的通知》,刘盛华的居住地村委会(江西省吉安市永新县龙门镇上盛村村委会)在当地乡政府的指导下开展了农村防控疫情活动,以提高农村群众的防病意识和防病能力。

2020年2月4日上午9点,村委会广播通知急需有一定知识背景的数名疫情防控志愿者,以开展农村疫情防控工作。疫情当前,全员皆兵。作为一名接受高等教育的大学生,刘盛华主动申请参加此次活动,做一名疫情防控志愿者。

抗疫活动严肃而充满挑战。村负责人对志愿者进行了临时培训,指导他们如何进行合法防疫、有效防疫,并介绍了一些实用性的疫情防范技巧。之后,负责人根据每个志愿者具备的知识和特长将志愿者分别投入到进村路口摆点、防控宣传走访以及乡镇医疗队。一部分人负责到各村镇诊所和医院协助患者就医,一部分人负责到各村走访宣传疫情防范知识。而刘盛华负责在进村路口劝导外来人员不进入其他村以及宣传防疫方法。

刘盛华的工作持续了3天。志愿者期间,他成功劝导了十余名串村人员不进入村子,帮助了6名村民配戴口罩,给村民们介绍了疫情的正确防范措施。

刘盛华说:“奋战在抗疫前线的医务人员和志愿者们,他们是伟大的。作为一名中共预备党员更要坚定向他们看齐。农村抗疫工作从我做起,尽己之力,践行使命,不做旁观者!”
