Analysis of Monitoring, Early Warning and Emergency Response System for New Major Infectious Diseases in China and Overseas

Summary

In recent years, the impact of new major infectious diseases on people’s normal life is becoming more and more frequent, which has brought great impact on people’s life safety and social economy, especially the corona virus disease 2019, which has been sweeping the globe. Public health and disease prevention and control systems in different countries have different performances in response to the pandemic, but they all have exposed many shortcomings. Countries around the world urgently need to improve the monitoring, early warning and emergency response systems for new major infectious diseases. As the outpost and main part of medical rescue, the hospital urgently needs to establish a set of scientifically advanced emergency response mechanism that is suitable for the business process of the medical system and unified standards in order to improve the response efficiency and quality of emergency treatment.
