The original intention is to lead and gather forces, becoming a new force in scientific and technological innovation and epidemic prevention
On February 2, General Secretary Xi Jinping held a conference in Beijing to coordinate and promote the prevention and control of the new crown pneumonia epidemic and the deployment of economic and social development, and put forward seven major requirements for prevention and control work and eight major requirements for the orderly resumption of work and production. In order to implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech and convey the work deployment requirements of the Shenzhen Municipal Party Committee and the Work Committee of Municipal Organs on epidemic prevention and control, the Party Branch of Shenzhen Bay Laboratory held a meeting in the form of video and on-site on February 23, and Zhan Qimin, director of the laboratory, summarized and deployed the recent key work according to the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech.
First, the original intention to lead, science and technology to fight the epidemic
At present, the prevention and control of the new coronavirus epidemic is in a critical period, and winning the "obstruction war" of epidemic prevention and control is the biggest political task and the most important task. Shenzhen Bay Laboratory gives full play to the platform advantages of life information and biomedicine to take the lead in organizing scientific and technological research. Under the guidance of the Municipal Science and Technology Innovation Commission, the laboratory urgently launched the new coronavirus emergency prevention and control project on January 1, established a new crown pneumonia scientific research team headed by Academician Wu Yundong, and cooperated with the Shenzhen Third People's Hospital and the Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention to cooperate on new coronavirus inhibitors, new coronavirus biomarkers, metabolic characteristics, molecular mechanisms, virus transmission risk prediction and prevention and control strategy research, etc., to provide biotechnology research support for the fight against the epidemic.
Second, orderly resumption of work, strict prevention and control
In order to prevent the spread of the epidemic, according to the requirements of the work deployment of the superiors, the laboratory quickly formulated the "Shenzhen Bay Laboratory Emergency Notice on Doing a Good Job in Epidemic Prevention and Control" and "Notice on Further Doing a Good Job in Relevant Work Arrangements During the Epidemic", and forwarded relevant documents of the central government, provinces and municipalities several times to do a good job in emergency prevention and control. At the same time, do a good job in the prevention and control of the laboratory office environment, and adopt the "online + offline" office mode to ensure that the epidemic prevention work and scientific research work are "both correct". At present, the prevention and control of the epidemic in the laboratory continues to maintain the "double zero" state of "zero infection and zero import". In addition, the Party branch encourages all Party members to actively participate in anti-epidemic volunteer activities and cooperate with neighborhood offices and communities to do a good job in epidemic prevention and control. During the epidemic period, the Party Branch of Shenzhen Bay Laboratory will continue to mobilize more Party members to actively participate in anti-epidemic activities and give full play to the role of the branch as a fighting fortress.
Third, popularize public opinion through science, seek truth and speed
Shenzhen Bay Laboratory adheres to the principle of authenticity and effectiveness, and has created a column of "Scientific Research News - Research Progress of Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia" on the WeChat public account, since January 1, scientists have taken the initiative to take the lead, adhering to the spirit of rigorous and scientific research, in-depth analysis and research on the composition and epidemiological research of the new coronavirus, according to the actual research situation, to achieve daily more uninterrupted, up to now a total of 31 issues, real-time announcement of new coronavirus research trends. The laboratory also encourages all employees to widely forward publicity, disseminate scientific and credible epidemic information to the people around them, relieve self-stress, relieve anxiety, and reduce the impact of rumors. In the next step, the laboratory will continue to do a good job in the research of the new coronavirus, overcome difficulties, release scientific and effective information in real time, do a good job in public opinion publicity, and contribute scientific research to the national, provincial and municipal crackdown on rumors.
Under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core, the Party Branch of Shenzhen Bay Laboratory, as a member of the anti-epidemic team, will continue to make arrangements for resumption of work in accordance with the deployment of superiors, comprehensively do a good job in protective measures, give play to the role of the Party organization as a fighting fortress and the vanguard and exemplary role of Party members, unite the "hardcore" forces of scientific research from all parties, jointly build an iron wall for epidemic prevention and control, and contribute strong intellectual support and scientific research strength to winning the "blocking war" of epidemic prevention at an early date.
