Scientific, technological successes expanded to implement state anti-epidemic policy

The central emergency anti-epidemic sector intensifies activities to further raise and firmly maintain the level of collective immunity throughout the country on the basis of analyzing and synthesizing the course of malignant epidemic and of scientifically confirming the average and longest latent periods of the virus and fever cases’ virus discharge period.

After attentively analyzing the fever cases’ clinical symptoms, reaction to medicines and rate at which they develop serious conditions, virologists, respiratory disease and other relevant experts keenly watch them as they raise the utilization rate of base sequence analysis devices in order to detect new mutated viruses.

Practical measures are taken to shorten the testing time and improve the accuracy of tests by densely establishing a national nuclear acid testing network.

As progress is made in the efforts to develop and introduce scientific and advanced sterilizing technology and methods, researchers developed a new antiseptic solution production technology which ensures its effectiveness without using salt.

Steps are taken to build a serial production process of ultraviolet sterilizing lamp and increase production by ensuring the supply of raw and other materials.

The Academy of Medical Sciences works to set up technical plans for developing different antibody testing methods and ensure the singularity and sensitiveness of test paper on a high level.

Relevant units improve the informatization level of anti-epidemic and medical services including registration of fever patients, healthcare for all the residents and supply, sale and management of medicines by using the public health information network established at the national data communication network.

A research team developed a program for investigating and managing the persons with fever among all the residents to scientifically analyze and assess the spread of COVID-19 and solve technological problems arising in further completing its test information managing system.

Projects are now underway in a far-sighted way to modernize production processes by building up the sci-tech forces at major pharmaceutical factories and Koryo medicine production units and expand production capacity in order to meet national needs.

Scientists and technicians of research, designing and production units pool their efforts to solve sci-tech problems arising in further promoting the qualitative standards and ensuring the serial production of life-saving apparatuses and defibrillators.
