Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in December 2019, Wuhan in Hubei Province remains at the forefront of the battle against the fatal contagious disease. On February 13, the Party chiefs of Hubei Province and Wuhan were relieved of their posts and the fight against the virus entered a new phase after new officials were entrusted with the mission at a critical and difficult moment. The epidemic holds up a mirror to the shortcomings of the local governance system and capability, and there are many lessons to be learned. The new officials are fully aware of the difficult situation of epidemic prevention and control and have proposed measures with a focus on saving patients, quarantining and bringing in relief supplies. Hospitals are rushing to provide more beds for critical patients and reduce the mortality rate, trying to leave no patients in limbo at home. Meanwhile, it is of crucial importance to provide more timely support to the large number of medical workers who are at high risk of infection.BIUCXBIUCX
