Storyline


Sterilization and disinfection were quick and thorough in Jiuzhaigou after Tuesday's magnitude-7.0 earthquake. Up till now, there is no reported case of infectious diseases or other public health crisis in this water-rich area of southwest China's Sichuan Province.

Specialists have been not only sterilizing and disinfecting the surroundings of temporary relocation sites for Jiuzhaigou residents. They've been also disseminating knowledge concerning drinking water and food in emergency situations. At a relocation site, there are some 700 people evacuated from Jiuzhaigou.

"The first 72 hours of after disasters are normally the critical period of time for epidemic prevention. We're focusing on village toilets and garbage disposal and collection sites this time around. We're of course centering on human dwellings, like relocation sites. We've strictly sterilized their surrounding areas. These efforts have got to work effectively on after-earthquake disease prevention," said Luo Yong, chief of the Emergency Hygiene and Epidemic Prevention Group at Zoige County.

Authorities are closely monitoring the quality of local water while providing evacuees with bottled drinking water for the time being.

"We monitor the water quality everyday and for three days on end. We report to the risk management center everyday before six," added Luo.

The post-earthquake sterilization and disinfection will continue for another week.

In the meanwhile, the Sichuan Provincial People's Hospital is busy treating those wounded in Tuesday's earthquake.

"Until now, we totally received 35 patients. So overall, most patients went very well under the intensive care. So most people are getting better. However, there are seven severely-injured patients. They are still in the ICU receiving intensive care," said Deng Shaoping, principal of the hospital.

By Saturday, the Jiuzhaigou earthquake has claimed the lives of 24 people and wounded 493 others.
