China's joint prevention and control tactic has been proved to be powerful, orderly and effective in fighting the spreading of A/H1N1 virus, said Vice-Premier Li Keqiang while he presided over a conference on the issue Friday.

The tactic has helped the nation win time and initiative in the efforts to deal with the epidemic, which has protected the people's health rights, reduced its impacts on economy and society in a maximal way, and provided favorable conditions for the country's development, said the official, who is also member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Political Bureau.

Li conveyed the instructions of Hu Jintao, state president and general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, and Premier Wen Jiabao on the issue. He said the situation of the epidemic has been under control in the country.

He called for seriously implementing the decisions and arrangement of the Party Central Committee and the State Council and adopting countermeasures that are compatible to China's realities.

"Persist on and improve preventive and controlling measures that have been proven effective and do a good job in the preventive and controlling work in a scientific, open and transparent way in accordance with law, so as to ensure people's health and normal production and life, and maintain social harmony and stability," he said.

The official praised the hard efforts and outstanding contribution made by Chinese quarantine officers and medical workers in the prevention and control of the epidemic. The patients found in China have mostly come from abroad and the majority of them are minor cases that have been cured in a relatively short time, he noted.

While the epidemic situation is developing outside of the country and the WHO has raised its flu alert to the highest level, the number of imported flu cases has increased relatively quickly over the past few days,according to the official.

China will try to minimize the number of locally transmitted cases, prevent the spreading of the virus in communities, increase the abilities of handling seriously ill patients, and speed up the pace of studying and producing the vaccine, in order to prepare for future changes of the epidemic, Li said.

Ma Kai, state councilor and secretary general of the State Council, attended the meeting.
