Now it's been far more than 72 hours since Saturday's Sichuan earthquake, which means the so called "golden rescue time" has passed, but vice governor Zhong Mian, says search and rescue efforts will continue despite that.

"Searching and rescuing people and treating the wounded continues to be an important task. We will focus on key areas and weak regions, carry out an intensive search and rescue, and make sure there's no blind spot. In the meantime, we will further improve the local medical conditions in the quake-hit areas, and make efforts on the medical treatment of the wounded."

196-people have been confirmed dead following magnitude 7 quake, with 21 others listed as missing.

Almost 300-thousand people living in the quake zone have also been relocated, and Zhong Mian says there won't be any discrimination as far as relief distribution goes.

"Regardless of where you are from, regardless of ethnicity and nationality, as long as you were affected by the disaster in this region, you will receive rescue and help. Therefore, I can say with certainty that, there is no discrimination or restrictions based on the household registration, and in the future, there will not be different policies made based on this."

Local officials are also calling for patience as some affected people are saying they have not received relief materials in time.

The delay is thought to be partly due to disruptions caused by poor road conditions.
