Abstract
This National Plan for Emergency Response to Sudden Major Animal Epidemics is a sectoral policy document. It is developed in order to timely and effectively prevent, control, and extinguish sudden major animal epidemics, minimize the harm caused by sudden major animal epidemics to animal husbandry and public health, maintain sustained, stable, and healthy economic development, and ensure the physical health and safety of the people.
This Plan is applicable to the emergency treatment of major animal epidemics that occur suddenly and cause or may cause serious losses in animal husbandry production and serious damage to public health. According to the nature, degree of harm, and scope of the sudden major animal epidemic, it is divided into four levels: particularly severe (Level I), major (Level II), relatively large (Level III), and general (Level IV).
Under the unified leadership of the State Council, the Ministry of Agriculture is responsible for organizing and coordinating the emergency response to major animal epidemics across the country. The veterinary administrative department of the local people's government at or above the county level, under the unified leadership of the people's government at the same level, is responsible for organizing and coordinating the emergency response to major animal epidemics within its administrative region. The Ministry of Agriculture and the veterinary administrative department of the provincial people's government shall set up an expert committee for sudden major animal epidemics.
The state shall establish a network system for monitoring and reporting sudden major animal epidemics. The Ministry of Agriculture and the veterinary administrative departments of local people's governments at various levels should strengthen the management and supervision of monitoring work to ensure the quality of monitoring. The veterinary administrative departments of the people's governments at all levels shall, based on the monitoring information provided by the animal epidemic prevention supervision agencies, analyze the degree of harm and possible development trends of major animal epidemics, and make timely early warnings of corresponding levels.
