[Headline] PCR laboratory may become the next "ventilator"

In order to further consolidate the current epidemic prevention achievements, we should do a good job of "preventing input from outside and preventing rebound from inside". On April 26th, the National Health and Health Commission held a video conference. At the meeting, Ma Xiaowei, Party Secretary and Director of the National Health and Wellness Commission, demanded that all localities should improve the normalized prevention and control mechanism of timely detection, rapid disposal, precise control and effective treatment, and accurately grasp the internal rebound prevention work.
All disease control institutions at or above the county level and general hospitals at or above the second level should pay close attention to the transformation to form nucleic acid detection capability in a short time. Support all localities to cooperate with third-party medical laboratory to carry out nucleic acid detection when the detection capacity of public medical and health institutions can not meet the demand, and enrich the detection strength. Expand the scope of testing, so as to ensure that key people should do all the inspection, key industries should do random inspection in time, and general people are willing to do all the inspection.

Previously (April 19), the Medical Administration and Hospital Authority of the State Council issued the Notice on Further Doing a Good Job in SARS-CoV-2 Detection during the Epidemic Period, requiring all tertiary general hospitals to establish clinical laboratory that meets the biosafety level II and above standards and has the ability to independently carry out novel coronavirus detection. However, in fact, there are very few tertiary general hospitals that do not have the ability to detect nucleic acids, and the only difference lies in different projects. Second-class hospitals, Baidu Encyclopedia shows that hospitals are divided into Grade I, Grade II and Grade III according to their different functions and tasks. Secondary hospitals are regional hospitals that provide comprehensive medical and health services to multiple communities and undertake certain teaching and scientific research tasks. Generally speaking, county, district and municipal hospitals are all above the second level.
By the end of 2018, hospitals were classified into 1,192 tertiary hospitals (including 722 tertiary hospitals), 6,780 secondary hospitals, 4,989 first-class hospitals and 6,751 unrated hospitals. This time, the Health and Health Commission proposed that the testing institutions should cover general hospitals above the second level, which means that the nucleic acid testing institutions will be expanded to counties, cities and districts, and the testing for ordinary citizens will be more convenient and the price may be reduced.
This time, it is required that general hospitals above secondary level should form nucleic acid detection capability in a short time, which is bound to set off another round of PCR fever, and even some insiders predict that PCR may become the next "breathing machine".
