It has learned in detail the control measures such as entry and customs clearance, transfer to local authorities, centralized isolation, and transfer with dedicated vehicles, so as to establish and improve the daily work cooperation and information communication mechanism. It has detailed its work plan, specially studied the transfer plan of overseas travelers involving railway transport, formulated unified standards and specifications, distinguished the arrival of overseas travelers from different CR regional groups, and defined the whole process control measures such as handover between railway sector and local government, temperature taking at stations and on trains, on-the-way monitoring, sanitation and disinfection, so as to prevent the spreading of the epidemic through the railways in a more rigorous and accurate closed-loop prevention and control.
