Rodong Sinmun on Importance and Significance of Spring Hygienic Work
Rodong Sinmun on March 20 says in an editorial that to thoroughly establish a cultured way of production and life is not only a noble patriotic work for giving full play to the advantage of the socialist system but also a creative work for one's own sake and rising generation.
The spring hygienic work in March and April this year assumes greater importance and significance under the present circumstances that the whole country carries on the emergency anti-epidemic campaign in an alert and mobilized posture, the editorial says, and goes on:
The acute situation in which the damage by COVID-19 is on rapid increase with each passing day in many countries urges all the officials, Party members and working people to positively turn out in the spring hygienic work with stronger consciousness and strenuous spirit.
The Non-Permanent Central Public Health Guidance Committee of the DPRK already sent to all the regions and every unit the written instructions on turning the hygienic work in March and April into the campaign against COVID-19 and on detailed stepwise plans to be carried out during the months.
The spring hygienic work this year is not a mere activity for healthy environment, but the campaign to defend the security of the state and the life and health of people.
To completely remove all the channels and every possibility for the inroads of the epidemic and signally tighten medical checkup and inspection can be successful only when the broad masses turn out in the campaign.
Officials and working people of every field and unit and all other people should take an active part in sprucing up their worksites and villages in a hygienic and cultured way and thus discharge their responsibilities to the Party and the state and civil duties as required by the reality that witnesses the intensified nationwide anti-epidemic work.
