First of all, from the previous second wave of outbreaks in South Korea between August and September, the normal operation of the “convenient passage” for business personnel between China and South Korea has not been affected. Therefore, after passing the health monitoring, quarantine inspection, and strictly following the closed-loop principle, the “fast channel” mode of business personnel under effective management is accepted. At present, it is an effective means to promote economic and trade cooperation and personnel exchanges between Northeast Asia under the normal epidemic situation. . At the same time, business cooperation models such as cross-border e-commerce, digital economy, and video conferencing that adapt to the new situation should be normalized.
Secondly, in order to respond to the new corona pneumonia epidemic, China, Japan and South Korea began to improve and strengthen the emergency response mechanism for health and epidemic prevention communication and coordination, implement joint prevention and control, strengthen the exchange of epidemic information and communication with counterpart departments, exchange prevention and control experience and technology, and carry out cooperation in the fields of diagnosis and treatment programs, drug vaccine research and development. China, Japan and South Korea have formed a common epidemic prevention concept in the anti-epidemic process in the bilateral, trilateral, and East Asian regions, and the unique regional identity, sense of belonging and common values of East Asia have been further improved.
Third, the global anti-epidemic action is still continuing. From the analysis of the characteristics of the new coronavirus, humans will coexist with the new coronavirus for a long time before effective vaccines are generally vaccinated. Therefore, China, Japan and South Korea must change the characteristics of emergency and expediency in epidemic prevention and control cooperation, and should further responsibly conduct joint prevention and control, share experience, provide assistance, joint scientific and technological research, and establish a more complete regional public health cooperation mechanism and governance. system. In view of the similarity of the human body in the East, it is recommended that the vaccine sharing mechanism between China, Japan, South Korea and the entire East Asia region be realized as soon as possible to create an East Asian anti-epidemic community.
