China has accelerated COVID-19 vaccine rollouts among priority populations, as well as in key regions and cities, said the National Health Commission spokesman Mi Feng, demanding resolute rectification of compulsory COVID-19 vaccination in some places.



Compulsory这个词我们最常见的是compulsory education(义务教育),即“国家法律规定必须接受的教育”,compulsory一般都包含“强制的、必须的”等意思,比如:the government made masks compulsory for people to wear in most public indoor settings(政府要求在大多数室内公共场所必须戴口罩), compulsory traffic accident liability insurance(交通事故强制责任险/交强险)。

More than 164.47 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines had been administered across China as of Saturday, the National Health Commission said.


China encourages voluntary COVID-19 vaccinations, and works to ensure all people eligible for vaccination have access to it.


Some provinces and regions have taken effective measures on the basis of their own situations and have accumulated experiences during the process, but there are also some places making vaccinations rigidly uniform and allowing for no flexibility.



所谓的“一刀切”指的是不针对具体情况,只用某种固定方式处理。上述英文报道中用了uniform这个词来表达“一刀切”。Uniform用作名词是“制服”,比如,school uniform(校服),military uniform(军装)等,都是统一制式的服装,uniform用作形容词的时候表示“the same; not changing or different in any way”(相同的,没有任何差别的),比如:The office walls and furniture are a uniform grey(办公室的墙和家具都是统一的灰色),Small businesses are demanding that they receive uniform treatment from the banks(小型企业要求银行对他们一视同仁)。

"Although not a common issue, it does reflect that the organization and management of the vaccination process in some regions is not delicate or accurate," Wu said.


We'll also guide people to reasonably consider adverse reactions from vaccinations and improve their confidence in domestically manufactured vaccines.


China still faces risks of an epidemic rebound due to imported cases, said Wu Zunyou. He cited the example of Ruili city in southwest China's Yunnan province, where new cluster infections were reported in late March.


Wu warned against relaxing self-imposed prevention in spring.


He urged people to strictly follow prevention measures, including wearing masks in public, handwashing, social distancing, and regular ventilation.

regulatory talk

“约谈(regulatory talk)”作为行政执法措施(administrative law enforcement),是承担经济社会有关领域监督管理职责的行政执法机关(supervisory and administrative organs),针对出现的问题,在事先约定的时间、地点与作为当事人的公民、法人或者其他组织进行沟通交流,以警示、告诫(warning or admonishment)等方式,督促其遵纪守法(urge law-abidingness),引导当事人采取自愿的作为或者不作为,尽量避免违法问题发生或者扩大,维护公共利益(safeguard public interest)。

After the previous talks with regulators in December last year, Ant Group has set up a special task force to map a rectification plan under the guidance of the financial authorities and to actively carry out the rectification work.


The company should break the monopoly of information, and guarantee the security of personal and State information.


Ant Group as a whole will apply to become a financial holding company, and all its institutions engaged in financial businesses will be included in the financial holding company and be regulated.


The company should strictly implement the requirements of prudent regulation, improve corporate governance, and rectify non-compliant lending, insurance, wealth management and other financial activities, and curb high leverage and risk contagion.


The company should manage liquidity risks of important fund products and actively reduce the balance of its money market fund Yu'EBao.
