1. Healthcare facilities are urged to fulfill their obligation of reporting notifiable diseases. Local public health bureaus are instructed to strengthen the supervision of healthcare facilities under their jurisdiction, requiring them to immediately report a patient who meets the criteria for "severe pneumonia with novel pathogens reporting and testing" for testing and encouraging them to report a patient who meets the criteria for "community surveillance reporting and testing" for testing.

2. Indicators for incentive schemes, including "enhanced screening among patients with pneumonia in outpatient and emergency departments", "enhanced screening among inpatients" and "enhanced health monitoring among medical and nursing staff", are introduced to promote the reporting of suspected cases for testing through the community surveillance system.
