It was learned at the related meeting held on June 27 that Ningbo has started the pilot work of urban physical examination, and the Zhaobao Mountain Sub-district of Zhenhai District, and Baizhang Sub-district and Zhonghe Sub-district of Yinzhou District were identified as the pilot areas. 39 communities in the pilot areas will undergo the urban physical examination.

Regular physical examinations are required to identify diseases, diagnose the cause, prescribe medication, and solve problems and conflicts through comprehensive measures. This aims to achieve “prevention and treatment of existing diseases”, and promote the improvement of urban quality as well as the safe and orderly operation of the city. Urban physical examination is an important prerequisite and foundation for implementing urban renewal actions.
