Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao says the relief efforts in Zhouqu county have shifted from rescue work to helping survivors get lives back in order.

Wen made the remarks while paying another visit to mudslide-hit Zhouqu county. He said the most pressing task was to help the survivors get on with their lives. Enough food, clothing, medical care and shelters should be guaranteed for local residents.

Preparations for the freezing winter also need to be considered. He also ordered measures to be carried out to ensure no epidemics break out, and school resumes in early September. The Chinese Premier urged close surveillance around the barrier lakes and geologically unstable areas. He also stressed that reconstruction would be the priority for Zhouqu now and for a period of time.
