The major epidemic is a social and public health crisis, and it is a "people's war, general war, and blockade."Epidemic crisis of governance needs every citizen to assume civic responsibilities. Responsibility for citizens is an important basis for victory in the "People's War" against the epidemic. Due to the urgency and particularity of epidemic management, the responsibilities of citizens under major epidemic management are usually expanded or deepened in terms of content and commitment requirements. On the path of realizing civil responsibility in the management of major epidemic crisis, we can start with government leadership, ideological and political education, and media propaganda.
