As a major public health emergency, the new crown epidemic poses a serious challenge to the order and security of social life, and could easily lead to secondary disasters such as social security emergencies. The normalisation of epidemic prevention and control poses challenges to economic security, political ecology and social security, which in turn raises the risk of economic security incidents, mass incidents and major criminal activities arising. The law does not pay enough attention to social security emergencies, the legal mechanisms for emergency response are incomplete and there is insufficient disclosure of information. It is necessary to strengthen the rule of law response to social security emergencies in the context of the normalisation of epidemic prevention and control by improving legislation, sound legal mechanisms for emergency response, and improving information technology for social security.
