          Objective To analyze the endemic situation of schistosomiasis in Mianyang ensued from the blocking of transmission of schistosomiasis, we provide evidence for the development of control strategies.

          Results Schistosomiasis is prevalent in 359 villages of 56 towns under the administrative 6 counties and districts of Mianyang city. Areas with oncomelania snails were 2 102.58 hm 2 in history. The number of infected people and infected cattle in history was 96 078 and 28 701 respectively. Mianyang city has reached the national standard of schistosomiasis transmission blocking in 2015. Blood tests were carried out in 678 776 person-times, and revealed positive results 11 919 person-times from 2016 to 2019. The annual positive rate ranged from 1.01%-2.29%. Total 11 919 person-times received fecalexamination and no positive result. There was no acute schistosomiasis patient and new found advanced schistosomiasis cases in consecutive 4 years. There were 49 cases of advanced schistosomiasis alive. The total number of 25 068 cattle-times were carried out blood tests from 2016 to 2019, in which 278 are positive. The annual positive rate ranged from 0.22%-2.23%.825 cattle-times received fecal examination and no positive results. General survey covered an area of 16 469.2 hm 2 throughout Mianyang, snails were found in 105.14-146.98 hm 2 from 2016 to 2019. No infectious snails were detected. Oncomelania hupensis still existed in an area of 437.76 hm 2 bythe end of 2019, distributed in 240 villages of 52 towns under the administrative 6 counties and districts.
