Feng is being investigated by Jiangsu's provincial Communist Party of China (CPC) commission for discipline inspection and the provincial supervisory commission after a COVID-19 outbreak at the airport resulted in the spread of the virus to other parts of China.

A new cluster of infections began to emerge on July 20 when a few cleaners at the Nanjing Lukou International Airport tested positive during routine testing. As of Monday, Nanjing, Jiangsu's provincial capital, had reported 233 locally transmitted confirmed cases of COVID-19.
