Two senior officials of Eastern Airports, a State-owned company that oversees the Nanjing Lukou International Airport — where the latest outbreak of COVID-19 started — have been held by discipline inspection authorities over serious violations of Party discipline and laws, the provincial anti-graft body announced Tuesday evening.

Feng Jun, the company's Party secretary and chairman of the board, and Xu Yong, the company's deputy secretary and general manager, were investigated after a group of cabin cleaners at the airport on July 20 tested positive for COVID-19. On July 23, Feng was suspended from his duties.

The cabin cleaners were later found to be infected with the virus while cleaning an airplane. They failed to follow sanitation and change-of-clothing protocols, which resulted in the virus being transmitted to other staff and passengers at the airport.
