Fifteen officials in Nanjing, East China’s Jiangsu Province, faced disciplinary action on Saturday for neglect of duties amid a resurgence in COVID-19 cases imported from Nanjing Lukou International Airport, authorities announced.
Among the officials being punished, Fang Zhongyou, head of the health commission of Nanjing, was removed from his position. Vice Mayor Hu Wanjin was given an administrative demerit.
The investigation is still open, as authorities are working to look into other people involved in the matter.
