Feng Zhiqiang 

Feng Zhiqiang, Deputy Director of Gaocheng District in Shijiazhuang, Hebei Province in north China, was given a disciplinary warning for lack of oversight in terms of arranging and supervising the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) prevention and control measures. 

The city’s top anti-corruption authority announced on January 6 that three officials in the district had received punishment for negligence in the epidemic intervention. They failed to prevent further transmission of the virus after a resident tested positive. 

Feng was held responsible after one Liujiazuo village resident went out to see a doctor after testing positive on January 3. 

The district was designated a high-risk area for virus infection on January 6 after it had reported locally transmitted cases for four consecutive days.
