    Covid-19: China punishes 30 officials for pandemic failing - Times of India
    BEIJING: More than 30 Chinese officials have been fired or sentenced for failing to respond properly to the country’s recent coronavirus outbreak.
    Among those fired were a deputy mayor, heads of city districts and health committees, and staff at hospitals, airports and tourism departments.
    The National Health Commission of China announced on Monday that 94 new cases of domestic transmission had been recorded in the previous 24 hours.
    The latest outbreak is linked to the airport in the eastern city of Nanjing. The highly contagious delta variant spread among airport workers and has since spread from the tropical province of Hainan in the south to Inner Mongolia in the north.
    The epidemic caused new travel restrictions, community blockades and the closure of the entire city of Zhangjiajie, with a population of 1.5 million.
