Change in frontline commanders sign defense has turned to attack

CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2020-02-14 00:00

Having seemingly successfully contained the novel coronavirus epidemic in Hubei province, the Communist Party of China Central Committee demonstrated its firm intent to bring the epidemic to an end in the province by changing the leaders on the front line of the fight against the virus on Thursday.

The Party chiefs of Hubei province and its capital Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, were replaced respectively by the Shanghai mayor and the Party chief of Jinan, Shandong province.

With the full support of the central leading team, the new frontline commanders, together with some newly appointed officials to head the local disease control and prevention systems, have been entrusted with the urgent mission of getting to grips with the situation in the hardest-hit region.
