A Shanghai nursing home resident was mistaken as dead, placed in a body bag, and taken to a morgue. A video widely circulated on Chinese social media shows the incident.
Five officials, including the director of the nursing home and a doctor, have been punished for the mistake.
The elderly patient is said to be in stable condition at a local hospital in China’s Putuo district hospital, where he is being treated for his injuries. The incident occurred in Shanghai, where millions of residents were still under strict coronavirus-related lockdown orders on Tuesday morning
