Man jailed for attacking anti-virus worker

A MAN who attacked a community pandemic-prevention worker was sentenced to eight months in jail, the Xuhui District procuratorate said yesterday.

In April, the man, surnamed Qi, went outside his residential complex with a friend, surnamed Fan, to mail a package.

When they returned to the complex, a pandemic-prevention worker surnamed Xue asked them for their health QR codes and identification according to the community’s regulations. Qi refused to show his documents, and instead swore at Xue and attempted to strike him, according to the court.

Watching this incident, another frontline worker named Song told the complex’s security guard to stop Qi and Fan and ask again for their certificates.

When Qi went back home to get his identification, he also brought back a one-meter-long stick. Qi used this stick to hit Song, according to the court. Song was also knocked to the ground during the attack.

Doctors said Song suffered slight injuries.

Since the novel coronavirus outbreak, several frontline workers have been attacked in similar incidents.
