RIP: Mr Yang Jun (杨军) – Beijing’s First SARS Fatality! (27.1.2020)

The first case of death caused by the new outnreak of the SARS virus in Beijing was Yang Jun - the former Vice President of Trina Solar - and the Executive President of China Commercial Value Group. He also worked at Shanghai Electric Power Station engineering design company during his lifetime. He went on a business trip in Wuhan and then travelled to Shanghai on the 13th. However, after arriving in Beijing on the 15th, he developed symptoms associated with a fever. He went to the hospital on the 21st, and was confirmed as having contracted SARS on the 22nd. His condition worsened yesterday (27.1,2020) despite receiving the best medical care available, and he died due to respiratory failure.

Mr Yang Jun was only 50 years old and usually in very good health. Judging from his situation, he did not seek immediate medical treatment when first experiencing fever symptoms on the 15th. He only visited the hospital after suffering 6 days of illness, when he should have contacted a doctor straughtaway. If he had done this, he would be alive today. This situation is highly unfortunate, as the deceased Mr Yang Jun is parent of a child attending junior high school, affiliated to the National People's Congress. On the 20th, he attended the parents' high school affiliated meeting. He was treated on the 21st and died on the 27th. His daughter was diagnosed with SARS and went to school until the 17th. Please be advised that parents and children should not 'touch' one another during this time of infection. Use your common sense. Do not infect teachers. The teachers and students associated with the People's Congress will be isolated and carefully monitored for the foreseeable future.
