At about 10:20 am on March 23, a staff member responsible for information registration and temperature measurement at the epidemic prevention point in the Zhoudian Agricultural Product Market in Daiyue District, Tai’an City, Shandong Province was beaten to death because he stopped a man that attempted to break through the barrier.
“After the patient arrived at the hospital, he was already unconscious and had no heartbeat or breathing. We urgently carried out a series of rescues such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, but there was no response. The clinical decision was death. The specific cause required forensic evaluation.” Wu Xinkuan, a doctor on duty in the emergency room of Second Affiliated Hospital of Shandong First Medical University, told reporters.

On the morning of the 23rd, Li Canliang was carrying out information registration, temperature detection, and other epidemic prevention and control work at the market epidemic prevention and control spot.
“At about 10:20 in the morning, the car was not allowed to enter, however, a car was parked at the exit to enter, later, a man came out of the market and wanted the car to break in. Li Canliang explained the situation, then the man was scolding and grinning, and then hitting, made a lot of punches to Li. Li Canliang fell on the side of the road and couldn’t move, his face became purple and urinary incontinence occurred.” Said Wang Yucui, who was the staff on duty with Li Canliang at that time.
