A joint working group composed of the emergency management department and the Ministry of housing and urban rural development arrived at the scene of the accident overnight to give full guidance to local rescue work.
The meeting pointed out that the accident occurred in the critical period of fighting the epidemic situation and returning to work. The hotel was also a medical isolation observation point designated by the local government, which had a serious nature and bad impact.
The governor of Chang'an Street noted that the investigation team needs to conduct a comprehensive investigation in the following aspects, including——
Focus on the illegal construction and illegal transformation, find out the illegal operation of Xinjia Hotel and why it was selected as a medical isolation observation point, and find out the dereliction of duty and dereliction of duty of relevant departments;
Conduct professional technical appraisal scientifically and carefully, accurately identify the nature and responsibility of the accident, and be responsible in accordance with laws and regulations.

Yu Weiguo, Secretary of Fujian provincial Party committee, and Tang Dengjie, governor of Fujian Province, said at the meeting that the accident caused heavy casualties, had a bad impact and had profound lessons. The Fujian provincial Party committee and the provincial government will actively and fully cooperate with the accident investigation team of the State Council to thoroughly investigate the causes and responsibilities of the accident, resolutely pursue the responsibilities and punish the people in accordance with the laws and regulations, and give the people a responsible account.

The supervision of relevant local functional departments is not in place, "fight against non-compliance" is a mere formality, which leads to the failure of security checkpoints at all levels and ultimately leads to tragic accidents.
