The two posts will be both shouldered by Wang Hesheng, who was announced to be appointed on Saturday as standing committee member of the CPC Hubei Provincial Committee in a move to bolster the front-line efforts to combat the ongoing novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak in the province.

Wang was vice-minister of the National Health Commission before his transfer to Hubei.

According to the website of the commission, Wang heads healthcare reform and medical administration of the country's top health authority. He has been the deputy head of the authority since 2016.
