After one guest tested positive for COVID, Shanghai Disneyland closes, locking more than 30000 visitors inside

Following the positive test of one visitor, China has locked 33863 guests inside the Shanghai Disneyland park. After one customer was found to be positive for COVID, every visitor was obliged to take the test on Sunday. The park was then closed for two days “to cooperate with the pandemic investigation in other provinces and cities,” according to park officials. With this, China’s government wants to demonstrate how serious it is about executing its pandemic-prevention zero-tolerance policy.

What happened?

The one person who tested positive is from Hangzhou, a nearby city. According to local media, the man visited Disneyland on Saturday, and Shanghai Disneyland announced on Sunday evening that they were no longer accepting visitors. Soon after, the park’s gates were locked, and city healthcare workers and police rushed to the scene to conduct a mass testing.

On Sunday night, the testing process lasted several hours, and thousands of visitors were stranded in the park. They waited for their number to be called and receive a negative test result so they could leave the park. While the fireworks continued to explode, the visitors awaited the results of their tests.

Those whose results were negative will be asked to retest within the next 14 days. The Chinese government has implemented stringent measures to contain the virus in the country.
