Life Disneyland Shanghai must close its doors due to corona virus By weekster Posted on January 27, 2020 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Disneyland Shanghai closes its gates indefinitely on Saturday as a measure against the spread of the corona virus. The municipality is closing the amusement park during one of the busiest times of the year. Saturday is the Chinese new year. A year ago, the amusement park had to stop admitting visitors when it became overcrowded. In addition to the Disneyland Shanghai, the amusement park in the east of the metropolis also includes a park and hotels. The € 5 billion project opened its doors in 2016. Drastic measures are being taken throughout China to prevent the virus from spreading, especially in and around the city of Wuhan. It is estimated that more than 30 million Chinese people are restricted in their freedom of movement shortly before the holiday due to measures to prevent the spread of the virus. A number of places are cut off from the outside world as much as possible.
