Tourist attractions have been temporarily closed since Tuesday due to the latest outbreak of COVID-19 in the city. And we are talking about only 20 local confirmed cases and 158 asymptomatic carriers for a whole multi-million city. We add that Disneyland announced the closure just four days after the resumption of work on November 25th. Oriental Pearl was closed to the public the day before and “until further notice”. Also, by the way, Shanghai has tightened testing requirements for restaurants and other commercial establishments. All their visitors must present a 48-hour negative test result.
