TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Fireworks boomed as visitors at Shanghai Disneyland waited for COVID-19 test results, surrounded by health care workers dressed from head to toe in white protective suits. The theme park suddenly locked down late Sunday after learning a recent visitor from another province had tested positive. Park officials say it will remain shut Monday and Tuesday and they’re cooperating with an epidemiological investigation. The park’s response underscores just how serious China is about enforcing its zero-tolerance pandemic prevention strategy. Globally, many countries have turned to living with the virus. But China has kept its borders sealed and moved quickly to cut the chain of transmission. Shanghai said all 33,863 people it tested because they’d visited the park were negative.
