Hong Kong Disneyland Coronavirus shutdown!
Disney Issued A Statement Announcing:
“As required by the government and health authorities in line with prevention efforts taking place across Hong Kong, Hong Kong Disneyland park will temporarily close from 15 July.”
Less than 1 month after its reopening, Hong Kong Disneyland, will be closing its gates once again, today. This is because of a Coronavirus outbreak in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong has a populace of 7.5 million and there were 52 New Coronavirus cases reported.
At the close of January 2020, when the Coronavirus pandemic started to spread all over Asia, Hong Kong Disneyland closed. Then as the number of Novel Coronavirus cases in Hong Kong were low, the theme park reopened on June 18, 2020.
“Hong Kong Disneyland is temporarily closing its doors due to a spike in coronavirus cases within the city. As of Monday, Hong Kong has seen 1,469 infections and seven reported deaths.”
Disney further added:
“The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort hotels will remain open with adjusted levels of services. They have put in place enhanced health and safety measures that reflect the guidance of health and government authorities, such as social distancing measures and increased cleaning and sanitization.”
Josh D’Amaro, the new Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, states:
“We are in a new normal. The world is a different place, but we feel really prepared to operate in this new environment.”
Hong Kong Disneyland is closing because of a spike in the number of Coronavirus cases in Hong Kong. Yet Disney opened a couple of its parks in Florida — the place which has seen a huge spike in the number of Coronavirus disease cases in recent weeks – reporting around 4,410 deaths and about 291,650 cases.
Does it make any sense what Disney is doing?
This Tweet from veronicaKPIX says it all:
“Hong Kong has more than 1,500 cases & 8 deaths. Sees a spike of 52 cases & shuts down HK Disneyland. Florida has 292,000 cases and almost 5,000 deaths. Sees a spike of 15,300 cases & reopens DisneyWorld.”
