Disneyland closes in Shanghai to try and stop Coronavirus spread

The move was decided "in response to the prevention and control of the disease outbreak and in order to ensure the health and safety" of its guests and staff, Shanghai Disney Resort said on its website.

The city of 11 million people, and neighbouring Huanggang, a city of seven million, were in virtual lockdown. China is in the midst of its Lunar New Year holiday, a typically joyous time of family gatherings and public festivities.
