Hong Kong Disney Park to be closed for the fifth time due to increase in COVID-19 cases

According to Deadline, Disneyland Honk Kong will close again.

The decision was made by local and health authorities due to the increase in COVID-19 cases, mainly due to the resurgence of the Ômicron variant (which premeditated another wave of the disease around the world).

Reports indicate that theme parks, flights and other travel and recreation services will be disrupted to prevent the rapid spread of the virus. The closures will take place between January 7 and 20 – the two weeks recommended by health experts for isolation and / or quarantine strategies to be effective.

This is the fifth time that Disneyland in Hong Kong has closed since the start of the pandemic in the region (late 2019 / early 2020).

In the region, the first case of the Ômicron variant was confirmed on December 31, 2021, forcing authorities to grant immediate changes to curb the disease – in a campaign called COVID Zero.

Flights have also been suspended to eight international countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom. In China, two cities also imposed the lockdown for the same week, after cases of COVID-19 started to rise.
