Shanghai Disneyland closes again over China COVID restrictions
Protests erupt across China over Xi Jinping’s ‘zero COVID’ policy
The Wall Street Journal’s Lingling Wei evaluates the effectiveness of Xi Jinping’s COVID-19 lockdowns on ‘The Evening Edit.’
Shanghai Disneyland is temporarily shutting down operations for a third time this year due to China's COVID restrictions.
Starting Tuesday, Shanghai Disney Resort, located in China’s most populous city, announced on its website that the theme park will temporarily close "in order to follow the requirement of pandemic prevention and control."
On Monday, China's National Health Commission reported a record 40,327 cases, which includes symptomatic and asymptomatic infections.
While other countries are easing anti-virus measures, China has stuck to a severe "Zero COVID" strategy that aims to isolate every case. However, China's leader Xi Jinping is facing a wave of protests, including in the streets of Shanghai and Beijing, criticizing his strict coronavirus strategy that will soon enter its fourth year.
