Shanghai Disneyland Shuts Down With More Than 30K People Inside After One Person Tests Positive For COVID

Seems like the Shanghai health authorities were not playing on Sunday evening after one person tested positive while inside the city’s Disneyland park.

According to NPR, the city suddenly closed Shanghai Disneyland with more than 30,000 people inside after a woman who visited the park on Saturday later tested positive for the coronavirus. The city also shut town the metro station that services the park, and all visitors were given COVID tests.

Shanghai announced on Monday that all 33,863  Disneyland guests who were tested over the weekend came back negative, and authorities say they will have to be tested again before they are allowed to leave the park. According to the Associated Press, the park will remain closed on Monday and Tuesday to ensure proper preventative measures are taken.

Many visitors are still waiting for the results of their second COVID test to be released from the park, and officials have promised refunds or exchanges to any guests impacted by the park’s closing.

“We will notify guests as soon as we have a confirmed date to reopen operations,” Shanghai Disney Resort said on its website. “Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!”

The sudden shutdown of Shanghai Disneyland aligns with China’s efforts to prevent COVID-19 from spreading. The country’s response to the spread of COVID has been its strict citywide lockdowns, quarantine mandates, and other public health measures to stop the spread of the virus as quickly as possible.

Russia Cuts Off Gas Supplies To Bulgaria And Poland

The Russian energy giant Gazprom says it has cut off all gas deliveries to both Bulgaria and Poland after both countries refused to start paying for the supplies in roubles.

Earlier, both Polish and Bulgarian energy providers said they had received official notices from the Russian gas supplier that deliveries were due to be cut.

Gazprom’s announcement comes after some confusion earlier this morning, when data showed gas supplies into Poland through Belarus temporarily reduced to zero before resuming.

New Omicron Variant BA.2 Is Now The Leading Version Of COVID-19 And Considered “Highly Contagious”

JUST IN: Ghana Records Two New Cases Of Omicron COVID-19 Variant

 

BA.2, the new Omicron variant that led to a surge of new COVID-19 cases in Europe, has now overtaken the U.S. as the most dominant version of the virus throughout the country. This latest data estimate is from a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, whose director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, predicted that BA.2 would quickly become dominate in the U.S

The first case of the BA.2 was initially identified in the U.S. back in December. Meanwhile, scientists have been closely watching BA.2—which is now the third of the genetically distinct varieties of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

The rapid growth of BA.2 is due partially to its eight gene mutations that spike protein on the virus’s surface, something that is not found in the previous strain, BA.1.

Although BA.2 is more transmissible than BA.1, as of now there are no signs that it causes more severe illness and it’s shown that vaccines continue to protect against the worst outcomes.
