Shanghai Disney Shuts To Prevent Spread Of Virus

Walt Disney Co’s Shanghai Disney Resort will be closed from Saturday.

The closure is designed to help prevent the spread of a flu-like virus that broke out in the Chinese city Wuhan.

According to Reuters, the virus has killed 25 people to date and infected more than 800.

China is on a seven-day Lunar New Year holiday starting Friday.

During the holiday week, hundreds of millions of Chinese travel home and abroad, often spending time at Disney.

Many businesses including retailers, airlines, travel agencies and hotel operators are on high alert.

Health authorities fear the infection rate could accelerate over the Lunar New Year with increased holiday travel.
