China Orders Re-Closing Of All Cinemas in the Country

China has ordered the closure of all theaters nationwide to fight a possible coronavirus resurgence in the country.

The government has ordered the closure of all cinemas without indicating a reopening date. The news began to circulate on the Weibo social network. Over 500 cinemas in the country had been reopened this weekend alone, having been closed since late January.

The 500 cinemas represented only 4.5% of the country’s cinemas but gave hope for a return to normal.

The city of Shanghai was set to re-open a further 205 cinemas on Saturday.

The spread of the virus seemed to have stopped at least, but the recent statement by Chinese premier Li Keqiang that required more transparency from local officials so that they would not hide other cases of coronavirus, and yesterday’s closure of borders to foreigners paint a more uncertain picture.

China, and Wuhan in particular, have been the epicenter of the coronavirus epidemic that has so far infected more than 500,000 people worldwide, killing nearly 27,000.
