The Chinese city of Shenzen closes businesses, cinemas and gyms for three days after the appearance of COVID-19 cases

June 27. (EUROPA PRESS) –

Shenzhen, the manufacturing powerhouse in southern China, closed wholesale markets, cinemas and gyms in a central district bordering Hong Kong for three days on Sunday to prevent further spread of COVID-19.

Wholesale markets, cinemas and public places in Futian district will be closed until at least Monday. Likewise, some bus and subway lines have been suspended, and the deadline for the mandatory negative report of the coronavirus test has been reduced to 24 hours, as reported by the ‘South China Morning Post’.

The Shenzhen municipal health commission has assured that all bars and parks would be closed in the Futian district, and that public events would be suspended, after almost a dozen local cases were detected during Friday and Saturday.


Shenzhen reported nine local cases, five of which had symptoms, on Friday and four asymptomatic local cases on Saturday. All the cases were detected in Futian district except for one in Luohu district on Saturday.

China maintains a policy of ‘zero cases’, claimed by its president, Xi Jinping, after the country has recorded its worst data of the entire pandemic in recent months. This system goes through applying harsh measures in the face of the slightest doubt of uncontrolled contagion, regardless of the social and economic cost that it entails.
