Though the extended date for office closures
is coming to an end soon, Shanghai still isn’t out of the woods quite yet with regards to the novel coronavirus outbreak. The city is bumping up safety measures a little more as chunyun
travellers make their way back to Shanghai.
and the Shanghai Municipal Government
announced that the city’s implementing additional preventative measures during this time, including increased disinfection and sanitation on railways, airports and other modes of public transportation.
