Zhangjiajie in Hunan Province has become another key point of resurgence of the COVID-19 epidemic spreading across China following spillover cases from Nanjing in East China's Jiangsu Province to the city.
 

Beijing reported two new confirmed infections on Thursday noon, who were found to have traveled to Zhangjiajie.
 

Besides Beijing, several cities across the nation including Chengdu in Southwest China's Sichuan Province, Dalian in Northeast China's Liaoning Province, Changde in Hunan, Huaian in East China's Jiangsu Province, and Yubei district in Chongqing Municipality have all reported confirmed infections who have never been to Nanjing but have been to Zhangjiajie or had close contact with people who had been to Zhangjiajie and tested positive for COVID-19.
 

As of Thursday, the number of Zhangjiajie-related infections across China has amounted to at least 18.
 

A careful combing over the cases found that a performance with an attendance of over 2,000 people held at Charming Xiangxi, a theater located in Wulingyuan Scenic Area in Zhangjiajie between 6 pm and 7 pm on July 22, was the source of the second round of transmission.
 

According to media reports, over 2,000 people watched the performance that night with no space in between the audience members while sitting next to each other. Although the audience were required to wear masks when they entered the theater, staffers could not ensure all audience members wore their masks during the entire performance.
 

继南京后张家界成为第二大感染源地
张家界一场演出,2000观众成为高风险

南京疫情持续,根据官方通报的数据,从7月20日至29日零时,南京本地确诊人数已超170人,疫情外溢至15省26市。其中,从张家界景区蔓延开来的南京关联疫情已传播到四省七市。
 

曾有8人在张家界同一剧场观看演出,分别在7月22日和7月24日,仅间隔两天。并且对比大连7月27日确诊病例、3名无症状感染者的行踪轨迹,发现在张家界森林公园、天门山等景点存在地点重合。目前,张家界确诊1例本土病例,将关停所有人员聚集密闭场所。
 

“当晚大概有2000多名观众,大家没有间隔一个座位,都是挨着坐的。”张家界魅力湘西工作人员讲,进剧场是要求大家佩戴口罩的,但无法保证游客全程佩戴口罩。
