Hengdian World Studios Resumes Operations

Earlier last month, Hengdian World Studios issued a statement that they would be stopping all work due to the coronavirus outbreak. Many dramas were affected including Yang Mi (杨幂) and Bai Yu’s (白宇) Thank you Doctor <谢谢你医生>, Zanilia Zhao (趙麗穎) and Wang Yibo’s (王一博) Legend of Fei <有翡>, and Qin Nan (秦嵐) and Wu Jinyan’s (吴谨言) Legacy <传家>. The studios has now resumed partial operations since February 13.

In order to be eligible to return to work, production studios would have to go through an application process. Crews will be allowed to resume filming as long as workers were in Hengdian during the week of Chinese New Year and have not traveled or been in contact with anyone in areas with high infection rates.

The crews will need to ensure that hygiene and sanitization rules are followed. Teams that meet these requirements will be given priority to return to work. If the workers have traveled from other areas, they will be required to self quarantine at home for two weeks before being allowed to return.

The second stage of the return to work will be in accordance to the progress of the spread and control of the virus. The third and final stage will be when the restrictions due to the virus have been lifted.

After the announcement was made, many filming crews have eagerly submitted their applications to return to work but there is a long list. This is due to the amount of approvals the application would need to receive from different levels of government. It is rumored that Zanilia Zhao’s filming team was the first to receive approval to resume filming on February 14.  Andy Yang (杨紫) and Kris Wu’s (吴亦凡) The Golden Hairpin <青簪行> is also still waiting for approval.

      China is doing a much better job of containing the virus than any other country in the west especially when you carefully examine the stats of how the US handled the 2009 H1N1 outbreak. Good job, China.

        You do know that China is only doing well in containing the virus because they have the power of ordering people to stay at home and punish anyone who remotely breaks any laws. I doubt a Western country would have any power other than the recommendation of what to do in an outbreak…

          “You do know that China is only doing well in containing the virus because they have the power of ordering people to stay at home”

          That’s great! The people and governments of the west should take notes.

          “…and punish anyone who remotely breaks any laws.”

          The word ‘punish’ is a bit severe to describe the repercussions. Chinese people have developed a masterful skill of public shaming.

          “I doubt a Western country would have any power other than the recommendation of what to do in an outbreak…”

          The west would just roll-over and die. That’s what happened in the 2009 H1N1 virus outbreak. Nearly 300,000 people died (reference link above).

          There were no xenophobic, racist, discriminatory, travel bans against Americans during the 2009 H1N1 virus outbreak. None. Yet, plenty against Chinese and China in 2020 with less than 2000 deaths in the first few months. In comparison, 18,449 died in the first year of the H1N1 outbreak.
