Coronavirus Spurs Mcdonaldís, Starbucks To Close Some China Locations

Posted: Jan 27, 2020

All of McDonald’s restaurants in the cities of Wuhan, Ezhou, Huanggang, Qianjiang and Xiantao closed as of Jan. 24

Bloomberg—McDonald’s Corp. has temporarily closed locations across five cities of China’s Hubei province while Starbucks Corp. also shut some cafes in the country, due to a rapidly spreading lung virus.

All of McDonald’s restaurants in the cities of Wuhan, Ezhou, Huanggang, Qianjiang and Xiantao closed as of Jan. 24, the Chicago-based company said in a statement. The locations correspond with areas where public transportation has been suspended. The company didn’t specify the number of locations that have been closed. McDonald’s had about 3,000 stores in China at the end of 2018.

Starbucks Corp. on Friday said it had also closed some locations in China due to the spread of coronavirus and that it was working with local health authorities to ensure the wellbeing of its employees and customers. The Seattle-based chain has about 4,125 cafes there.

Businesses are responding as China takes unprecedented steps to contain the outbreak of the virus, including travel restrictions for 40 million people on the eve of the Lunar New Year—one of the busiest travel times. The coronavirus has been reported in 32 of 34 provinces and a second U.S. case was confirmed on Friday. French Health Minister Agnes Buzyn has declared two confirmed cases of coronavirus in the country.
