A barbershop in China has announced that it will be closing its doors as a result of a health outbreak in the country.
The Shanghai Evening News reports that the Shanghai Barber Shop in Wuhan has closed down due “to an acute health crisis” that began on August 13.
It has not revealed the number of patients affected by the outbreak.
The shop has been operating for several years and has been lauded for its quality of its products.
The paper reports that a recent health test revealed that the barbers had high levels of bacteria and the barber chair was infected with MRSA, which is a type of bacteria resistant to antibiotics.
The health scare comes after several barber shops in the US and Europe were forced to close following the coronavirus outbreak in October.
