Shanghai authorities are going to maintain extremely high levels of security during the Expo 2010 Shanghai, China.
The mega event is estimated to attract 70 million people during its six-month run from May 1 to October 31, 2010.
Visitors should expect at least two rounds of security checks before they can enter the site, local police officials have announced. The first barriers, located around a 4.5-square-kilometre area in the Expo zone, will subject random visitors to spot checks. The second barriers, around a 3.28-square-kilometre area, will be more thorough. Every ticket holder can expect to be looked at.
Even with those security precautions, officials are optimistic that they will be able to admit about 200,000 people per hour.
