Macau: Casinos partially re-open as COVID outbreak eases

Macao, Special Administrative Region of China, Macau
July 23, 2022 at 20:14 GMT +00:00 · Published

Macau casinos reopened on Saturday after 12 days of shutdown caused by the COVID-19 outbreak since mid-June.

Footage shows the casino district resumed operation, and residents flock to the streets and markets after all non-essential industrial and commercial venues were shut during the 'static management' in the city.

"There were zero Covid-19 cases registered in the past 24 hours, people are getting relieved. We have been staying indoors all the time. It's not well ventilated indoors. And it’s not good for physical and mental health. It’s better to allow people to have a walk outdoors," Ms Wat, one of the locals, said.

Residents have also been told to stay home unless they have to go out for work, shopping, or other emergency reasons.

Casinos and businesses can resume operation on a limited scale as long as they comply with anti-infection measures during the 'consolidation period', which will last until 30 July.
