Virus Vaccine First before visiting Vegas, Travelers say on Macquarie Survey
Coronavirus, Las Vegas.
Posted on 30 July 2020 by "T".
Las Vegas may have reopened most of its casino-hotels and other businesses, but travelers say they will highly likely not travel there until a coronavirus vaccine has been made available.
Even if Las Vegas started to reopen its doors in May after the shutdown of casinos and other entertainment destinations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the city will have a hard time convincing people to come as many are hesitant to visit until a working vaccine has been made.
A poll was conducted in June by Macquarie Research and Survey Monkey, asking 417 individuals over the age of 21 if they would visit Las Vegas without a vaccine. The result showed 65% of them said "no".
An analyst at Macquarie Research Chad Beynon said in a note, "There is no clear answer to when, or even if, we see a vaccine but 65% of 2019 visitation represents 28 [million] people."
The survey also asked if the respondents would feel comfortable booking a trip to Las Vegas. A good 40% said they wouldn't feel comfortable doing so until there's a vaccine present. On the other hand, 12% said it's okay for them to do that now, while an additional 30% said they'd consider booking a vacation to Vegas one to three months from now.
Beynon says around 50% of Las Vegas Strip properties have re-opened since shutting down in mid-March because of the pandemic. About two-thirds of the Las Vegas revenue last year came from non-gambling businesses such as restaurants and entertainment venues including night clubs, sporting events and concerts. He says, "People go there not necessarily to gamble but for other things."
Even though Las Vegas has had a tough time trying to get back to normal, the stock market says otherwise. For instance, the shares of MGM Resorts International, which has a big presence in Las Vegas with prime properties like the Bellagio, are up 80% since the market plummeted on March 23 (compared with about a 45% gain for the S&P 500).
The shares of Boyd Gaming, a regional casino operator that owned some properties in Las Vegas that are off the Strip, has skyrocketed more than 80% since March 23.
But of course, things are still far from being normal in Sin City.
Las Vegas Sands generates most of its revenue outside of Las Vegas, particularly in overseas markets such as Macau and Singapore. Its signature properties include The Venetian on the Strip. The company reported a second-quarter loss of $1.02 per share, down from a gain of 75 cents from last year. Second-quarter revenue reached $98 million, compared with $3.3 billion earned last year.
"I would be less than honest if I didn't tell you that Las Vegas is in a very difficult place," says Las Vegas Sands operating chief Robert Goldstein. He emphasized that Las Vegas relies on income generated from customers visiting the city by air, including convention and group businesses, "It's not a casino-driven market anymore. So we're struggling here."
Contrary to the difficulties that many Las Vegas casinos have faced, regional entities like Boyd have enjoyed better demand because customers usually drive to their venues to gamble.
Meanwhile, a smaller casino operator with a market capital of around $640 million named Monarch Casino & Resort, has reported a second-quarter loss of 24 cents a share, down from 50 cents a year ago. However, it reported that on the month of June when its Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno was open, their gambling revenue went up 12% year over year.
Most of the businesses in Las Vegas are about gambling, which is why having a coronavirus vaccine in place is so vital for that sector's full recovery.

| This material seems to be a globalist manipulation of Bill Gates and his friends. How can we get vaccinated? Must not make this mistake, because when many people accept the syringe, it will be directly with the implantation of criminal chips against Covid-19.|

| With the known exception, the people are not crazy and try to keep them alive! All the ¨´not believers¨ of the virus, or vaccine, or pandemic (but believes in a world´s conspiracy commanded by Bill Gates and George Soros, to dominate all the Nations and wash the people minds with the 5G), are being isolated by the rest of the thinking being. Maybe this stage of the Global History something like The Natural Selection Stage|

| It really is true what happens because this is easy to deduce, but you are one of the people who do not see these real dangers. I have seen enough and i know very well what garbage is George Soros and others like him. He was a financier of coup d'etat in my country (1989 ) & destroyed my country.|

| There might be a vaccine in the following months , but their might be one much later instead , meaning a year , two year ?? Who knows exactly when ?? And all this time ,those people who answered tht they'll wait for a vaccine to travel to Las Vegas , are they going to wait for so long ?? Also won't they go on vacations for the same time?? Are they going to stay ONLY home or within the bourders of their region or country ??Really ???|

| And which is the alternative antonis321? I don´t understand you, people are saying that they choose to be safe instead take the risk of died by go to play games in a shut space. That is crazy to you? I think that the people are making a point about his responsibilities to keep safe and don´t participate in the infection´s chain. The alternative is to take the risk of dying and make that two or three loved persons died by you...really?|

| maragatero everyday in our life we take risks , actually the slogan ''stay home stay safe '' is a little paradox , do you know how many accidents happen at home , how many can die from isolation at home , especially with many other people , especially in a small house ?? lol You are safe nowhere , lol . About this virus , if this virus didn't exist , others do exist , did in the past and will always exist in the future , we might be vanished from earth one day , viruses and cockroaches NEVER lol :d we will never be safe , even if they find a vaccine for this virus . Viruses , transmited illnesses , not sth new , people will always be dying from them . The health of many is worsen due to isolation , lack of athletic activities , not to mention the mental health as well , and no money as well in the wallets of many fired or unemployed people (because of the virus isolation measures)|
So going to a casino is so dangerous ??? Then impose an age limit for the people at the casinos or poker rooms , under 50 or under 60 , the oldest to stay home . With all these disinfection methods that they use nowadays at the casinos , or others that can be added to the existing ones so as to protect people more , real grave danger there is not imo . This virus can harm especially very old people and sick from illnesses or syndroms , these should always be carefull , now more , the rest can go and play , work , live their lives , with protections ofcourse , no doubt

| You are comparing tables with bluebirds antonis321. No matters what risk could you are referring, this case is one where you are going to be infected consciously. And more...you go to be infected knowing that is perfectly possible that you go to your house and infected your mother, father, wife or your loved human being. That not happen when you have a domestic accident or a car crash or any disaster that occur imperviously. Can you understand it?|

| These vaccines will also include nanotechnology, that is, microchips. This nano-micro-chips, which are planted in us in many ways (air, food, etc...) are far below people's ability to perceive them with our eyes. The planet is full of globalists. who want to train us directly, from the remote control ... Be smart.|

| yesterday news from america say that even in baseball they have lot of players with corona and they still didnt play any game,so this show that virus will stay and we will see what will happen when colder days come!I am sure that we will live with this virus,but people will not travel as much as they did,so las vegas will be in problems!|
| antonis321||02/08/2020 22:56:42 GMT|
| It's not comparing bluebirds and tables or whatever . It's not conspiracy theories , basically , it's facts . How dangerous is really this virus , how many actually die , what ages do they have , the cause of their deaths (preexisted severe illneses most of the cases) , the comparison with normal flue or other viruses or illnesses etc etc etc . I talk ablout exagerrations , not anything else |
Sb on another forum said some weeks ago , that he had already been in his home for 2 weeks WITH his family , without going outside AT ALL (!!!!) , and that he intended to stay for many weeks more , so as not to be infected , so that he can say proudly he hasn't killed anyone from his family by going outside and getting infected . You share the same point of view ??? I told him to buy thousands of canned food , also water , some food supplies that can last for months , ad stay IN for two years , lol , cause a virus crisis can last one or two years , lol what a crazy man
Try to see the whole picture , not only the infection , or only the news from TV . Try to think , why all these exagerrations do thappen , why do many controversial and dfferent ways are followed by countries to deal with this virus , more or less strict , more effective or less . If it was a grave danger for humans by this virus , the supreme totalitarian leader superpower of this world , the US , would have imposed to all other countries the complete lockdown and much more strict rules , not ask them or advice them , but order them (indirectly using the UN or whatever else )
. Now this situation , some days out , some days not , some people allowed out , some not , in some places wear masks , in others not , now we have these measures , later not and much later again we have the same measures , in some businesses or places wear masks in other no , people from 2-3 countries not allowed to come or allowed only if they had had examinations , the rest are welcomed , they open they close then they open again businesses , everyday they change their demands , the government imposes to workers not to go at work , now they lose their jobs some of them but governments don't feel they have the absolute responsibility for this mess , the responsibility to have these fired or unemployed under its protection until they find a new job , or find one job for them .... If any of these makes sense to you , what can I say .... Godd for you ???????

| Is funny to read all these questions, it seems that the problem is the isolation and the measures to fight against the disease, and not the COVID. I say to all the people who said that they are free to infect, that this is ok, is their right. But they have to solve the society matter, they could be free to go for the virus with all their freedom, but they has to go to an isle separate of all of the people who still trying to be careful, and when they drop in the infection they couldn´t use the society health resources|
| CALICUL||03/08/2020 07:07:33 GMT|
| My friend, you have seen latest events in Germany or other European countries? where people protest in streets against Covid lie? You really think that reality is not what i said? well, truth almost always triumphs and here it will be the same.|
| dule-vu||03/08/2020 10:51:32 GMT|
| today you have news how usa have more then 70000 new people with corona,so they will not allow that people come just to gamble in las vegas!in australia they blocked some areas,where people cant go from theirs homes or in some caces that only one person from home can go in stores!so its not easy for people!seems that some countries are lucky that they can have tourism,like my country!|

| Like in other countries, the people who claim are involved with the extreme right and the worst nationalism. And CALICUL I can remember a slogan of the May '68 rebellion in France: "Eat shit, millions of flies can't be wrong". As I said, you are free to infect, go to get the virus with total freedom, is your right. But go far away, without any possibility of spread anybody who try to be careful, and without using the society health resource. If you can guarantee that, you may be free|

| These vaccines will cause street fights with the police, because you don't understand that every vaccine will have a chip in it, that is activated from remote control... Your life will end when those who created these things want it.|
| maragatero||05/08/2020 01:06:22 GMT|
| Dear friend, if that technology exists and those intentions were real and have the powerising representatives you say, don't you think it's too truculent to imagine this devilish plot to implant chips? It wouldn't be easier to inoculate them in the water or in the air, or in a lot of usual things of popular use. Any measure and strategy would be more simple and effective than all that you propose..|

| Help me to understand something bizarre: How Bill Gates arrives in a great man of medicine? Do you really think that me i can trust in these ugly lies? This person is man of the New World Order? He is a dangerous element who must end up in prison.|

| Soon we will see everything,autumn will come fast and maybe they will make again restrictions like australia do now in some parts of country!for example,if they will allow fans on football stadiums,then we will see that thing are better,but if not,then thing will be worse!|
| antonis321||05/08/2020 19:39:56 GMT|
| It is stupid to wait for the vaccine , so as to keep on living normally , like before this coronavirus appears . ofcourse there are dangers , but they are over exaggerated , they concern specific ages above all and very ill people . In my country we had lockdown , we have even now restrictions , or someold restrictions that ceized temporarily , now they are back , although the number of infected is not high . With disinfection methods , the most necessary only , we can go on living , businesses to open , tourists to visit other countries , become normal again |
| CALICUL||07/08/2020 09:11:57 GMT|
| I'm curious. How many will use a vaccine with a 3% mortality rate to defend themselves against a virus with a 0.6% mortality rate? Are we really crazy and can no longer judge logically? I will not do such a thing and if it will be mandatory will be many wars.|
| dule-vu||08/08/2020 10:29:08 GMT|
| in my country tourism is on almost same level as it was last year,especially august and people from lot of countries come with cars,especially from germany!I was also few days on see,everything is normal,people love to come!but in other countries there are still big problems and who know when they will allow people from all countries to come!|
| CALICUL||09/08/2020 10:18:06 GMT|
| I see here more people who trust in this vaccine. Do you really let yourself be manipulated so much? Is Bill Gates an Honorary Doctor and i don't know that? How can we accept such a thing? when in fact they are enemies of humanity ...|
