Latest Covid Outbreak threatens Macau casinos

Tags: China, coronavirus, Macau.
Posted on 20 June 2022 by "T".

Analysts expect that the GGR in Macau casinos would be badly affected, after a fresh outbreak of COVID-19 was recorded last week.

Authorities have introduced "a state of immediate prevention", but it has fallen short of temporary closure of the casinos. According to GGR Asia, a total of 31 confirmed cases were noted last week, and the numbers are expected to continue to rise this week.

The six casino operators in Macau are once again bracing themselves for the possibility of several weeks of close-to-zero income.

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Macau went up to 36 by the time a Monday afternoon briefing was held, in the city's first outbreak since October.

As of 3:30pm on Monday, Macau had eight "red" lockdown zones (indicating either the residence or workplace of confirmed cases) and five "yellow" zones (this means precautionary measures were needed).

This signifies that the estimate on Macau casino gross gaming revenue (GGR) for June would be reduced to just 9% of that for the pre-pandemic trading period of June 2019. It would mean an average daily rate of GGR for June would be down 31% from what was achieved in May this year.

Again we will have problems in next months!
 shokaku04/07/2022 20:19:17 GMT
Most likely. I expect a return to mask mandates and closings of non essential businesses in the fall of this year, if not earlier. At least in my country. And this pattern will continue untill people are so mad at the policies, that things will get realy ugly.
 dule-vu04/07/2022 20:59:54 GMT
Yeah,in lot of countries they already talk about it!
 geseco1205/07/2022 21:27:32 GMT
the government of our country has decreed again to start using masks and to avoid meetings where there are many people, now I think that the fourth wave is coming and we must be protected, a pity that we have to go back to it again, things are getting very ugly for this year.

world revolution my friend, this is the solution. New World Order makes fun of humanity because it wants to diminish us. 7 billion people are too many and they want to reduce the number by 2030 to one billion.
 shokaku06/07/2022 05:42:52 GMT
Did anyone tell the Chinese and Indians of this plan? Each of those nations alone has a population in excess of one billion. And Covid doesn't have the leathality of say the "black death" in the middle ages,that wiped out up to half of the population.

in last months people dont care much about covid and this kind of things,they care about fuel and war in ukraine!
 subsonic06/07/2022 14:04:19 GMT
I totally agree with what you write, unfortunately we are now waiting for the umpteenth vaccination (wth vaccination side effect...) for the umpteenth wave of the virus... Curfews, more restrictions, wearing masks... etc... while our money is being eroded by inflation and high food and fuel prices. welcome to the "brave new world!!" No money, no oxigen, No nothing...
 dule-vu06/07/2022 14:29:44 GMT
We will see what this months will bring to us!
 geseco1209/07/2022 01:58:28 GMT
I believe that these months will be very dark for all of us, but we must face it, it is a reality, it seems like something out of a movie, we must always keep calm and take care of ourselves, not only ourselves but also our loved ones.

many countries began to rise up against their governments and in Japan a politician was shot dead with an improvised weapon and died. Dangerous days will come for people and for politicians and their servants. Covid 19 i think will end this year
 geseco1210/07/2022 02:31:03 GMT
it is a pity what has happened in japan, things always go from bad to worse, but we must always keep calm, now with covid it is much more complicated, many businesses have started to close and that is bad for the economy of a country, but well, we must take care of ourselves.
 dule-vu10/07/2022 07:56:05 GMT
People will know what to do in next months!
 geseco1211/07/2022 03:18:12 GMT
we must only be prepared to face a pandemic like this, for sure the years will pass and worse things will come, the important thing is always to keep calm and take care of ourselves, hopefully this can end in the coming months.
 dule-vu11/07/2022 04:34:38 GMT
On what to prepare more when whole situation is over 2 years and they still talk about it!
 geseco1212/07/2022 03:26:11 GMT
It seems that we are going to return to the way it was two years ago, it is a pity that this is happening, but this is nature, the only thing left is to face it responsibly and take care of ourselves as much as we can.
 dule-vu12/07/2022 04:41:34 GMT
If everything will be as it was months ago,then people will be in problems again!they will not earn enough,they will stay at homes,its just shame!
 geseco1213/07/2022 04:03:58 GMT
it is very sad to know that we can go backwards, in my country they are already prohibiting again the meetings and events of more than 50 people, stricter measures to avoid more contagious, I hope this ends now, but we must always have faith that everything will turn out well.
 dule-vu13/07/2022 04:37:54 GMT
Probably in other countries situation will be same when summ er and hot weather finish in few months!
 geseco1215/07/2022 15:22:27 GMT
I do not know how it will be in a few months, but what we must do is to be prepared and take care of ourselves so that this does not surprise us again, hopefully this will pass quickly to return to normality.
 dule-vu15/07/2022 15:48:26 GMT
Just that they dont close everything again!
 geseco1216/07/2022 16:13:45 GMT
I hope they don't close everything, they should take other measures that are easier to comply with, but we have to adapt to what is coming, this year I thought that the pandemic would end but I think it will not be like that.
 dule-vu16/07/2022 16:14:47 GMT
Who know what they will make for us in next months!
 geseco1217/07/2022 18:57:28 GMT
that's right my friend we don't know what is going to happen in a few months, but what we must always keep calm to face these things that are not easy, but the most important thing is to always avoid contagion by taking care of ourselves and our family members.
 CALICUL17/07/2022 18:58:08 GMT
they want to get smallpox and other bad decisions because they are not tired of the abuses and the destruction of the economies of as many countries as possible. USA want to gain, Russia, Ukraine and China as well. Europeans will lose a lot with their economies...
