Macau closes casinos

HONG KONG, China – Macau on Saturday announced a weeklong shutdown of its casinos and non-essential businesses as the Chinese gambling hub had the worst coronavirus outbreak
Macau will enter “static management” for a week starting July 11 and residents must stay home, in case they break rules, they are liable to be jailed for up to two years, top city official Andre Cheong said at a press conference.
Public services and businesses that are needed for quarantine like supermarkets and pharmacies can stay open, but casinos need to close which in normal times accounted for around 80 percent of government revenue
Health officials said imposing “static management” coupled with intensive PCR testing in the outbreak’s third week would help prevent a resurgence.
Last week authorities locked down one of Macau’s most famous casinos, the Grand Lisboa, and trapped more than 500 people inside after finding 13 infections linked to the venue
Macau hosts a casino industry bigger than that of Las Vegas, accounting for more than half the city’s gross domestic product and employing nearly one-fifth of the population.
The only city in China where casino gambling is permitted, Macau has seen its vital tourism revenues wiped out by some of the world’s tough measures to tackle the virus.

I think this is mandatory to all countries. Maybe China’s pandemic went wider that is even extended in Macau?

It became worst that is why they have to close and yes it affected Macau.
