South Korea opens casinos after the quarantine

Around the world, many gambling establishments were forced to be quarantined due to the growing pace of coronavirus spread and they suffered serious losses.

The casinos in Macau were the first to suffer from quarantine measures. At the beginning of February, all gambling establishments in the region were closed for a two-week period.

The big casinos such as Dusk Till Dawn and King’s Casino were forced to close for an indefinite time. All gambling establishments in Nevada were also quarantined.

However, the casinos in Macau began to open after the quarantine. Some days ago, the Mayor of Las Vegas Carolyn Goodman encouraged the US Government to allow the opening of gambling establishments in Nevada. Otherwise, according to her words, the whole region will face "terrible consequences".

It is worth noting that only foreigners can play in the casinos of these two companies, while South Korean citizens are strictly forbidden to play in these establishments.
