In response to Covid-19, nucleic acid testing is an important part. Throughout the world, nucleic acid testing need to go to hospitals, clinics, and large temporary medical tents. In Macau, there is a new way, going to casinos for nucleic acid testing.
What’s more, the nucleic acid testing stations set up in casinos do not serve local residents, but foreign tourists, because entering the casino requires a nucleic acid negative certificate, which shows that the concept of customer first is everywhere in Macau.
The Health Bureau stated that all six gaming operators applied to the government to set up eight nucleic acid testing station. This meets the standards and the results are credible, and the authorities have no reason to refuse, and also, the results will be reflected in the “health code”. The Health Bureau also stated that the provision of related services by casinos in response to business needs is “no harm” to the entire society.
Looking back, Macau has always implemented a “convenience” policy for gaming operators. The anti-smoking law does not allow indoor smoking, but allows casinos established “indoor smoking rooms” in casinos; the light rail runs around most of the casinos in Cotai; Cotai has filled a lot of land for gaming operators to build casinos.
Of course, gaming operators also play an important role in the development of Macau. During the typhoon period, gaming operators opened parking lots to allow citizens to park for shelter. They also hire thousands of Macau people to support many families.
