In Singapore and local health officials have reportedly included the five-star Marina Bay Sands integrated casino resort on a list of locations recently visited by people who subsequently tested positive for coronavirus.
According to a report from Inside Asian Gaming, the three-tower venue run by the Marina Bay Sands Private Limited subsidiary of American casino behemoth Las Vegas Sands Corporation is one of 16 locations in the former British enclave to feature on the Ministry of Health register. The source detailed that this comes after two individuals who later tested positive for the potentially-lethal contagion were found to have separately visited the property on November 21 and 27.
Opened a little over ten years ago, the 2,561-room Marina Bay Sands with its 160,000 sq ft casino was reportedly closed for a three-month period from April 7 as coronavirus infections across Singapore topped 1,480. Although the impressive property has since been re-opened, it is nevertheless purportedly required to follow a range of revised social distancing and safety protocols that limit every one of its 500 gaming tables to a maximum of three players.
The Ministry of Health reportedly advised those who had visited any of the 16 locations on its watch list, which moreover involves various retail establishments alongside multiple local food and beverage outlets, to immediately begin monitoring their health and seek assistance from a physician if symptoms of coronavirus subsequentially emerge.
