Maybank Investment Bank has predicted that Genting Malaysia’s Resort World Genting won’t reopen its doors until November due to a rise in Covid-19 cases.

Malaysia.- Genting Malaysia is likely to remain closed for at least another four months, according to analysts at Maybank Investment Bank. Analysts previously expected the casino venue to reopen by the end of August. However, the country has seen a rise in Covid-19 cases.

Resorts World Genting‘s casino has been closed since Macy. It closed all of its services in June, after Malaysian Prime Minister announced a nationwide Covid-19 lockdown. Until then, the resort’s hotels, food and beverage outlets, shopping malls, retail outlets and other facilities remained open.

Yesterday, authorities announced that Covid-19 countermeasures will be eased for those who have been fully vaccinated, including the opening of hair salons, shops selling electrical goods, furniture, sporting equipment and car accessories.

The government expects to achieve herd immunity in October with a daily rate of 400,000 vaccinates a day.
