Macau.- After the Macau Health Bureau confirmed a seventh case of Coronavirus, Macau authorities and integrated resort operators announced yesterday some facility closures and the suspension of events to avoid the virus from spreading further. 

Authorities published a list of events that have been cancelled, during Golden Week including the traditional dragon and lion dance parade at Macau Fisherman’s Wharf.

Other events to be cancelled include Chinese New Year ceremonies held by Sands China, Tonny Jan’s “Mind Hacker” at The Parisian, Cantopop band The Wynners at The Venetian, Melco’s resident show The House of Dancing Water, Leon Metro Live 2.0 Concert at City of Dreams, and the “Move! into the wildlife” exhibition at Galaxy Macau, according to IAG.

Last night, Melco Resorts & Entertainment announced that it had closed its UA Galaxy Cinemas, Macau Tower Cinema, Cinemateca Paixão, Cineteatro Macau Cinema and Cinema Alegria.

“The health and safety of our guests and colleagues is always our top priority,” said Chairman and CEO Lawrence Ho.
