Malaysia.- Members of the government in Malaysia have discussed possible easing of lockdown measures in the country, which could see casinos reopen.

The Health Ministry met with Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to discuss the lifting of the movement control order (MCO) which is due to expire on April 28.

Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said: “Yes, we did have a meeting with the PM this morning, but more importantly, we discussed in principle the six criteria we have.”

“We discussed the principle, but now we need facts and science behind it before we can table concrete evidence to show that whether we need to extend or not.”

News of an easing of lockdown measures is a boost to Genting and other casino operators in Malaysia.

Earlier this week, they announced a huge reduction in salaries for staff as their operations remain closed in the country.
