Malaysia’s Resorts World Genting has already been closed, and Signapore’s Resorts World Sentosa has put restrictions in place. But as the COVID-19 situation continues to worsen in both countries, restrictions are becoming equally strict.
Genting Malaysia posted a notice to their website, extending their shutdown to April 14. This comes as an immediate and direct reaction to Malaysia Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, who announced Malaysia’s Movement Control Order (MCO) will be extended an additional two weeks. Malaysia has been the country hardest hit by COVID-19 in South East Asia, with a current tally of 1,796 cases, and 19 dead.
Resorts World Awana, Resorts World Kijal and Resorts World Langkawi, which are also closed due to the MCO, will re-open along with Resorts World Genting, the notice promised, as soon as the MCO ends.
Initially, Resorts World Genting was closed on March 18, and expected to open on March 31. At that time, Malaysia had 790 total positive cases.
