Casino hub Macau locks down landmark hotel amid COVID surge

Aljazeera says MACAU has locked down one of the city’s most famous hotels, the Grand Lisboa, after more than a dozen COVID-19 cases were found there on Tuesday, with infections spreading rapidly in the world’s biggest gambling hub.

At least 16 other buildings across the special Chinese administrative region are also locked down, with no one allowed to exit or enter.

The authorities have placed more than 13,000 people under quarantine orders as the city battles to contain its biggest outbreak since the pandemic began. Macau has recorded more than 900 coronavirus infections since mid-June. Prior to that, it had largely been COVID-free since an outbreak in October 2021.

The Grand Lisboa is the second casino hotel locked down in recent weeks. Owned by SJM Holdings, which was started by former Macau kingpin Stanley Ho, the Lisboa is one of the city’s most well-known landmarks.
