A new outbreak of COVID-19 has caused London’s casino industry to relapse.
This time, however, the outbreak appears to be coming from a “mutant” version of the coronavirus that has caused London Mayor Siddique Khan to describe the new situation as “deeply troubling.” After having been granted permission to reopen their doors on December 2, London’s casinos are now shutting down once again.
Casinos in London have been on a roller coaster for the past several months. They were shut down in March, just like with many others around the world, and didn’t reopen until August – two to three months after casinos in places like New Jersey and Las Vegas started to see signs of life. However, they were forced to retreat again in November before the all-clear was given to return on December 2.
The new shutdown order comes as a mutated COVID-19 strain is making its way through the streets in the U.K. The country’s health ministry, led by Secretary Matt Hancock, explained that the new strain is able to spread quicker than the previous version, but adds that it is not necessarily more dangerous or more vaccine-resistant.
This is certainly going to be bad news for London, given the time of year. The holidays are here and casinos, restaurants, bars and other public venues are going to be off-limits.
