The impact of Covid-19 has been visible in almost every country. The harsh economic situation, unemployment, and discomfort it has brought to the whole world cannot be explained fully.
When the virus first emerged in Wuhan in December 2019 no one would have expected it would take such a great scale. More than 5,000,000 people have been infected, and over 340,000 died. The WHO declared the virus as a pandemic in March, and the United States has become the “leader” country in the number of infected people.
But the President of the United States Donald Trump announced that the country would go to a regular lifestyle despite Covid-19. Several states announced the lifting of the lockdown and surprisingly North Carolina declared the reopening of Indian casinos.
Harrah’s Cherokee Casinos to begin normal functioning
On May 18, 2020, it was announced that Harrah’s Cherokee Casinos would begin gradually reopening after almost 60 days of closure. However, easing restrictions will not go without safety precautions, and there will be notable limitations in the number of people.
Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort is one of the largest and popular places in North Carolina and the United States, respectively. Given the free landscape of the casino industry in the United States, a lot of people visit this resort to play real money slots, poker, roulette. Before the virus emerged in the world, it was a popular place not only for the local citizens but also for tourists as well. However, the closure has had its toll, and it is unclear whether the popularity of the resort will continue in the future or not.
Social distancing will be in force as soon as the resort opens. Initially, only invited guests will have the opportunity to reserve a hotel, and depending on the situation, the number of invitations may increase.
Furthermore, employees who were forced to leave the job temporarily will return to their usual working schedule. They will be required to undergo special checking, and the wearing of face masks will be compulsory during the working times.
Brooks Robinson, who is the Senior Vice President and General Manager of the resort, declared that the working conditions would not be the same as it was before the closure. Social distancing will become a part of the lives of the citizens of the United States, and every customer should obey the rules.
How is the situation in the US in general?
The number of patients with COVID-19 in the United States exceeded 1 million people, according to Johns Hopkins University. In total, more than 1.4 million people have confirmed this disease.
More than 98 thousand people with coronavirus died, with more than 23 thousand deaths occurring in New York, which became the epicentre of the epidemic in the United States.
The United States remains the leader in the number of cases. In second place is Brazil, where more than 341 thousand people with COVID-19 are registered, followed by Russia (335 thousand).
The leader in the mortality of people with coronavirus is the North American country.
US President Donald Trump, speaking at a briefing at the White House on April 7, said that this and next weeks in the country would be difficult, but the situation with the spread of COVID-19 would gradually begin to improve.
A positive sign that the US president considers reducing mortality in New York, which has become the epicentre of the spread of infection.
According to a CNN poll, most Americans are unhappy with how the country’s authorities are coping with the epidemic. Negative work of officials was estimated by 55% of respondents. However, Trump’s rating remains at 44%. Supporters of the Republican Party support him: 80% of them approve of the work of the President of the country in an outbreak.
